Some finished stuff

I've been doing a few bits and pieces I made this pin cushion as a gift for a lady who has been stitching with us on Tuesdays for the last few months and is now returning to England. It is a great pattern and very quick and easy. I could also practice my free motion quilting on it.

I found the pattern here.

I also finished stitching this..... it is really cute as is most of Natalie's stitcheries.

Here is the inside you can use it to put your threads, a small cutting mat and all your bits and pieces in.

The pattern is a Cinderberry Stitches pattern called "A stitchers's Treasure"and I got it from Hetties Patch.

I have just finished the stitchery for the Stitchers Treasure and was hoping to get it finished this week but my sewing machine is going away for a service (much needed) so I will be restricted to hand sewing until I get it back...I have added this project to my five to finish by the end of July challenge! Love the fabrics you have used Leanne! the pin cushion is lovely....I still need to get mine finished for the swap with Linda......
