Mattress Pincushion for Amy - Make A Wish -vaihto Amylle




Country Cottage Needleworks: Geranium House (part of the design)
30 count natural linen
DMC threads + Atalie thread (colour Geranium)

I heard on Friday that Amy has received this mattress pincushion I made for her in Make a Wish Exchange. Amy wished for a mattress pincushion with themes like flowers, gardening, white picket fence, birds etc. I found this chart in Italy in July and thought it will be perfect :) On the other side I added Amy's initials and on the other I stitched a mirror image of the flower and fence. I'm happy you like it Amy, it was the first mattress pincushion I've stitched and I enjoyed stitching it for you!

We had such a wonderful day yesterday! Tuula invited our local stitching group to stitch for the whole day and we had so much fun! Tuula is a special person, a wonderful stitcher and friend, thank you Tuula for everything and thank you everyone else for the best company ever :)

PS. Just to clarify as someone asked, anyone may participate in my ornament give-away. I send lots of mail abroad every day, so I'll be happy to mail the ornament to the winner also abroad, no matter where you live :)

Amy on perjantaina saanut vaihdon jonka hänelle lähetin. Hän toivoi mattress pincushion -neulatyynyä Make A Wish -vaihdossa, esimerkiksi puutarha-, lintu-, aita- tai kukka-aiheella. Löysin tämän mallin Italiasta kesällä ja se näytti täydelliseltä :) Mikähän olisi kiva suomalainen sana tuolle mattress pincushionille, patjamainen neulatyynyhän se on, mutta kuulostaa vähän kankealta. Ehdotuksia?

Pistelin vain osa mallista, lisäsin toiselle puolelle Amyn nimikirjaimet ja toisella puolella vaihdoin aidan ja kukan paikkaa. Tämä oli eka mattress pincushion -tyylinen viimeistely jonka tein, sitä oli hauska pistellä!

Oi että meillä oli ihana päivä eilen! Tuula kutsui oupsilaiset kylään ja kaksi autolastillista meitä lähtikin sinne pistelemään koko päiväksi. Tuula on hurjan ihana ystävä, niin aurinkoinen ihminen :) Kiitos Tuula kaikesta kovasti ja kiitos myös muille oupsilaisille pistely- ja matkaseurasta, olette ihania kaikki!

Hauskan patjan olet tehnyt. ;)

Hauska idea tuo patja ja reunuskin näyttää ihan valkoiselta aidalta. Sinun blogista löytyy aina uusia ideoita. :)

Todella ihana matress pincushion. Tai neulapatja? Aika hauskaa, itselläni on yhtenä vaihtoehtona tehdä tuosta Strawberry Housestani matress pincushion :) Hyvä idea tuo mallin pieni muuntelu!
