A finish and a start

I finished my Doily Tat-A-Long last night. It's designed by Faizon for our SNN group. You could continue tatting this same motif again and again and join them to make a bigger piece. So it's quite versatile really. But I will stop here as I am contemplating to applique this motif to a book cover I want to make. Hmmm...the idea's still brewing...


Stealing an idea from Jess of NNC, I am going to finish this tiny piece of quaker stitching from the Quaker 6 Mains Ensemble into a 9 square pin cushion. The stitching will be for the middle square. Jess has been doing up hexagons, but I thought "OK I am adventurer but I am no fool!!". Hexs are mighty difficult when I walk through the finishing in my mind.

It's gonna be a rather big pin cushion i.e 6"square, but my basket of 'smalls' will fill up much quicker ;) I think the pieces of fabric look quite classy...we'll have to wait till it is finished though.
