Reveal Day

The monthly challenge at Stitch and Stash is an exciting SAL and today is the reveal for us all to see which free design we chose to stitch from A Mon Ami Pierre. Another great month, the ladies have done some amazing work (well done girls), you can see all the finishes in this album. It was a hard decision this month, i liked them all. Choice finally made, this one just screamed mattress pin cushion to me when i saw it. A flash of inspiration and out came the DMC linen threads as i decided on paler colours. I've not used the colourays asked for but chose what i wanted from the bobbin box as i was stitching. Fabric is 26ct oatmeal that was an oddment i had in my stash drawer. It's a bit of a fiddly finish but well worth the effort. On the back i just stitched 2009 in the blue thread.
