Great SD for me

Wednesday and Thursday are my weekend so to speak. So, when I don't have any plans I call them my slob days. Today was great. I received a wonderful HoE winter Quaker exchange from Edda. She stitched a snowman and made it into a mattress cushion. I know how challenging these cushions are, so this one is extra special. She included a Barbara Ana design "Fur-Ever Friends." I have in mind to do this on a large count fabric and take it to the Humane Society for the lobby. She also include some Piecemaker needles, some silk threads, and a Prairie Schooler freebie chart. Thank you so much Edda, I love it all.

I also completed the stitching on the Heart in Hand Easter Bird. These long legged birds are so much fun. I love them all. I finished it into a hanging pinkeep. I do believe I have gotten the hang of making the pinkeeps now. This one went together very fast. Guess the old adage is true...practice makes perfect. In my case, it's almost perfect, but what the heck. That's what makes it mine. These phots look a little blurry to me. The camera batteries must need to be recharged. I think they are clear enought that you get the idea. Have a wonderful Thursday.
