PINCUSHIONS! Using Carrie Nelson’s book Pin Pals, she decided to try making the hardest one in the book – p. 72 Spokes, my favorite one in the whole book!
She was able to show me the back before she layered it.
Those little tiny seams are trimmed after sewing.
Now for the padded circle to close the top.
And then filled and closed. Don’t you just love it?
Roy made her a homemade funnel – anyone could make one of these and it’s not so skinny making it easier to use.
Connie and I both bought this book and then Martingale sent each of us a book for Valentine’s Day. Hmmmm…. what should we do with the two extra books? We’ll give them away to two of our lucky blog readers! That’s what we’ll do! When you enter a comment and click on an ad we will tally up all the comments and ask Reed to pick two winning numbers. On Monday I’ll announce the winners here on the blog.
Connie sent me a new picture of sweet Betty in a puppy sit by the fireplace. Finally – a great picture of a black dog!
As of today we are retiring Frosty and I Love You. If your postmark is February 16 or earlier, we will put them in the mail. If the postmark is February 17 and later, you’re too late. Tomorrow I’ll show you the next offerings. Any comments today and tomorrow will qualify in the drawing for the two pincushion books.
Book Club – I let it go this month because I thought you were too busy working on Bullseye but I’ve gotten several titles so if you’d like to list your February books as your comment, I’ll collect them.
Beyond The Battlefield is still available for $31.00 to which includes shipping. I emailed Martingale on Friday because the books still had not arrived. And sure enough UPS had some problems keeping on a schedule due to weather. Hopefully they will arrive here Monday or Tuesday.
This is where I was yesterday with Becky – Concord Care monthly birthday party.
Tonight on 48 Hours our cousin Lynne Westafer from CA will be featured as part of the story about the Trader Joe’s shooting last summer. Just FYI.
I’m going to hold my breath and hit PUBLISH. Tomorrow I’ll introduce the new patterns.
I haven’t read all the supportive comments after my rant last night but thank you, all of you, for your concern!
