Red and White Pincushion

In the Yahoo group I belong to, we have a monthly pincushion swap, January's theme was red and white so here is what I came up with for my partner. I promised myself that this year I would use and try out all the stitches and features on my sewing machine. I bought it 18 months ago and still haven't really put it thru its paces, but I do love it....... just wish I could have bought it years ago! In case your wondering its a Bernina Aurora 440QE, and it really is a joy to use.
Pink and black are the colours for the next pincushion swap, so thinking cap is on.....

Another Fairy

I have been very slack these last couple of months with my blogging, but I hope to be more 'on the ball' with postings from now on!

Here's the second fairy I made from the Ann Clemens pattern, Wattle Nymph. It's a good pattern to use, fits together well, but a little large for what I wanted so I reduced it by 25%. I shall make it again at full size when I have finished what I have on the go at the moment.
