Think Pink



As we all know this month is Think Pink month in aid of Breast cancer awareness, so I stitched and finished yesterday this wee pincushion. The deisgn is Assissi birds from from The Gift of Stitching, the thread is a polstitches Dragon Floss - but I lost the label so couldn't tell you the colour. I've stitched it on 32ct linen.
I'm wanting to stitch the lovely pinkeep that Mary Kathryn designed, I ordered and received it a couple of weeks ago, but not had time yet, but I do hope to have it done before the end of the month.

As you probably can tell my finishing Mojo has returned, from wherever it visited, so I'm pleased about that! so much so, I have now done the finishing on my Autumn seasonal exchange - look out Nicki, it will be coming down to you this week sometime, and also my SBEBB LHN exchange, thats all done and dusted too in readiness for posting next month.

Currently finishing Christmas ornies, pictures of those later this week perhaps.

Finally catching up with my blog reading and love the bag and your pin cushion. The tutorial is wonderful! Now to see if I don't have something finished that would make a pretty bag and follow your directions. Thanks for sharing!
