Embroidered Pincushion and Tag Book [p.10]

A friend had a clearout and among the items was some wool fabric which I gladly took off her hands. The fabric was part of a wool scarf which she had dyed for a project and never used. It had been sitting on my work table for quite a few weeks, I'd had a few ideas but never got on with it. I'm enjoying doing hand embroidery at the moment and decided to make a pincushion leaving the tassles of the scarf as part of the design.

Tag Book - this page is the inside of a recycled envelope, and has a vintage postcard, a printed postcard which I did, and parts from a programme. The tag is an image of a sampler from a magazine. The original envelope is shown below.
