Cupcakes made of wood

Haven't stitched a whole lot since last week, as I have apparently become sick. It's inevitable, given the season. I am hoping to be able to stitch some today. I am forgoing my usual trip to Stitcher's Paradise, as I do not want to get the ladies sick.


Last week, I purchased this cute little pincushion at Stitcher's Paradise during my weekly stitch in. It's by Blackbird Designs and I love it. The design originally called for Gentle Arts Antique Rose and Weeks Dye Works Baked Apple threads on 30 count St. Valentine's Blend fabric by R & R Reproductions. I decided to use what I had in my stash instead. Here is my version of it:


Design: Cupcake


Designer: Designer: Blackbird Designs



Fabric: 28 count Jobelan in Queen Anne's Lace



Fiber: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Tulip


Top of cupcake:

I am now wanting to stitch a workbox in the same manner as my SanMan Originals workbox to go with the pincushion. I am torn between their Loose Feathers #35, Peacock Pinkeep, the Loose Feather #14 design, Summer House, or something out of the Honeysuckle Manor book, which I seem to be favoring, at the moment.


Well, at any rate, I best get some breakfast. Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Stay healthy! :)
