I received Lori’s pincushion base on Tuesday and I got to work on it right away.
I had an idea of what I wanted to add to it after seeing Lori’s initial blog post about what she had appliquéd and I took my inspiration from that. She chose a Summer theme and loves to decorate with an Americana flair.
If you recall, there are four of us who are participating in the Round Robin…myself, Lori, Karen and Paulette. We each designed our own base, selected a theme and appliquéd the first design. All the elements and background must be made from wool. Once we completed our initial design, we then sent them on to the next gal who then adds her magic to it. The Round Robin is complete once all four of us have appliquéd something on each of the four pincushion bases.
Here’s Lori’s now after I got done with it.
Then I decided that the heart ‘needed’ a little button and added some ‘extra’ fancy stitching.
Later today it will be in the mail on it’s way to Karen.
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow because it’s the First Friday of the month which means another Freebie for you all to enjoy!
