An English Paper Pieced Pincushion: Diamonds


This was a fun small project I made awhile back for a sweet friend.

Not sure if I ever blogged about this project, perhaps I did. Lately my memory is a bit fuzzy.... will blame the fatigue and lack of sleep. (The background in the picture above is from a Japanese embroidery book.)

A small EPP hexagon pincushion formed by basting fabric on tiny diamonds, and then hand sewing them together. Wanted to use crushed walnut shells to fill it, but do to my concern in bringing the walnut shells home and my kids having an adverse reaction being around it (they have a life threatening allergy to nuts), I decided to go with Polyfil.
Let you go now. I wanted to go do some volunteer work this morning to support a special visit... but not feeling well, a fibromyalgia flare is looming. Perhaps I could go for just a short time, that will probably cheer me up a bit! Until next time!
