Kewl Kiwi

Ever since I saw the donut pincushions at Sewdorky (and now they have giant teeth-oh my) I've been meaning to make one or two. Santa brought me one for Christmas so I didn't need to stitch one but when Julie of BoogaJ started the pincushion challenge, I couldn't resist. The first theme was fruit. I immediately thought I'd like to make a kiwi and then I thought maybe a watermelon slice. I waited until the very last minute to stitch so I only had time for the kiwi. Considering this is my first felt pincushion (I've made a cross stitch / linen one) I'm fairly happy with it.

Julie is posting gallery photos today, go on and take a look. I wonder what June's theme will be???

I was wondering why I hadn't seen a kiwi pincushion yet - very cool!

I saw your comment re: pink chibi over at Sheep in the City. I was at a local store here in Minneapolis (Needlework Unlimited) last week, and they had one of the pink chibis for sale, regular old chibi price - you might call and see if it's still available. Good luck!

I like it, you did a great job on the stitching. Did you use beads or french knots for the black seeds?
