Pincushion for Paula

Hello dear friends!  I seem to have lost a bit of blogging mojo.  Maybe because it's that time of year when my schedule is getting more hectic.  Or maybe it's a case of spring fever :)  Whichever it is, it needs to go away so I can show you what I've been up to!  And please accept my sincere apologies for my lack of comments...I've been skimming through my reader and drooling over all your lovely creations and wonderful new stash :)

Paula C let me know earlier in the week that she received the PinCushion Exchange I stitched for her.  It was truly a joy to stitch for you Paula!!!


Ptits coeurs Ciseaux
by Isabelle Haccourt Vautier
fabric:  28ct "staci-dyed" evenweave
fiber:  DMC 310
black czech glass seed beads
filled with crushed walnut shells




I had stitched this before my blogging days for myself and it appears in some of my photos.  And I've had many questions about it.  Well, I couldn't exactly remember the pattern and such and actually didn't think I had the pattern anymore.  So I was pleasantly surprised to find it amongst some other charts I was organizing :)  'Tis good to organize, lol!!!

Well my lovelies, that's all for me today.  I really appreciate your continued visits and comments, they really warm my heart :)  I have other things to show you, so I hope to be back soon.  Have a Happy Weekend!

Oh, my God! I think I just died from envious admiration! Staci you always outdo yourself!! I just might have to steal this idea! I hope you agree that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and all that! :D

I've not had much blogging mojo, either...and it's too bad 'cause I actually have some stitching to talk about for once!!
