I was very happy to finish stitching the latest Shepherd's Fold kit pin cushion. I changed the linen and font for the words.
I kept most everything else the same. I changed the ribbon edging of the pin cushion. First I ironed the ribbon, it was intentionally wrinkled. Then I machine sewed a gathering line down the middle of it. I measured the perimeter of my pin cushion. It was about 16 inches. So I gathered up the ribbon to 16 inches and tacked it to the edge with the beads using about eight beads per side.
I like how the edging turned out. I wish the pin cushion was more delicate and smaller but I am happy to have completed it. I wonder what the next kit will be?
What do I work on now? My plan is to work on the Autumn Casket Keepsakes and the Fair Maiden's Work Bag. Although I'd like to work on the Edinburgh Etui too. But I am tempted to start another small thing. I have the butterfly started and I'd like to make some progress on that too. I'll have to see what I feel like.
