Token of Friendship - Rose Pincushion & Egg Candle

Hi, it's been a while since I finished to make something. It's small though, I'm satisfied with it.
I wanted to stitch and make something for my new friend A. in return as she gave me Birthday present.
I heard that she doesn't do sewing etc..., though I made a pincushion with rose design.
I added lots of lavender in it, and stitched on 40ct linen with DMC#310.
Unfortunately when I took these photos, my camera had many of Sweetie's finger prints on the lens, so the photos are not clear at all, though...
But I'm now happy that I found why the camera had been something wrong.

And I added velveteen lace ribbon around the wooden cup, isn't it nice?!
I have the same wooden cup and want to make the same one in the near future.

And also I made and added someself made egg candle and presented to A., too.
It's very easy to make, and it's so lovely!
If you would like to know how to make it, I would take photos of how to make, later!
It makes me so warm while it's lighting.
Here is the photo that the candle is lighting, photo below!

Recently when I pick up Sweetie, Sweetie doesn't want to come home soon, so I have to wait more than an hour at the Preschool.
But it's so nice to have mama friends! So while kids are playing, we are chatting a lot!

Here are some photos of my mini-roses that I bought at first sight love!
All my potted mini-roses wothered and died before, so this time I care of them very much, hope they last long!

Thanks for your visit, and take care!

Happy Stitching!

Linen : 40ct Witchelt (Sand dune)
Thread : DMC

I love the rose pincushion and the egg candles too. I've not seen these either -they remind me of my eggling plant though!
Hugs to you and Sweetie!

Cindy said...

Hi Yuko!

Your stitching is very beautiful, as always :)

Love the egg candle! How do you get it to stand upright?

It's good that Sweetie is enjoying school and doesn't want to leave as soon as the ending bell rings. It's also good that you are able to meet new friends because of that :)

Nina said...

Dear Yuko,

a rose is a rose is a rose...your oincushion is so lovely indeed!
The egg candle is a funny idea, is it selfmade?
In Germany you can buy them in Easter time.

Have a wonderful weekend

The egg candles are so unique! I haven't met with this idea before. Will it not break after a while because of the heat?

I regularly buy mini roses too, and they survive only, if I plant it to the garden. But if they stay in the pot, they will soon finished :( I hope you find the secret how to keep the alive! :)

Hi Yuko, have not visited you for several month and have enjoyed catching up with you and Sweetie.

The mini roses are lovely and how fun that you are meeting other Mothers. It sounds like Sweetie is enjoying school.

Love the stitching that you have done and what you have recieved.

Will drop in again soon.

Happy stitching -- Roberta

You always have the most beautiful pictures (even with fingerprints) and the most beautiful finishes. Both of these are wonderful.
