A Christmas Ornie and a pin cushion.

I have been busy sewing again and this little pin cushion was very fiddly but I love the way it turned out. It came from the book I showed last month.. lots more to sew from it, it cost a lot but was worth it.

These hexagons were especially fiddly to sew as they were so small..
And this is my latest Christmas Ornie.
A freebee but I can't remember where I got it from. Stitched on 28c evenweave with DMC threads.
I made it up into this little cushion with some extra fabrics because it was rather small.
I really like it... only three more ornies to go for Christmas! It's that time already to make my christmas cakes!
Happy Days All

I can only imagine how fiddly the hexagons were. Yikes.

Your pincushion is so sweet and the seasonal stitch is great too.
It comes from Log Cabin Needlework at this blog:
I stitched it myself a while back!
