More Berries ...


Hello my dear friends,

I am "walking" down my path of making strawberry pincushions right now and it seems that I found my "happy place" for the time being when it comes to being creative. 

Last year I had a custom order to create a pincushion using a beautiful candle stand/holder and I decided to use a large strawberry made from drop cloth with it and created this!


I love the way it turned out ... just lovely! I was very happy and so was my customer.

I liked it so much, that now after several months I wanted to make something like it again.
I had a few candle stands/holders hiding away in one of my drawers since what seems forever and one of them was perfect for what I had in mind. Of course the berries had to again be made from my favorite drop cloth and this time I didn't use seam binding but instead beautiful sari silk ribbon in a pretty shade of green. Also instead of embroidering the large strawberry, I decided to embellish it with some vintage tatting. Little berries that are filled with crushed walnut shells were also a must for my newest piece.

 My pincushion is now completed and I am excited to share it with all of you today. I am so very pleased with the way it turned out, just like I had imagined it would.

And this is it ...

... my "Simply Berrylicious" pincushion.















And that is my newest pincushion. 
I feel that every individual part of it was meant to come together to become one lovely creation.

I already have another pincushion to share with you. I should have done so before I shared this one but I seem to have camera issues these days. The focus on my camera might not bet working properly because some of my pictures turn out slightly blurry. As soon as this is fixed, I will of course share it with all of you again. Right now I am busy working away on another pinkeep as I am writing this post and I am hoping to share it with you very soon.

I hope you have enjoyed my newest pincushion as much as I am enjoying making them. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit me today, it is always so nice when you do.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.
