Hello!  I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend and was able to get some much needed stitching done.  Mine was eventful to say the least.
First off, on Saturday, DH, Peyton, John and myself went and did some shopping.  John was having a birthday and since he'll be graduating college this June, he asked for a briefcase as his gift.  We were able to find exactly what he wanted at Office Max so that was done.  While at Best Buy, Peyton started acting a little strange and I kept asking her what was wrong.  Congratulate me.....I'm going to be a Great Grandmother come October.  I was shocked but am happy for them both.  She was terrified to tell us for fear of us not approving.  She still has some college to finish but she insists she will do it.  Needless to say, I've already started knitting a baby blanket.  :o)
My sweet friend Rhonda had stitched a pincushion design and sent it to me to do the finishing.  Here is a picture of the finished doll pincushion.  Isn't it an adorable design!  I've never seen this before but I would love to find one.  If anyone is interested it was put out by Sewing Chest Designs, PO Box 2204, Dearborn, Michigan 48123
I hope wherever you are you're finally getting some warmer temps.  We've started to get some nice warm days down here and it feels nice.
Blessings for a perfect day,
Barbara

Congratulations to you!

The doll is wonderful. There is a lovely one featured in Sampler & Antique needlework, Summer 2014, vol 20 #2. Also Needle in a Haystack has been kitting up all the supplies for that version.
