I was thinking smaller flowers spaced evenly around the cuff. Maybe 4 of them?

Here are some pincushions I've made recently.

Mill Hill Beads beaded Daisy pincushion with magnet.  This was created from a kit and is not an original design.


And a couple more (Tulip and Pansy) from the same Mill Hill collection.  (Finished April 2009)


This biscornu, however, is an orginal design and was part of a set I made for a stitching-buddy.  Coffee and stitching are two of her favorite things (next to her hubby and her cats).

I'd love to do another one of these but I really can't organize this month. If someone else does I'd be happy to help or just participate. Smiley

Thanks!  Yes, biscornu's are fun to make.  They could be made with regular fabric on a sewing machine if the fabric was carefully cut and marked.  Two squares, turn one 90 degrees and commence to sewing. Wink  Be sure to stop after the 7th seam so you can stuff it and hand close it.

Thanks Smiley  The beaded one was fun.  Wish I could take credit for the design but t'weren't mine.  Though now I know how easy it is to do beaded fringe.   Gotta love dem kits!

I may be interested in the swap.  I'll leave word over there if I decide to give it a go.
