Floral Fifteen completed!

Hello lovely friends! Hope you enjoyed Easter weekend. I know Orthodox Easter is this Sunday. We had rain Easter Sunday morning and it didn't stop us from having an Easter Egg hunt. Yep no little's just us adults! The plastic eggs were filled with candy and some eggs only had a small piece of blank paper - which was good for one scratcher ticket - LOL! We had a such good time and a lovely Easter.
I have a completed a new finish...

 "Floral Fifteen" by Just Nan
32ct Off White linen & 32ct Just Green linen - DMC threads

This is my first ever Biscornu! Also this is one of my projects from Debbie's Challenge started back in January and it's DONE!!!!! WOOHOO!!! I just love all the colours. Most biscornu's are 4 sided. This is a 15 sided biscornu pincushion. That's why its named Floral Fifteen!  On each square there are tiny green striped beads and on each of the green linen squares they have pearls. The 5 green squares are all on the sides of the pincushion. I am so thrilled how it turned out. This finish is the 5th of 15 projects for Debbie's Challenge. 



 View on its side!

I received happy mail yesterday! Vickie sent me this beautiful bookmark & card as a thank you for sending her some pink fabrics for her project. She stitched my initial "A" and it's PINK!!  I LOVE it Vickie Thank you!!! 

 On the back Vickie stitched a beautiful  metallic silver cross!

16ct antique white adia - Threads: CC Frog Legs, DMC 151 & Cosmo #8046 (variegated)

 I stitched up this pretty egg last week and finished the beading on Easter day! It's a freebie that can be found HERE by Olga Maxden. There are 3 parts and beautifully charted. Easy to follow!


 It's now April and we are still to have some showers of rain. But the sun keeps making an appearance:)
Thank you for visiting me. With my Love and Appreciation - Annette
