Easter SAL & mattress pincushion

The 7th part of the easter SAL made it into a mattress pincushion, completed it just in time for the last part which we had received yesterday. I really enjoyed stitching this design and kind of sorry it is over but hopefully not the last.




Many many THANKS for all the birthday greetings for hubby's birthday. It was a great success! I will show some pics later as i haven't sorted them all out yet. TOO busy here...socially, i'm not much home the last days. Have lots to show as i went to "Keukenhof" flower park yesterday with friends. This weekend...more activities to go too so hopefully next week will be back to normal schedule...i hope!!!

Everyone a "Happy weekend"!!!

I've never made one matress pincushion! I need to try it, do you find it difficult? It's probably easier than a biscornu.. What do you think?
Have a nice weekend sweetie :D

Your mattress pincushion is so sweet, Mylene. I've never tried one before; is it very hard?

Your SAL is almost done--looks beautiful, too :)

Love the mattress pin cushion! I would love to make one. And your SAL piece loks gorgeous!
I still have to do that part on mine. I am working on an exchange piece that I had problems with and had to frog a big portion. I should have it done today then I can work on my SAL.

Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

Your SAL piece is so lovely Mylene! And I love that you always make an ornament, not "only" the SAL piece. Lately I do not stitch too much, but I have also made some little ornaments are presents.

I hope you have nice weather for the coming Easter holidays. Here we had great weather which will change just when Easter comes :(
