Pincushion finished!!!

Here it is, the finished pincushion. It pretty much looks like what I could see in my head but not quite. I will make another one and then post the pattern. The way I constructed this one was just a little difficult and someone trying to make it might get frustrated and toss the thing across the room like a football! I am in Redwork mode this week because I am thinking of my mother who taught me to sew and embroider. She will celebrate her 80th birthday this coming weekend. She has reached the point where she can't use any more fabric, or pincushions, or other pretties but I wanted to make something that says "my mother". And this is it! She loves to embroider and has done some lovely Redwork. She enjoys handwork and has shared it with friends and family. So this is called "Mary's Pincushion". Hope you enjoy it!

Love your pincushion design. It's simple and sweet and perfect for a mother. You are so lucky to have yours with you still. =)
