Embroided Pincushion

This is not quilting, but I was feeling like showing one of my pincushions that I re-discovered after putting order in my studio. I think that this embroidery was meant to be a big one (I don't remember what exactly) but it remained at the size of a pincushion!! I suppose the work of cross-stitching on a raw piece of old linen was tedious and backbreaking, and it discouraged me from going further!

  2. I tried cross stitching after many years and decided my eyes are not what they used to be! Your pin cushion is so pretty!

    1. Thanks Lori. I did a lot of cross stitch until about two years ago that I finished an alphabet on very thin dark linen, and I understood my eyes were getting tired!
