Pincushion Finish!

Just like I said in my last post, sometimes it is more fun to think about stitching...so yesterday, I spent an hour or so going through my bucket of kitted projects. I happened to come across a kit that I had purchased from Elegant Stitch a few years ago (2006 I think!) After looking at it closer I realized 1) that it wasn't nearly as big a project as I thought it was and 2) that I could finish it quite easily since I had already done this type of finish once before.

I decided there was no time like the present to stitch and finish this project. It only took me a couple of hours to stitch it up, and this morning while waiting for the internet/cable guy to arrive, I did the finishing.

Without further ado here is Two Friends and a Flower, designed by The Needle's Content for Elegant Stitch/Essy's Friends (Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraiser).




Cute, don't you think?

You are so perfectly right - going through your kitted projects or browsing your old charts and magazines is just as exciting as stitching itself. And what a result it sometimes has! Your finished project is just gorgeous!
