Pincushion for a Friend

It was recently my friend Clare's birthday and last week I finally finished this little pincushion for Clare.  

 Couture d Automne by Les Creations des Chrystalle
stitched on 32 count belfast linen using recommended threads


I used some pretty Lynette Anderson fabric for the backing.


Awhile ago I was given a Kreinik Cord Maker Winder and this has your cord made in no time!


I found some pretty lace and ric rac in my trims basket.


 And a little heart button to add


I loved stitching this little design, I think I'll have to restitch it again sometime for my smalls basket:)

As always, many thanks for the lovely comments left on my previous post!
