Things Don't Always Go Right The First Time.....

Sometimes things just don't work out the way you planned.  I've wanted to make a "Sherlock" pincushion for a while (it is one of my favorite tv shows of all time)  and I spent time researching what his front door looked like with the classic 221B and brass door knocker.  I did drawings.  I carefully cut out felt and stitched the numbers.  When I was done I realized that the numbers and door knocker were too low down on the pincushion so it looked unbalanced.  Grrr.....  I unpicked it and started again!

This pincushion top has too much space at the top, of course I didn't realize until I'd stitched the whole thing together ready for stuffing!

Around the sideband I've embroidered "SHER LOCKED".  This is a reference to the episode with Irene Adler, "A Scandal In Belgravia".  Irene's phone is password protected.....

My second attempt at representing the door was much better balanced!  Happy dance!
