Rose Cottage Mattress Pin Cushion

Hi everyone, I finished Rose Cottage, (my latest cross stitch design) into a sweet mattress pincushion.

There are over 200 french knots but I love stitching them so it was easy, can't say that about the finish though as I always find mattress pincushions to be quite fiddly and this was no exception. 

When I was a little girl I used to draw a cottage with a picket fence and roses around it, this is where the inspiration came from.

Hope you like it!

Happy stitching.

Meet and Greet...........

Hello everyone, today is Meet and Greet day!
This idea was from Mdm Samm at Sew we Stitch blog here, where you can see a list of bloggers that are involved in the Meet and Greet.

What is it about?
Well, we introduce ourselves to new readers, talk a bit about ourselves and   show at least three photographs of our favourite finishes. 

I have been cross stitching for 28 years, I also design cross stitch patterns, in particular my free mini cat designs, that are available on my blog and in my Craftsy store here I also love dressmaking, crochet and polymer clay modelling. I frequently finish my cross stitches into boxes and show my tutorials on my cross stitch finishing blog.

 I apologise to my regular readers but you have probably seen these photographs before.

This is my handmade box and toblerone needlecase with accessories, they were made from a flat piece of card and finished into these stitching items.

I hope you enjoy these photographs!

This little pink set is another of my favourite boxes.

I really enjoyed making this little selection. 

One of my favourite mini quilts, I stitched this using a pattern from Bronwyn at the Red Brolly Blog. I made matching tags and sent this to a partner in a gift exchange.

Until next time, happy stitching!
