Pincushion swap - A is for Apple

I'm participating in the pincushion swap that Ellie over at Petalplum is organising.  This is my first one, made from 'la fleur du lin Herb' by Lecien

Apple Pincusion

It's from the tutorial and pattern over at UK lass in US.  I'm really quite pleased with it but wonder if it needs a bit more 'oomph' or something.  You know, a bit of a jzujz (oh you know the term, the one from that program where the gay guys would make over some reluctant straight guy).

Apple Pincusion detail

On the other hand, it's exactly what I meant it to look like so perhaps I just need to trust my judgement!

ETA: I added another leaf and am now quite content.


  1. Gorgeous! Stunning! Loving your apple pin cushion muchly.

  2. this is great - a lovely shape for a pin cushion.

  3. It looks very cute!

  4. Oh I just love this! Please please don't change it (well, apart from the extra leaf) because it's just stunning the way it is!

  5. Oh I did change it Holly, I'm sorry! I put beads on it. I couldn't help
    myself. :) And I went and got that Tiny World pattern, I couldn't not do it,
    it was too cute!
