Last week I was looking at Karen’s Handiwork, and she said “I am off now to attempt my first mattress pincushion finish…” I commented that I couldn’t wait to see her results. I thought it was kind of funny when I didn’t hear back from her when I asked, “Who’s on the mattresses?” I had been watching You’ve Got Mail (for the 20th time). Just thought, she really is off to work on it. Well, I could not believe it when I opened mail to find this wonderful mattress pincushion in person! It is my favorite design from PS, Friends. Karen’s stitching is exquisite, and the seam-work where it's put together is so lovely, too. There are even hand-made pins that are just perfect! It may take a while before I can put it to its intended use -- it'll be a work of art to admire for a while. The hand-made card is cute as can be, too. Karen, everything is beautiful, and I thank you so much, my friend.
I have really been spoiled in January! Jackie, Faye, Kathy, Karen-AZ, and Karen-SC. Thank you all for starting 2013 by making me feel so special! Stitching friends are absolutely THE best!
Mary Gibson got a couple of extra hours this week. I woke at 3:30 am and was hot, tossing and turning, so I got up and stitched until time to get ready for work. Of course by then I didn't want to go… but I did. I have high hopes for Superbowl Sunday stitching. I must be the slowest stitcher ever, but page six is almost done.
Since February is
on the way here, it’s time to do some heart Valentine
finishing; right? I’m sure there’s a
stack of them someplace in that
room! So when I got up this morning, I
decided to go ahead and finish Endless
Hearts that has been stitched since February
2012! I was thinking of adding some buttons,
but came across this rusted heart. Pooh –
it was solid… how to attach it? Then I
thought of this little drill I bought a couple of years ago, but never
used. Now there, a tiny hole to stitch
Thanks for stopping by, today and always. I appreciate your thoughts and comments!
May 2013 be filled with Happy Stitching!
