Blackbird's Summer Harvest FINISHED!!!

Finally - a finish to share with you! This is Blackbird's Summer Harvest Needlebook & Pincushion. It was from a class last October. I didn't get to attend the class, but I was able to get the kit. I finally got it finished today and here are some pics for you...


Here it is open - I had to change the lining fabric to one I had in my stash as the piece in the kit wasn't long enough. It's the same print, just a different color. I like all the BBD's Moda fabrics & have quite a few in my fabric stash - go figure that I had this one. The fabric that came with it was a peach color. I like this better (of course!).

And the base of the pincushion is a wooden base painted blue, made by Alma's DH - it came in the kit as did all the trims, etc.

It feels like it's been so long since I've had any stitching to share, but I have been stitching a bit here & there. Not enough, of course, but some! I hope to remedy that soon & stitch every night! :-)

Thanks for stopping by & happy stitching!!

PS-The pattern from the kit has already been passed on, just in case anyone was interested in it. :-)
