Anniversaries of the Heart and Cup cake.

Voila! I have finished another one of my Blackbird Anniversaries of the Heart.
This one has my eldest son's date of birth and his initials.
 
 
I am very pleased with it especially as some of the floss wasn't the set colours but I just matched up the colours.. this because I have a lot of Cresent Colours and Weeks Dye Works that I bought ages ago.
So I now have all three sons completed and next one will be with my daughter's name and dates.
I am doing these in family groups, so this one will be my four children.
 
And this is my cup cake pin cushion. I used some pretty pink colours and bows.
I have seen them with beads dangling but I thought enough is enough!
 
 
I finished it off with a Suffolk puff  ( yoyo ) and a pearly button.
 
It was a very pleasent afternoon sewing.
Hope you too have had enjoyment from some nice things to make.
My next project is going to be some crochet work.

Hi Chris,
Love the stitching! The pearl-colored border on the left blends in with the fabric a little on the pic - but I am sure it looks perfect "live."
Thank you for sharing, and have a good week!

Hi Chris, We always have something waiting on us. I keep trying to finish one project at a time. I had a very busy weekend with family so enjoyable. Even fit seeing hubby and took him pictures of the boys riding their horses. I just stopped by to see what you were working on and how you were doing. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.
