Flame Stitch Pincushion Needlework Nibble

This project was inspired by the pincushion in the Martha Edlin casket using a different pattern but a similar color scheme.  A small piece, 2" x 2.5", it is worked on 24-count Montrose Linen with Soie Paris threads.  A perfect summer project as it requires very little counting and is large scale, it can be done on the beach!   

Since the threads are from the Blue and Red Soie Paris collections in the Cabinet of Curiosities Kit, the shop offers both kits with and without the embroidery silks, for those who have them in their stash.  

I am now just able to sell the silk velvet backs.  Those who have Montrose Linen for their casket or a piece of linen at a close count, the velvet will make a lovely backing!
