Quaker Quarterly Exchange 7 (QQX7) - Theme: Beach and Sea










This is the front view This is the back view

This is my 6th participation (as I missed the premiere exchange themed: Valentines) in this exchange and the theme is beach and sea. We have agreed on sand colour and anything of blue and green to depicts the sea.

I have decided to make a pincushion for this round and put some embellishment for the finishing. This is what it looks like after is has been completed and mailed to my dear partner Becky de Vries-Wong (I am sorry if I get the spelling wrong). It is a tufted square pincushion on 36ct unevenweave linen and floss that I dyed my own.

I think I should put this picture too....should give the credit to my models for modelling with the quaker pincushion ........he he he


This is my #3 daughter and #2 son admiring mummy's work....LOL!

Hi Becky and Nicki

Thank you for your kind compliments. I enjoyed doing the cushion although I had a tough time managing those beads which at the same time fighting for it with my little girl...hehehehe
