Just a Quickie...

...quick post because I'm watching the Grammy Awards!

It's been a productive weekend. Finished an exchange which you'll see a picture of in a week or so; once it is received. Assembled several pincushions using my mom's tatting (many of these are gifts too), and stitched and finished a small from that basket of smalls that I am determined to conquer this year!

I don't know why it's taken me so long to stitch and finish this wee little pincushion! It's "Ole Pincushion" from Shakespeare's Peddler. It's mounted inside an old zinc jar lid. Quick, easy, finished! I opted not to put trim around the design.

And...pincushions..I just love these bright colors! My mom did the tatting, and now that her arm is feeling better, she's been tatting more regularly.



Well, gotta run...back to the Grammy's!

Your pincushion is lovely Cathy! Your mother's tatting is so very colourful. Very cheerful to look at! I don't know of anyone around here who does this needlework. Does your mom sell any of her work?
