Ready For Class...

 I decided to create a simple round pincushion to enhance the 
embroidery stitches I'll be teaching later this week at Crazy Quilters.
 I even had fabric in my stash with the same flowers as the embroidered
 leaves. (I know. You're shocked right?) I didn't even plan for that!
I added a handmade cording to the seamline, leaving a loop at the
end for a charm, or even a little embroidered strawberry emery!
(I can always add one later.) I chose a thread spool for now.
I'll be teaching my students how to do the following stitches:
• satin stitch
• stem stitch
• back stitch
• French knot
• lazy daisy
• running stitch
• how to make cording
This class is part of my "Back to Basics" series: Beginner Embroidery.
I think that's enough knowledge to try to pack into a one-session class.  
Now that I've finished this model, I think I'll do a little quilting today.
See you tomorrow!

That is one of the prettiest pin-cushions I have seen. I'm sure you students will be inspired by it.
