My pincushion is done!


I just made the very last stitch on my pincushion. Now I have to make a peace with the sewing machine and actually turn this piece to a pincushion. I had a great time while working on this project. It is my very first Scarlet Letter. I bought this kit in December and start stitching on December 22nd. It is done on 25 ct linen with silk floss one over one.

Thank you ladies, it was a pleasure to stitch it.

Marlene, inside the windows are tiny single cross stitches. The whole pincushion was stitched using petite cross stitches and only the inside of hearts and the bowls had some satin stitches. If you click on the picture you can see more details.
