A new finish and something to share.....

 First off, I went up to my LNS...Needle Orts.....yesterday and she had in this very cute set of minature accessories.  There's a magnet for holding your needle in place on your fabric, a 2 inch ruler, a hornbook and a thread holder.  All but the magnet have claw hooks on them so you can attach them to anything you like.  Well mine I have attached to a larger claw and then attached them to my scissors.  Aren't they the cutest???  
I also finished the Sweetheart Tree Mini Quaker Pincushion I was working on.  I stitched it on a natural/red Graziano Linen using a beautiful silk fiber.  I also attached some buttons to the upper right hand corner just for decoration.  If you are interested in this, check out my store.

I read about this on another blog and I thought I'd see what the interest is here.  The Sweetheart Tree design you see above would be mailed by me to someone along with a skein of floss or silk.  The person who is chosen to receive this, must have a blog and also must drop whatever she is stitching at the moment in order to stitch this design in a timely manner.  She would then put it on her blog and ask for someone to accept the pattern and a skein of floss from her.  It's kind of like a round robin and the object is to see how many people we can get to stitch this design.  Let me know if anyone is interested in this because I think it would be fun to see what someone else could come up with.
Blessings as always,
Barbara

I would like to be on your RR list if you decide to do it. Sweetheart Tree charts are some of my favorites.
Your accessories are very pretty.
