Here is my next Reward of Merit pincushion! I am not sure what the linen is, but I don't think that it is what is called for in the pattern. When I kitted these projects, I ordered them from a shop and said that I was looking to have all of the Rewards of Merit pincushions kitted, and I think that sometimes the linen is not what is called for. I ordered them quite a few years ago now, and so don't have the order information. I do like the way it came out, but I don't really like the size. I wish that it was smaller, so I think that I will look at my other kits and see what the count of linen is, and maybe will change it to a smaller count.
For the finishing, I used some calico fabric I had on hand, and am really pleased with the color! I love the way the brown looks with the pink. I used a log-cabin type of quilt technique around it so that the fabric could be featured around the design.
