Recently I bought an embroidery machine because Amazon had such an amazing deal I couldn't resist. I had already bought DD an embroidery/sewing combo so didn't really need to buy another one but with an Amazon coupon and the one day deal I went for it. As it turned out, Caroline, at SewCanShe was designing some embroidery patterns and needed testers.
When the embroidery was done, I couldn't find my polyester stuffing or the crushed walnut shells that I have a boat load of. I had to ask hubby if he had seen either one. We have been cleaning and organizing so I don't know where my stuff are. I was about to go to the store to buy some stuffing material but he found my crushed walnut shells and I was able to finish my project.
If you would like this pattern, Caroline is offering it for free so go and grab it. It is a cute design and the pincushion finishes at 4". I used Aurifil thread 50 wt.
I also made something else incorporating this embroidery pattern.
