Time got away from me yesterday but my hubby
pulled a name this morning for the giveaway
and the winner is...
I just love all of the 'cyber' stitcher friends
I have made over the last five years.
Thanks to all who enter the giveaway.

Charlene (Needle in Hand) is another stitching
friend that I met because of our blogs although
she doesn't live too far away. She has gifted
me with some wonderful stitching
gifts over the years and I decided it was
time to repay the favor.
Prairie Schooler "Friendship..." from More Friends
stitched on 25ct ivory evenweave over 1
I wanted to stitch one of the PS "More Friends"
designs and decided this was the one. I thought
a pincushion would a useful gift so I
stitched it over 1 on 25ct evenweave to make
it just the right size. I have never had a stitched
piece speak to me like this one but it was
determined to become a mattress pincushion.
Pearl cotton was perfect for it all coming together.
Although I have never done this type of finish, I
finally gave in and made my first.
Needless to say, I learned a lot and found some
wonderful tutorials after I finished mine.....
why didn't I think to Google first????
Simple flower finish for the back.
I am happy Charlene likes it and happier I
could share something stitchy for her!

I have been busy this week stitching some "pears"
from Samplers and Santas to add to my paper
pears. Now I just have to do the finishing...
anxious to see how this goes.
As always....thanks for visiting!
