Olympic Finish

I'm giving myself a "Gold Medal" for this one. I had finished the stitching several weeks ago but was a little intimidated by the finishing. So last night watching the USA get the gold in Swimming and Gymnastics I said I can do it too and here is my results.....
"A Patchwork Garden Pincushion Ball"
by Twisted Oaks Designs
stitched on 6 different colors of 28 count Cashel Linen
with Dinky Dye Silk
Today I've pulled out my "12 Days of Christmas" by Hinzeit project and hope to make some good progress on it since it only has 4 colors.
Until next time.....Happy Stitching

THe pinball is beautiful! I love Twisted Oak Designs because much of their patterns is for "useful" items.
