Two Patterns to a Good Home and Pincushion Progress

While going through my stash a few days ago, I ran across two patterns from Hinzeit, complete with charms. I know I will never stitch them. They are a quick stitch. I would like to send them to someone(s) who would like to make them up.

The first one is "Mini Block Nurse".  I had always intended to make this for my mother.  (I tried to rotate the picture, but for some reason it won't behave).
The second is also from Hinzeit - again, complete with charms.

If you are interested in one - or both - please contact me.

This week I started to participate in a wonderful Tudor Tuesday SAL group on FB.  I'm starting with a Medieval pin cushion.  I got the kit eight years ago while at Winchester.  Here's my progress so far.

If you haven't already commented on the previous post and would like to be part of a Swapaway, you have until October 1st to sign up.

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~

  2. I love the Horses one, my Sister in Law comes to mind for a gift.

  3. Either of these patterns would be lovely. The nurse one I would stitch for my pen pal and the horse one I my daughter would love. Thankyou for this chance.Happy Stitching.

  4. Love your medieval pin cushion start... Cannot wait to see it finished :)
    Your little stitch things look really different, never seen anything quite like them... It took me a moment actually working out what they say! Then I realized the letters are staggered! Doh!
    They are lovely, I will pass if that is ok... I am sure there are more worthy people that really want them :). But they were fun to look at :)
    Happy stitching
    Smiles :)

  5. Progress on the pin cushion looks very nice, look forward to seeing the final results.

  13. Hello Kim,

    Love the Medieval stitching you are working on. I would love to be in the draw for the Horse cross stitch, my niece loves horses and owns two of them. Have a lovely weekend.

    Happy days.
