This Little Pincushion Went to Market

Last year, I was way ahead of the game with my pincushions. My pal Deb says I was done by August. I did all the stitching by hand and was so happy doing it. I was using Alex's new Alexandra line that wasn't out yet and feeling kinda smug ;-) you know, smiling alot! Then she emailed me asking if P&B could use my design for a handout at Market. My design? the little basket is Alex's and I just came up with the idea, but... SURE! I was honored! I had to make an extra for the sample, but that was fine by me! I think they gave them out at the Schoolhouse, but don't really know for sure. Alex made sure that one kit was saved for me. I thought they kitted them up real cute..... So this little pincushion went to market and all of the other little pincushions went wee, wee, wee all the way to retreat!

This is really cute! I think I still like the "butts" better, though.

Well done on the fabulous little pincushion kits, you should be very proud they like your designs.
This year's and last years all look great, I have done piping but am no means a master, I can see I need to come to you for tips! Tracey
