Picture this. A needlepoint pin cushion bristling with ball head pins is sitting on a desk. A black cat, still almost a kitten, jumps up next to the pincushion. He takes one pin delicately by the head and pulls it out. Immediately he drops it onto the cushion and takes another one.
The cat is mine, Darcy, the pincushion is today’s free project and this really happened. He didn’t swallow any pins, we chased him off, and the pincushion is sitting in a drawer.
The project is really simple and uses one stitch, Scotch. By varying the direction of the stitch and the colors, you can make this overall pattern. To make the design bigger most easly, just expand the size of the Scotch Stitches.
Stitch it using two colors of Watercolours on 18 mesh canvas. I used two shades of blue, one medium and one light, but it will work in any color combination.
