Heirloom Heart

This was a project at last week's Machine Embroidery group at Bob's Bernina. The project was really an heirloom pincushion stitched in white on white with a white ribbon. The design uses a wing needle and gives that heirloom look. It was really striking. As usual, I modified the design a bit by using red thread on a muslin background. On the back piece I stitched a large buttonhole using my embroidery module, layered the two pieces and now I have a candy holder for Valentine's Day.
