So I got my Stitch It Kit (which I absolutely love!) and decided to embroider the coffee cup just as a practice piece on some sewing muslin. Turns out I actually liked my cup and wanted to use it for something, and so the biggest pin cushion ever was born. I made a 5x5x5 cube with embroidery on each side. Crazy? Perhaps. Practical and wicked fun to make? Definately. Thanks Ms. Hart for showing me the way! Grin Now for the cushion:

Aww, thanks everybody!  Smiley

To answer spaz_muse's question, I mostly used the split stitch, but I backstitched things like the cup's decoration and the black part of the heel. I tried the stem stitch for the coffee's steam, but it didn't come out like the diagram in the book  Tongue I'll have to try that again sometime  Cheesy

It's good to do stuff a little differently - that's usually how I get my best stuff...'happy accidents' as it were!  Grin

How neato! You know, if you had a bell inside it, would be a good baby toy! If you don't mind them gnawing on your needlework that is...
