My Pinpillow Basket

Good morning everybody! It is a cloudy, drizzly kinda day today. Not the best for picture taking, but these are what I have to share with you.

one over two on 36ct tea stained linen


These two are with the flash. The two pinkish, purplish, brownish counting pins are made by me. The three others were made by Nataly, a gift for me. This is the freebie pattern from my last post. It is found on Nuestras Miniaturas. I knew I wanted her in this sweet, little basket. I found the ruffle and backing fabric at JoAnn. It goes very well with it.



I am pretty pleased with it. =)

When I was in JoAnn I found out that they will be moving. They are taking over one half of an empty grocery store in a strip mall. The other half will be Big Lots. I had even joked last year when the grocery store built a new, bigger store and left that one behind, that this should be a new, bigger JoAnn. We have one of the old, tiny ones. Glad to have one. I am just sad they aren't going to be one of the Super stores and use the whole space. This location is still very close to me. It will not be done til June they say.

So I am still stitching on the first of three Christmas ornaments for the kids during the day. When they are home I am stitching on my mother's angel ornament. They have not accidentally seen any ornaments yet over the years. ;)

Thank you for stopping by today. I would love to hear from you and know you were here.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

A beautiful finish! And I love the counting pins, yours and Nataly's. Good for you for keeping those ornies a secret from your kids! You're lucky to have a Joann's btw. All of ours closed. :(

Such a lovely finish, Vickie! It looks just perfect with the ruffle and little basket...

Glad your JoAnn's isn't disappearing--so many of them seem to be these days. I have two within 15 minutes of me so I'm hoping they both stick around :)
