Poor robin's pin cushion

Project Description

What was your source for this embroidery project? Other Tell us more about what inspired you. This came in a kit. What are you most proud of? I love how the whole thing came together. The instructions were to stitch with one thread over 32 count linen, which is finer work than I normally do. And I finished the pillow part! With cross-stitch, finishing can be a challenge. It took just as long to do the pillow as it did the front. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just dive in! I got this kit from shepherd's bush, in Ogden Utah.
