Try Something New

Alas! Sweet Finch is ready to fly! :-) 

A cross stitch kit design by Samplers Not Forgotten... this pin cushion and scissor fob were super fun to stitch! The colors of floss a delight, the over one a challenge (with a pleasing result).... and a "new to me" technique to finish the edges of the pin cushion...

The pin cushion finished at 5 1/2" x 3 1/2". It is firmly stuffed with scraps of wool, fabrics and cotton batting. Pin and button accent is included in the kit.

The scissor fob finished at 2" x 1 1/2". It is lightly stuffed with scraps of cotton batting. Cording is braided Weeks Dye Works floss. Backing fabric is included in the kit.

And, a detail pic of the finishing... aged ric rack, tacked down by weathered beads! Love it! It was easy to do...and I'm looking forward to using this technique on future projects!

I do have a few quilt kits and quilting related items listed for sale on eBay (all ending this Thursday evening, the 4th). If you are interested, click HERE to view them.

Another Samplers Not Forgotten design is in the frame... updates soon! :-)

Stay safe, healthy and stitch on! :-)



  1. Such a soft, pretty little cushion. And that is a very nice method of finishing the edge--looks delicate and sweet.

  2. Such a sweet piece and wonderful finish

  3. Just beautiful Sharon! I love the soft aged colours & Love, love the finish on the edge. I clicked to enlarge the pic to get a better view. Gorgeous!

  4. Sharon I may have to steal that rickrack idea. Perfection in both pieces, stitching and finishing. I applaud you!!

  5. A beautiful finish. Love the aged look and the ric rac and bead idea.
