A long time ago, Anne from The Goode Huswife published wonderful charts. I can really hit myself for not buying more of them and keeping more of them. In the early days of the shop I could still get them from our distributor, I wish I had ordered more for myself. Anne retired from designing a couple of years ago and fortunately, decided last year to pick it up again.
In my stash I have several of her older charts and this particular one is one that has always been on my list of to stitch items. It’s fairly simple, but I love the color combination. As it is solidly stitched, it will take a while to get it done, but that doesn’t matter.
Nine Patch Pincushion – The Goode Huswife
Fabric: 40ct Cloud Brown linen
Threads: DMC as charted
I want to finish this into a sweet little pincushion and might stitch one or two of the center patches for a scissor fob. It’ll be a while though, there are approximately 3025 stitches as you have to stitch the whole background, but that’s ok. It’s very relaxing to stitch. Not too much counting, once you have done the black, the rest is easier. Next picture will be a bit bigger, promised.
