Bullion Stitch Pincushion
Yesterday, I made this lovely pincushion from Kathy's wonderful pattern. I saw her lovely creation at the forum and immediately asked her if I could test it. I was a bit scared because I had never done a bullion stitch. I tried before, but had only gotten frustrated. Now, with Kathy's pattern and words of encouragement, I gained some confidence and was surprised that I could actually make it with my regular hooks :) Also, I used only small amounts of size 8 threads and scrap fabric.
My bullion stitches look quite different, but I know its because of the hook (I used size 2 IMIA steel hook). Learning the technique is what matters and this was surely a wonderful learning experience :D
