Shaker Carrier and Counting Pins

Hurrah! Another small piece from Jackie du Plessis is done! The green vine that you saw in an earlier post became a band of flowers and it fit just inside this tiny shaker carrier made of cherry wood.

The design is repeated on the counting pins. They are stuck into a silk covered pincushion that fits snugly into the base of the carrier.

My banding was a wee bit short once I got it in place, so I stitched a small square with my initial on it. It finishes off the inside perfectly.

Now I need to decide which Jackie piece I will stitch and finish next!
