Some time ago I bought the Blackbird Designs With Needle and Thread. It is such a wonderful book. A new one has just come out and I have to get it. It brought this book to mind so I dug it out of my increasingly growing large stash basket and sat down and stitched the lovely pin cushion in it that I have wanted to stitch from the first day I saw it. I am going to put it together over the weekend but wanted to share a picture of it with everyone. Isn't it sweet?
I stitched it on Silkweavers Days Gone by Linen. Its more gold in person then it is in the picture.

I just recently broke down and bought this book and this is a "must stitch" for me. I really love the design and can't wait to see yours finished up. It is adorable. Did you use the over-dyed's recommended? Great job, Sharon!

A gorgeous design stitched with talent, Sharon.
I'm sorry about your swing that was destroyed...
And I do hope that your grandaughter is feeling better now.
take care,
Lili
