When I was at my LNS after she came back from market, I spied this little pattern over in a corner of the table and what caught my eye was the red.....of course. Upon closer look, it turned out to be this adorable little red cardinal sitting on a spool of thread. It was love at first sight and it came home with me. Because it was designed by Just Another Button Co., there were 4 heart buttons to add to the finished piece and a little black button for his eye. I stitched it on 30ct. Creek Bed Brown linen with DMC floss and finished it into one of my little pillows.
I received in the mail yesterday, a piece of linen I purchased from Nina and she was very gracious and sent me two samples of her beautiful hand dyed cotton floss. She must know my colors because they are pinks and greens.....lovely indeed!!! I have a little Jardin Prive design that calls for these two colors and I'm using them to stitch it up. It will make a beautiful little pin cushion and I should have it finished this week.
I hope all of you are enjoying your weekend and getting in alot of stitchie time.
Blessings as always,
