I thought I'd break up the long train of toys (see last three posts) with a fun little pincushion. Does anyone remember the flouncy bouncer saga and thereby neglected pincushion design? That was seven months ago. This little pincushion has remained in my cabinet since then, sewn, stuffed and tufted. All it needed was a button -- poor little pincushion. And, as luck would have it, I had just enough crafting time today to sew on a button -- so here she is, neglected no more.
I've got a friend I've been meaning to send this to -- the only blogger who knew what I was up to with Free Spirit last year (before I started my blog). If you're reading this, Amy, thanks for the happy email breaks during last year's fabric marathon. The pincushion's on its way next week : )
For the rest of you'uns, I'm posting some goofy photos I sent to her mid-process (showing Freshcut in the works). But I am in PJs, so be warned. Oh, and they're terrible pictures - they were taken with the built-in camera on my computer around midnight - no light. You might have to click on them to see what's on those papers - eek. That email was sent January 5, 2006. Here's what it said. That was twelve months ago.
As for today, I've been informed that a couple of comments have disappeared recently. At least two. So, if you've noticed that your comments haven't stuck around, please don't be offended. The only comments I've ever erased are the occassional duplicates. Typepad was down a couple of days ago and is likely the cause. I'll send them a note and see if they have any more info. Otherwise, be sure to hang around to type in the security code after you've commented. I know that I forget that step sometimes and have had to go back in and reconstruct my thoughts.
And, again, thank you for each and every comment. Such a treat! I don't have time to respond to each one individually, but I try to answer questions as much as possible and leave comments on your fabulous blogs. If you have a question that I haven't responded to yet, please feel free to send me another email. I'm working on putting up a website with some f.a.q.s to help in some cases.
See you soon -- Happy Weekend!
