Done: Flower Pincushion

So I got a new magazine called Cross Stitcher and there was materials in there to make a "vintage" pin cushion. I am not the best hand sewer anymore (I used to take sewing lessons but they were more for using a sewing machine). So... please forgive the hand sewing on this but I think the cross-stitch came out nice enough! Took me two days to complete.

Here is the pincushion in all its glory. It has a purple felt bottom.

Close ups of the flowers.
