We are having a Mattress Pincushion Exchange in my Icelandic stitching group. Names were sent out on Thursday. Last night my friend Aisté came over and gave me this beautiful Mattress Pincushion for the exchange. She finished it in just one day! She is the fastest stitcher I know! Isn’t it just gorgeous?
I have wanted to stitch this design again for myself ever since I made the Pinkeep for a drawing I had here on my blog but now I don’t have to 🙂 Thank you so much Aisté! And for all the Reeses Peanutbutter Cups! They are my favorite!
Me, Aisté and Rósa went shopping today. I didn’t buy much. But I did find these glorious shell buttons that I have been searching for everywhere! I have a plan for those. So I know what my next project will be. It is going to be Trousse Fleurs Bleues By C Mon Monde. I have had the pattern in my stash for a long time, I just didn’t want to do all the stitching and then not be able to do the finishing. Yeah, I could have used whatever buttons, but I have always had a thing for the shell buttons. They are so beautiful!
Well. I have made great progress on the Mattress Pincushion I am making for my partner so I am going to try to get most of it finished today and this evening. Have a great stitchy weekend everyone!
