Happy Birthday Carin! I love your basket of pincushions, they're all so lovely. I particularly like the primitive stitching you did on the Spooky Hollow one, I'm filing that idea away for future use ;)

Happy Birthday to you! Hope you have had a wonderful day! I will 54 in a few days and on some days I feel every bit of it! Thankfully some days I feel young!

Your stitching is beautiful as always. You must have a project in your hands at all moments. Thanks for showing us your little bear! She is a beauty.

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! :)
