Prairie Schooler Exchange for Paula

I heard from Paula today that my HoE Prairie Schooler Exchange for her has arrived safely:

Four Seasons Mattress Pincushion

Prairie Schooler

32 ct Clay Belfast Linen, DMC Floss


I am so glad that Paula likes her exchange, and am honored to have sent her her first ever mattress pincushion. I am also so pleased she likes my design choice, as well as all the little extra goodies I chose for her ;-) Enjoy Paula - it was such a pleasure to stitch for you!

Stitched on today: Finished SBEBB Think Pink Exchange

I love the look of those mattress pin cushions and really should try one myself. It seems so much work: all the backstitching and the whipstitching... Yours looks absolutely gorgeous, Carol!

What a beautiful design and a gorgeous finish! I'm very much behind in commenting, but I've been reading your blog every morning when I wake up. It's one of the first things I do when I turn the computer on. If I'm very early you haven't yet updated, but usually you have and I know I've said that before but I think it's so nice :)

I hope you've had a lovely weekend, have a happy Sunday and a good start for the new week!
