RAK from Rachael

Look what the postie just brought! Rachael RAK'd me with the most darling ladybug pincushion ever! Isn't this sweet? This is stitched on white plainweave with a pretty red fabric for the back. Not sure how well it shows but it is tufted in the center. This is too cute! I love ladybugs; I think they call them ladybirds in the UK...I understand Rachael stitched this on her recent holiday to Menorca. From the postcard she included it looks like a lovely area to vacation in.
Thank you, sweet Rachael...I love this!!!

Glad you liked it!!

Love the finish on this one! (I used to have a boss that was afraid of ladybugs - if the guys wanted to make her jump they'd tell her a ladybug was on her shoulder) :)

Jo said...

yup, they're ladybirds (which is a prettier name, I think, but ladybug does make more sense...)

It's a lovely gift, enjoy it

Such a beautiful gift, i too have been lucky enough to be RAK'd by Rachael recently. Enojy your gift.

Annie said...

That's very cute. I'm kind of tired of biscornus so I'm glad to see a more traditional finish.

I get lots of ladybugs in my apartment at certain times of the year and frankly, I'd prefer to see them on pincushions only, not in real life!
