Oriental Fan pin cushion
I really enjoyed stitching this little fan, it only took me a couple of days. The design is from a little book that came with The World of Cross Stitching, Joan Elliot's Oriental Collection.
It's stitched on what was supposed to be 28ct Jobelan, but it's actually 32ct.
The pattern called for Anchor Reflecta, but I did not have any, and Anchor threads are pretty hard to come by here, so I used some Madeira metallic thread instead. I have to say, the Madeira metallics are the easiest to use, from what I've worked with.
I backed it with the lovely fabric I got from Bekca.
I've put this up on Etsy, because I can't keep all the little things I keep stitching!
