It was very fun to make and I got it done in a couple of hours. It is now sitting on the table near the foyer with the other St. Patrick’s Day décor. I discovered I do not have a lot of March 17 stitching, this item is number three, if you don’t count the table runner I made.
Also the project for my Foothills EGA meeting this month was a Petite Project “Assisi Embroidery Pin Cushion” designed by Janet Salerno. We learned a little history about this technique and then worked on the project. It does not use the traditional colors, but an overdyed floss. I did not like the stripe affect I got on top very much (but don’t hate it so in it stays), so when I got to similar spaced area at the bottom I did not go all the way across. I stopped in the middle, but staggered the lines. I also cut the floss to give me more blue or tan areas, so as to get less striping. It was fun to experiment on a small piece – it is approximately 4 inches square.
Have a GREAT weekend everyone!!
