After hours of stuffing, stitching, and poking myself NUMEROUS TIMES (now I LITERALLY know how a pincushion must feel!) I am finally done with my new MAKE DO PINCUSHIONS!!! What do you think??
They were really fun to create though I must admit the stabbing part is not my favorite thing to do! It seemed like I just kept poking myself this week and my poor fingers were really sore! Speaking of sore, it was also a bad week at the dentist! A simple filling turned into a very painful root canal.....my very first one, and hopefully, my last, and I still have to go back to finish it up on Friday, but at least all that terrible pain is gone!!! I have come to the conclusion that though I love pincushions dearly, I certainly DON'T want to be one!!!
My new pincushions will be added to my Picture Trail shortly and I hope you will stop by for a visit to see them "up close and personal!" With Mother's Day just around the corner, they might be just what you are looking for!!
And speaking of Mother's Day, I am actually going to be able to be with my mother this year!! Since we live so far away from each other (WA and NC), I don't get to visit as often as I would like to! She recently had surgery and is recuperating at home, so I am flying there next Tuesday to spend some time with her!! I would so appreciate your prayers for her continued healing and look forward to being with her and my two sisters!! My husband and daughter will miss me, but we will celebrate when I get back....you can be sure of that!!!!
Thank you all so much for your sweet comments and encouraging emails to me, and for all of you that take an interest in what I do!! It means more than you know, truly!! Also, a big WELCOME to all of you who are new to my blog!! Thank you for joining!!
May each of you have a lovely week, filled with bright sunshine, gentle breezes and warm hugs~~
