This is the pincushion I made for Fiona. It's double sided because I couldn't decide.
I love the effect of the cross stitching on the seams, taken from Anni Downs Heart and Soul pincushion design. I used crushed walnut shells and it felt so heavy and squishy, very solid.
So our little pincushion swap was a happy success. I'm thinking about trying my hand at doing a bigger one, but might have to get some tips from the experts first.......
