I have been working on a LHN piece for the last couple of weeks and I have always planned on finishing it as a mattress pincushion. However now I need to make a decision and any thoughts would be more than welcome.
I also have to be cryptic because it may well end up as a gift for someone who reads the blog. I keep umming and arrghing about this as maybe it would be unwelcome. This isn't a reflection on them, more on my shyness as I can't imagine why anyone would want something from me.
I've decided to not use any of the fabric I brought for backing it, instead I'm going to use the linen for all of it so I need to create a pattern/border for the sides which isn't really a problem.
However what I do with the back is.
I could easily create something simple for the back and make up the pincushion or I could be patient, order another LHN pattern for the back, which will compliment the one on the front. I'm tempted to wait as with both LHN designs it would reflect the possible recipients two hobbies well.
What do you think?
