March complete

I traced the stitchery band for the pincushion
yesterday afternoon and did the stitchery last
night while watching MKR. 

I also cut the fabric for the top & bottom

and voila




a complete SKOW pincushion

I used the same fabric range that I used for the Tote bag
and have decided that the needlebook & sewing case
will also be made with

Independence Trail by Minnick & Simpson.

Then I will have a matching set :)
