I finished the mattress pincushion tonight - thank you, Karen, for the answer on the finishing! It was what I figured would be best to do, but didn't want to reinvent the wheel if there was some other way. I will show it once it is received by its recipient. I believe it came out quite well. After that, I worked diligently on HOHRH... I don't know if the white birds I did under the two houses tonight will show well or not, though.
I want to thank Judith for the birthday gift I received today. I was so surprised to receive a package from The Silver Needle today. I was wondering what I had ordered from them. Inside was Quakers Rule Accoutrements from my wish list - and a card from Judith! Aw, thanks, dear friend, I just love it!!
Stitched on today: The Mermaid and the Sea, finished a gift, and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow
