Close Up and Personal

Many thanks to all the wonderful comments made about Petal Pincushion. 

Due to Chrisitina's persistence, Just Cross Stitch magazine will be putting out instruction revisions on their website.  It's a bit late for her and me, but at least it'll be out there for anyone else who wants to do this design.

For your viewing pleasure, here are some close up photos of my Petal Pincushion:

lovely pincushion Meari – so glad your improvisations work out well. Isn’t it frustrating when the instructions provided are not good.

Beautiful job, Meari! I also loved your from-stash chart-holder.

That's what my Manhasset stand does when it's not being used for lessons :-)

Happy stitching and God bless--

Very pretty, Meari. Definitely looks like a challenging piece, but nicely finished.

As is often the case, I'm kind of far behind on my reading, so hoping to get caught up on the rest of your blog very soon.
