An easy beginners wool applique pincushion stitched in Cottage Garden 8# perle thread and enhanced with beads and sequins. The background and leaves are hand dyed felted wool fabric. The ric rac is hand dyed and embroidered. I've added one of the new Bronze crown treasures as a special focus.

I would like to introduce you to the wonderful primitive style scissors that have just arrived in stock.
They are great fun for scissor collectors and they are nice and sharp and practical too. Look for them under Accessories and Scissors
I love the new Bronze treasures as they have a lovely warm, smooth, antique feel to them. Plus I have a thing about keys - you can't have too many! They are great for crazy patchwork, tassels, collage and jewelry making. Find them in Buttons and Treasures.
Strawberries are another one of my favourite things!
