I've finished my Pincushion for my partner in the Fab Little Pincushion Swap on Flickr.
My lovely children bought me The Liberty Book of Home Sewing for my Christmas and I think it is a really beautiful book. I decided that the Peacock Pincushion would hopefully be something that my partner would love.
He looked a bit like a deranged duck to start with but after some great suggestions from the others in the swap group I mixed the Liberty scraps with Kona solids for his tail and I think he's turned out rather nicely. My partner may have mentioned that she/he would like a little thread catcher so I used this tutorial to make one. It was so quick and easy!
So Mr Peacock will be off to his new home tomorrow. I'll be a bit sad to see him go.
