My baby has found it’s way home. Actually, it’s been home for about a week but I’ve been playing with it on and off during that time adding the last finishing touches and I finally finished it this morning.
This is how it started out. I created the base, appliquéd the crow and then sent it on to Karen.
Karen added her magic by creating the pumpkin tree…
and then sent it on to Paulette who continued with the Autumn theme. Isn’t this scarecrow to die for?
Paulette then sent it on to Lori, the last stop in the round robin before coming home. Lori added a darling black cat sitting in a pumpkin surrounded by acorns and oak leaves.
The round robin for my pincushion base was now complete. All four participants including myself had contributed to the design. Lori then returned it to me to finish.
After adding some additional elements and fancy stitching to fill in some of the open spaces, I completed it this morning by creating a pocket to stuff with crushed walnut shells then blanket stitched around the perimeter to seal it closed.
Ta da! May I present my round robin pincushion!
Don’t you just ♥ it?
I can’t tell you how much fun this was. The four of us were committed to getting the job done and in a timely manner. I now have a one-of-a-kind pincushion that combines the talents of three dear friends and fellow ‘wool crazy buddies’. Thank you so much Karen, Paulette and Lori…from the bottom of my ♥
