Can you believe I’ve had this pattern for over two years and am finally finishing it?? I’ve had it cut out and in my traveling stitchy bag for a year and a half but I don’t travel that much and when I do, I seem to be the driver and if I’m not, I seem to have a project that need to be pinned.
Anyway when Kelli and I went to Kansas City for the photo shoot for our new book, Country Girl Modern, I brought along my stitchy bag….I didn’t even remember what was in it…just knew I’d likely have a little stitchy time in the hotel and I’d be content with whatever was in it.
In my bag…my flag pincushion.
The only thing I needed to do was to stitch the red stripes down. In a half hour it was all stitched and back in the stitchy bag.
I bought the pattern for this some time ago when I went with the Country Threads gals to Cincinnati. The pattern is a Primitive Gatherings offering. Oh I love their stuff. I wish I had more time to make them…I especially love the wool offerings.
I didn’t put buttons on mine but now I am thinking maybe I should have…I always can.
It’s nice to have this checked off the list and finished…This pincushion will likely be the pincushion at the guest sewing machine at the new house.
