Dutch Motif Workbox Weight

1 in stock

This attractive pincushion/workbox weight is made from a vintage French linen sheet which has a rather loose and lumpy texture. I just love this stuff – I have made two cushions for Pinks Barn out of the same fabric. The little cross stitched patch that was part of a Dutch project I worked last year in gorgeous soft sampler colours. I have added some little shell buttons and three pearl-headed pins.

It measures 4 x 3.5in (10 x 9cm) and will be supplied wrapped in tissue and boxed.

The story of this little treasure

What is it about that lovely old laundry-washed feel? It takes me back to when my mother and I were living in a tiny cottage in Wales with a cold stone-built scullery. I can clearly remember washing dolls clothes using real soap and rubbing white linen on a scrubbing board!

I have talked at length about loving pincushions and, in my opinion, you can never have too many. I do not think there is anything nicer than a basket of small stitched pincushions and other bits of stitchy stuff.
