Recently I bought some threads from Thistle Threads so I could make a free project from that website.  The project is the pink pin cushion.
These are the threads that I bought:
I wasn't sure how to start.  I found some silk in my Cabinet of Curiosities kit that was left over from lining the trinket box.  It looks like it is the right color.  Then I wasn't sure whether I should back the silk with some muslin.  In hindsight, I probably should have.  But I didn't.  I put the silk on stretcher bars.
Then I couched and couched.

I got one corner all done.
I need to fill in the other petals and leaves in the other corners and add some spangles.  Maybe I can finish it today!  I'll have to check and see if I have some nice backing fabric for it.
I'm going to start packing today for our trip.  I'm excited.


  1. Lovely work! Have fun packing and holidaying.

  2. Pretty!
    I'm sure you are excited to see your son and his family, have fun.
