Strawberry Delight No. 3 ..

Hello my dear friends,

just like I said in yesterday's post, the creation I am sharing with you today is my third pincushion in my little line that I have called 'Strawberry Delight'.  Again just like the first two, this one is made from an old tarnished sugar bowl and my favorite drop cloth. With this pincushion I decided to use both seam binding and sari silk ribbon, a small piece of a vintage tatted doily and of course it wouldn't be right without my little drop cloth strawberries. A little old worn button completes this creation.

And this it is ...

... my ' Strawberry Delight' No. 3 pincushion.
I am very happy with the way this creation turn out again and I already have a few more planned.


I hope you have enjoyed my latest creation as much as I have enjoyed making it.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit me here at Todolwen ~ it is always so nice when you do and I would love for you to return some time maybe again.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
