This pin cushion is crochet in variegated thread with glass beads on the top.
This one was called African flower pattern, I like how the black brings out the shape of the petals.
I thought I would have a change of style with this one and embroider it instead of crochet.
I have called this my granny square pin cushion.
This is an all double crochet pin cushion with an added flower and beads.
I have added a couple of pictures of my garden, all the plants have now filled out and I am just waiting for my Astilbi to plume and the delphiniums to flower. I don't know if you can see but the wind burnt all the leaves on my red acer tree and it is now looking very sad.
In this last picture there is a small pond with four fish in it, you can't see it very well but it is where the lamp is under the green acer tree.
