The Ladybug

Hey everybody! Hello new friends! So glad you joined us. I am so happy to have all of you here. :)

As you know, I recently won a fabulous giveaway Peggy was having. When the box arrived, it was wrapped in brown paper with little ladybugs stamped all over it. I knew immediately, before opening it, that I had the theme for my thank you and birthday gift to her. Peggy's birthday is on Tuesday, so I am very happy she received her gift yesterday.


I had a book checked out from our library already, Pretty Little Pincushions. I really wanted to make some bottle cap pincushions. After receiving my gift from Peggy all wrapped up in ladybugs, I ran back to that library book. I thought I had seen a ladybug pincushion, I did!


Isn't she just adorable!♥ I am pleased to say Peggy thinks so. :) This was the first bottle cap pincushion I have made. It will not be the last!


This was also the first time I made my own counting pins. What fun!! I have made more. This is addicting.

Well, keep watch my friends. I will next be posting a giveaway. ;)

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Well that is the cutest little pincushion ever and I'm not surprised Peggy loved it. Do tell how you made your own counting pins, I'm intrigued.

I would have thought you made dozens of them if you had not said it was your first! It's absolutely adorable. She is sitting happily right next to me at my stitchy spot.
Thank you so much!
