Finishes, a gift and giveaway update

Hello Everyone,

Just a few quick stitches to share. Peppermint by LHN. As you can see from the picture, I still have to put on the button. I figure I'll do that after I finish it. This makes #3 of the LHN ornaments done. Since I have all of the ornaments since 2010, I am just skipping around and stitching whatever. I'd like to have a bunch done by Christmas to enjoy with my Christmas decorations. Next up is Blessed which is the most recent one. I love this one and can't wait to see it finished.

This little beauty is a freebie by the Primitve Hare. Made for an upcoming birthday which I can't say in case she looks at this post. I think I am going to finish it into a little hanging piece. I added a little shamrock charm at the top.
I wanted to share this wonderful pincushion I received recently from my friend, Cathy. My mom and I met Cathy at the Dyeing to Stitch Retreat last October. I love Retreats! Anyway, Cathy sent these pincusions, one for me and one for my mom. Aren't they just gorgeous! Cathy's 79 year old mother does the tatting and  Cathy assembles them. I think they are just fabulous!! I took the pink one because I love pink. Thank you again Cathy!!

Now, for the giveaway update....

Those pin cushions are really beautiful. You and your Mom are very lucky.

Wow, you are generous to do two prizes! I encourage all of your followers to get their name in the running for your next giveaway! Your latest pieces are you do all your stitching on a frame? You have much less wrinkly pieces than I do! And I agree with Deborah that the pincushions are really pretty...what a good friend!
