More Stitchin' & Pin Cushions Galore

Well I've been busy stitchin' & sewin'.
I kind of got sidelined on a pin cushion sewing adventure for a while, but then got my stitchin' mojo back and made a Needle & Scissor Case with a matching Fob.
Now, if I can only find a pair if prim scissors in black the look would be complete.
You can click on the pictures for a better view.

Here is the front & the inside of my needle & scissor case along with it's matching fob. I designed everything but the big fancy scissors, I got them from a freebie pattern. It is stitched on 32ct. linen tea-dyed after stitching, using DMC thread in 310 & 115. I even tea-dyed the felt piece. I got the fabric from Hobby-Lobby and made the cording from the same DMC threads.

Here are the passel of pincushions I sewed up. There are two tomatoes with strawberry emery's, a strawberry with a strawberry emery, two strawberry emery's (hanging), two pumpkins and a little tomato. Aren't they just too cute.

I also fabric covered a couple of cardboard textile bobbins to wrap some of my flat trims on. I definitely need to make some more of these.
You can find the pattern here:

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a piece of yourself behind, I really do appreciate all of your comments, they make me smile & keep me motivated.
I hope you all have a great weekend filled with sunny weather and lots of stitching fun.

Take Care & Happy Stitching
