For those of you planning to stitch this jewel, let me give you a little heads-up. The pincushion pillow has some little bumps (hills and valleys) in the stuffing along the edges. My pincushion was primarily bumpy along the bottom. So when you are tacking the stitching onto the pincushion it wants to follow the bumps. I had to frog once and still wasn't able to get it to lay as flat as I would like. Also, as you can see in the photo, I didn't tack it all the way to the bottom. The stitching was following the curve of the pincushion and I thought hard to see. The pins in the pillow came with the pincushion.
Remember my new rotation that I have started? The gist of it is that I work simultaneously on a large project and a small project. I get the quick gratification of small ones finished while the large ones still see regular progress. So SB Anna's Stocking is the large project I am working on and here is the progress on it. This one is FUN to work on. The 18 ct linen is large enough to work on in bed without my magnifier.
I also started another project-here is what it will look like when I am all finished-
Margaret is coming to the Seattle area to teach this class in March and I am working on the pre-work. It will be my very first "official" class I have ever taken. Lets hope I can count past two when working on this one! :)
