Isn't this just the most adorable pin cushion. I know it has been over 7 months since last I posted here, but I have been enjoying the beautiful french blogs and thought it only fair that I put something here to share.
This pin cushion is made from the corner scraps of a large round one that has these same fabrics. It is finished except for being stuffed and tufted so it shall be here another day!

I am working on my projects for Europe....am 25% complete with Treasures of Comfort and 5% complete on Briar Rose....maybe pictures next week.
Travel between Chicago and Philadelphia have become routine! I hope to join an EGA in Philadelphia some time this summer.....
Oh, and who would have thought I would find myself a White Sox fan. For that matter, who would have though I would find myself a baseball fan. The scratching and spitting have never been attractive and yet, I find, there may be other things of interest that happen on the field. And off!
I will try to be back sooner than later! Miss you all.

Jackie has offered to chart something that will add a rememberance of out trip to England. I thought of putting something here but the beautiful painted button that actually is to be in the center is something I can not leave out.
Someone who knows Thistlewood might notice that the inside of the leaves are not the charted tent stitch.....In an effort to retain my sight, I made them a padded satin stitch. I love the sheen of the silk with this stitch....Jackie will not mind, she is very good about things like this .... generous of spirit!
Coco is in Pennsylvania visiting her sister.....I miss her more than I imagined. It does not take long for the little buggers to become part of your life.....
Chicago is bracing itself for "weather".....There is a heavy dusting of snow outside my window this morning and they are promising more by the end of the day.....I am concerned I will not get to Des Moine tomorrow. Very early flight and they may not have things cleaned up.....What will be, will be.

This Stocking is part of a Blackbird - Loose Feathers that had an exchange. This pattern is from a spring book that is in other colors but I thought it lended itself to a Red and Green theme.
