FNSI


For FNSI i decided to finish off this cute pin cushion designed by Leanne Knell


Its quite a quick little project to do


I am pleased with the finish.


I had trouble with the dye running again,when ironing water spilt out on the stitchery and i had red dye everywhere so it all came out with a good soak,thank goodness.


I wanted to add it to this gift.
To see what the other girls got up to go here,a big thankyou to Wendy for hosting.

For my next project i am not going to get caught with the dye running so i have soaked my country garden threads in salted water and then rinsed and then dried on a towel.

  5. That is the sweetest design Shez...beautiful! Looks so lovely with the wall hanging....gorgeous pair xx I always soak mine too before stitching. If you dry it on paper towel you can see just what is soaking into the paper and whether you need to soak some more.

  7. Boy Shez you have been a crafting dynamo! Love your little bunting and such a pretty pincushion too.
    Bummer about the cotton running, I suppose better to be safe than sorry and give it a quick soak first

  12. How darling - but golly, the dye running! My aunt just told me that when she was a little girl, my grandmother would have her soak things in salt water to set the dye - it works!

  17. Very cute pincushion , glad the dye came out. Good idea to pre-sale the threads so this won't happen again.

  18. Sweet pin cushion! I am curious about the pre-soaking too. Does it change the colour of the thread at all?
