new stash ...

Designed by Sandra Sullivan
You just never know what you'll spot at the LNS.    Yesterday, at House of Stitches, among many beautifully stitched shop models -- I saw a stitched pincushion from this pattern.    It caught my eye - and, the rest is history.   Into my hand jumped the pattern, and I switched out the fiber a bit (prefer the Weeks Baked Apple over the Crescent Used Brick - perhaps it is just the current dye lot).    What fun to search thru the bin of fabric cuts to find the "just right" colors.   I found a 30 ct Lt Espresso, 30 ct French Vanilla, and 29ct Glenshee which will work.   Never mind there are pre-made pincusions you can use!!!  Thx GF (yes, you know who you are) for the GC.

Once stitched, should complement my other HE pieces.
