It Keeps Calling My Name!

Yes, it is Blackbird Designs Summer House Pincushion. Here it is in the Honeysuckle Manor book. And the two Crescent Colour threads I will be using-Shamrock and Secondhand Rose.

Pink and blue are my favorite color combination. They were the colors in my wedding many years ago. I have a luscious pink gingham fabric from Moda to use as the pincushion base already chosen. Actually I chose the fabric then picked the threads to stitch with :)

I started this design at the meeting of my local EGA chapter Saturday morning. We are already planning our regional seminar in June 2012. It will be here in Tacoma, WA. It will be my first seminar of any kind and I hope to be able to meet some of my fellow bloggers there! It was reported yesterday that we had 40+ teachers respond to the call for class proposals. And there were 100+ classes proposed! Wow! I am anxious to hear what the final choices will be.

Should I admit that on my way home from the meeting I stopped at a local quilt shop to look for some Moda sampler fabric I am trying to find? Well, it seems they were just starting a Make & Take class. So, I had to ask "What is a Make & Take class? It sounds like a cooking class" It was actually a primitive pincushion class and I sat down and started my 2nd pincushion of the day! Picture tomorrow :)

Crazy January Challenge Wrap-Up-

Thank you to Minna-the originator of the Crazy January Challenge 2011! It has certainly sparked my interest in stitching AND my wishlist has grown by leaps and bounds! Not only was I guilty of enabling other stitchers, but I was enabled myself :) Some of the items on my wishlist are OOP and I have put together a list of patterns to trade with so PLEASE take a look at my wishlist and email me if we might put together a trade, buy or borrow.
