A Couple New Finishes......

I managed to get a couple of the Shepherds Fold pieces finished the  last couple days. I happened to have a white Lone Elm box on hand ( they did theirs in a purple one) so I put A Full Heart in the top of that. I used a thick batting to make it stand up higher.

Then I finished the pincushion, Goodness and Grace.  It's a pretty hefty pincushion and takes up quite a bit of space in the box. I'm second guessing whether I should have done it over one like the scissor fob. Oh well, too late for misgivings; I just hope the rest of the pieces all fit.

 I did line the box with some cute fabric with tiny flowers (hard to see....but look close). I didn't put it in permanently, so if I decide to change it out I can. On to the next project, a needle case.

I'm going to be heading down to Ocean City, MD to Salty Yarns for the weekend. The Mid-Atlantic EGA is having a retreat in OC and I offered to help cut fabric at SY. So, if you're reading this and down there for the weekend, be sure to say "Hi"!

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
