Happiness is cross stitching blog

Cross stitched Peacock Mattress Pincushion has arrived.



The Peacock Cross Stitched Mattress Pincushion has arrived at it’s new home! I am so glad you liked my exchange Jill, it was a pleasure to stitch, and yes it really was my first mattress pincushion stitched over 1.
I live only just over an hour away from the home of Beatrix Potter and I based the exchange around that theme. I included a porcelain thimble with a picture of Beatrix Potters house on it, some postcards that showed the garden where Peter Rabbit lived and some purple DMC thread that I knew Jill would like and last but not least, the mattress pincushion pattern was a freebie from Papillon Creations . It was stitched on 25 count Dublin Lugana with DMC threads 3765, 3816 and 422.

Well I can rest easy now, knowing that another exchange has arrived safely, I suppose I better get stitching on the Christmas Ornament exchange now.

Thanks for looking everyone, have a nice day!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
