Designing and Creating

I'm home today, watching Quahog. He's  recovering from his surgery so while sitting here I decided to try to design a new pincushion. This is what I came up with.  I got the top done but somewhere between  making the top and putting it together the whole plan changed.

Before I knew it, I was cutting out more flowers, adding stems and working on either a runner or a pillow.

Here's a close up of one of the flowers. The center will have a button in it - like the pincushion does.

This is not the best photo for color but this is the fabric that I want as my borders. If you could see it really close up you'd see that the gold of the applique background is in the print. I think when it's done it'll have an old feel to it. I do plan on adding some embroidery vines  and who knows what else.  For now this is a start.
