A Pair of Pears

I really did enjoy stitching the cute little alphabet sampler . . . so much so, that I just had to chart up and stitch a numbers sampler to match!

I've used another variegated thread, this time a Cosmo "Seasons" thread. I really love the brown, blue, green combination of this one.

And the felted woven wool is just a pleasure to work with. If you haven't worked with this before, and you get the chance, you really should - it's quick and easy . . . and it looks great. In fact, I think it looks so good, you could easily make up a batch of these pears in just the wool, front and back.

Filled with the silica sand, these pears are nice and heavy. Great for pincushions or paperweights. Or just looking pretty!
