Well, the van's all packed and we're heading out the door on our long drive to Utah for a Tuesday wedding. I'll leave you with this detail shot of a pear pincushion. I meant to include this in an earlier post and get your take on it. You see, the first time I made one, it only had one leaf. This time I added a second leaf. Together, the two leaves make a sort-of needlebook -- poke the needles through the underleaf and hide them with the upper leaf. I'm still trying to decide which is better -- any thoughts?
Yes, there have been a lot of pear pincushions around here lately, but I wanted your take on the leaves and I figured it was better to say 'goodbye' with a photo in the post -- so, there you go. I'll be back in a couple of days with handiwork from the long drive ahead. Also, if you're waiting for me to respond to an email, please give me a few more days -- it's been a crazy week. (Rockport, Gina, Kathy, etc. this includes you!) Thanks for your patience -- oh, and Matt comes home from the hospital today -- Yay!
