Now that my sister has received it, I can reveal what the finished felt and embroidery project I started a month or so ago was.
Voila, this is the sea urchin pincushion based on the pattern from Jo Avery's book, Modern Crewel Embroidery.
I changed the colours she prescribed for bright in your face threads, based on this glorious fabric from Alison Glass. As I have lots of cotton embroidery threads in my stash, I used these instead of wool thread and I decided to add a band of the beautiful fabric to the sides of the pincushion to tie it all together. I especially like the texture from the seed and chain stitch panels.
This was a nice fun little project, and there were lots of others I would like to try from the book too.
