Ta-Da...finished March

Just in the nick of time!!!....
With all the excitement of going to GDITC at Nundle last weekend, I nearly forgot to complete my pin cushion....But here it is!




 Kate won this little pack of Savonnerie fabric at Nundle and very generously gave it to me.
I love this range...have had pieces of it for years but never used it (as you do) until I dragged it out to do a thread catcher and then the pincushion ......I never even knew its name!...such a coincidence!
Thanks Kate...you'll see more of it in projects to come.

I used Kris's technique of putting doll beads in ....but mine ended up a little skew whiff! and weighted on one side....OH well I guess it will be good to throw at my husband!!

I'd better check what we have to do for April...Have a lovely Easter everyone.
