Instruction Sheets for Hydrangea and Geraniums, and the Rose

Lets try this. I hope it helps you while Google decides to undo the blocking of my PDF files.
Here are the instruction sheets in JPEG form. The size may be off, but if you freehand your design, it should allow you to continue with your stitching.
If you print them off in a standard 8 1/2" by 11", the size should be right.
Have fun!

Here are a few more variations you may try in one of your sections. I do not have a template for you. I think it may be fun to sue these as inspiration when designing new designs for your pincushion.

How about sweet peas and a hummingbird? The sweet peas are lazy daisy stitches.

I am not sure I like how I created this queen annes lace, but I love the addition of a little butterfly. I used mainly straight stitches to create the flower.

Here is the poppy flower. It is made with small straight stitches.

Finally, I am showing you my version of hollyhocks. I used a blanket stitch in a circle to create the flowers. You can find the blanket or button hole stitch (same stitch, different name) on my blog on my stitch tutorial page. Mary Corbet's Needle N Thread will walk you through just about any stitch in video form. Find them here.

Good luck. I'll keep working on getting those PDF instructions to you. Hopefully that will happen soon.

I want to wish you all a Very Happy and Creative New Year!
I hope it brings you many new projects and ideas. Lets all create a wonderful new year!

Lovely. Thank you. I have made quite a few of your pincushions. The one I have left is made in denim and rather boring - it calls out for some embroidered flowers!
