First Finish of 2012

Pincushion Thread Catcher. With many thanks to Karen for her Tutorial which can be found on her website:

 N.B. If you're going to make this & are putting in  boning, use a zipper foot on your machine. It will stitch up neater.

 I had a bag of sheep wool clippings given to me that I washed & used to stuff the pincushion. I'm very pleased with the result.
Next project will be a sewing caddy that will attach to my swivel sewing chair. I'll be stitching this one from my own pattern that I've yet to draw out!
