I have a couple small finishes this week. This is from one of those Just Another Button Co pincushion kits. It's called "Stuck on You". I took it with me to my monthly meeting with quilting friends and did the whole thing in about 2 hours. My pincushion collection keeps growing but I can't help myself. I think it came out really cute and perfect for February. The bottom box portion comes with the kit but it seems to be from those Whitman's little candy packs they have out this month for about $1.29. I bought a couple at the grocery store in case I ever want to make more of these as gifts. The kit included wool roving to use to stuff the 'chocolates' and it was so much nicer to use than the polyester stuffing. I may try that in future for stuffing other smalls, it seemed to be less lumpy.
And, I am ahead of schedule and finished my February ornament last night. I might even get 2 stitched for February (!) but I probably should work more on my WIPs this month. I love the peppermint tree in this one!
We just purchased some tickets for spring training baseball games for next month (spring is coming already!) and tomorrow we're headed out with friends to a fair Phoenix is putting on to celebrate Arizona's 100th year of statehood. Yes we're one of the 'youngsters' when it comes to the 50 states - Arizona was the 48th state (last on the mainland) to join the union on February 14th, 1912. Happy Birthday Arizona!
