pin cushion collection

Hello to all my blogging friends, I have lots of pictures to show you today, I have made a few pin cushions for the craft fair, some crochet and some embroidered. I have got three more to finish and then I am not making any more, I think that I will have enough things to take with me, and you never know they may not sell and I will end up bringing them all home again.

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.
