A Special pin-mattress for a Stitcher Friend.

It's been some time since I last post any updates on my stitchwork as I was busy with wedding plannings and creating wedding montage for a relative. Now that the wedding event is over, I can now get to continue with my KIV stitch work.

This special pin mattress is specially make for Cindy, a good friend and a zealous stitcher. I chose a light blue lugana fabric and DMC 930 floss for this one-over-one stitchwork.

The front design is a freebie chart from a french website. It's a design of an angel holding a basket of flowers. You can find a vast collection of free and beautiful charts from this site ECHEVETTE.

For the back, I chose a portion of the chart of a small needlebook from Accessoires Quaker AMAP. The full design can be viewed at A Mon Ami Pierre. A long and thin white ribbon with blue spots was then sewn and wrapped around the sides of the mattress. I used a long ribbon so that the pin mattress can be hang for display. Round blue pins are then placed around the sides of the mattress. And I finished it off with a sheer golden ribbon at the top of the pin mattress.

A big thank you to Cindy for these photos. :-)
