Description

I'm not really sure what's inspired me specifically. I ordered some EPP papers from Paper Pieces a few weeks ago for my Mother-in-law and at the last minute added on some diamonds - 1" and 1/2" (the 1/2" are TINY and I haven't used those for this project!

I was at my LQS today and with my green Dear Jane in mind I picked up two beautiful green's from a Red Rooster Christmas range - the pattern is subtle enough that you can't tell it's Christmassy in small pieces. I left my machine at the shop for a service and haven't bothered to dig out my back up Pfaff.

I got home and was sorting out some bits and pieces to take away for the next two weeks (business trip in Budapest - seriously cutting into my time to make Christmas presents!) and realised I didn't have a small pincushion.... I found some text print (Crabtastic) and just stitched them together and popped a button in the middle.

Not rocket science, but very pretty colours matched with texty fabric means it's very hard to go wrong!

I may do something like this for the Christmas Ornament Swap - any thoughts?

You're not kidding, those 2 greens are wonderful with just the right hint of gray in them to compliment the text fabric. Yummy!
