One year older ...

You wake up and you are 1 year older. The counter now shows 48 year ! (my DH says ... thats almost 50, thats what you get when your DH is 4 1/2 years younger). Its a beautiful autumn day and the leaves are blowing in the wind. This is my favorite season and I'm a real autumn person.


In the basket above you see some pincushions that I made last week while my DH was busy with the LHN ornaments. All the stitchingfabric I made "old" with coffee and bake dry in the oven.

  16. What lovely work you did on all your pinkeeps. I especially love the Spooky Hollow with the addition of the fabric on the bottom. I wouldn't be able to part with any of them though, if they were mine. Great work! :)
