Using an old butterfly pin cushion as my inspiration, I hand stitched MY impression in early walnut dyed muslin with a faded blue plaid homespun back. 4 different early blue calicoes are stitched to the tucked quadrants of the butterfly. A homespun scrap is the butterfly's antennae and early black glass beads are the eyes. A small array of early blue fabrics are pinned to the butterfly with an 1800's cobalt blue glass berry pin. "FORGET ME NOT" is cross stitched in blue. "X" stitches are done on the outside of the butterfly pin cushion. Old pins, early glass berry pins and sewing needles are added. Butterfly measures 7" wide and is 6" tall.
SIGNED, DATED and ONE OF A KIND!!!
