In between other crazy quilt projects, I'm tucking a few little pincushions. I find them quick projects and a fun way to experiment with ideas while turning out a completed project at the same time.
I started off with a square of unbleached muslin, on which I pieced some lovely blushing silk dupioni in a circle 1/4" larger than a CD, which I used as my template. Then with some lovely silk pearl cotton and beading threads, I stitched the seam embellishments and added a piece of French lace received from Corey Amaro!
I added a millinary flower from my stash, some old shabby sequins left over from some ballet costume work I did years ago, a few worn faux pearls and rosey colored beads from my stash.
The bottom seam is embellished with a bit of ivory cotton eyelash yarn leftover from my Mother's weaving days!
