I stitched these lovely embroidery squares a few years ago. Aren't they dear?!
These sweet designs by Rebekah Shucksmith were featured in the June 2011 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine. I love, love, love embroidery, but as an adult, hadn't come across any designs I liked until I saw these. I immediately stitched them up, but then didn't know quite what to do with them. They were intended to be sachets, but I hated to tuck such lovely stitching away in a drawer.
I revisited them today, wondering if I should stitch some more squares and incorporate them into a quilt at some point. I may just do that, but in the meantime, I thought I'd go ahead and at least turn one of them into a pin cushion.
Some piping and vintage buttons complete the look.
Can't wait to stitch some more - I thoroughly enjoyed ever single moment of working on these. I felt like a young girl again, stitching away!
