My Last Strawberry Creation

Hello my dear friends,

today I would like to share my final strawberry pincushion with you. This one is a bit special because for the first time I have sewn beads onto one of my creations. I had never done this before and I am surprised how easy it was really. See, always try something new ~ you will be surprised what you can accomplish.

I used the same vintage tan velvet which I used in a previous strawberry and also pieces of vintage doilies to embellish this pincushion and I decided not to use my last 'brass thing' from the antique store for this creation which has worked out very well. The final touch came in the form of a vintage looking earring ~ creation complete! I took many pictures again so you can see everything properly!

I just love this creation!

What am I working on now?  ~ Well more than one thing again. I will have to see which one of them will be finished first so I can share it soon with you again.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.

  4. Karen,
    These are absolutly amazing! Tan velvet is probably my favorite thing ever, even better than lace. I love the beads on it too. Perfect! Lisa
