PIF Received

I received this lovely pin cushion as my PIF from Mary Kathryn. The picture does not do it justice, it is absolutely awesome.

I stitched this for a friend who retired and moved to Prince Rupert to be with her daughter and family. It seemed appropriate as she made the move to help look after their 2 boys and new born daughter. I couldn't get it finished before her move, so will be mailing it off this week, hope she likes it.

We have been having absolutely gorgeous weather. Some days are so hot, but then it cools down the next day which is nice. So it looks like we will get a summer after all.

There's a contest going on over at Stitch Pink , take a look at the July 9th posting.
