I'm back...

A few weeks ago, Pokey posted some pictures of her funky chicken pin cushions and I commented on her blogpost about how much I liked them---then, the unthinkable happened...she offered to make one and send it to me!

So cute!  I love the comb...

And the cute little tail feathers.

The pins were included!

She also included a charm pack---called "Friendship".  Thanks for the package, Pokey!  It certainly brightened my day!

I noticed a few pictures on the internet this past week of friends' first day of school. Here is my first day of school for Kindergarten. This picture was taken just a few years ago...LOL.

I have not done any sewing or blogging for the last couple of weeks --I have been busy with some family health issues. Thankfully, the sick family member is getting better and things have settled down enough to do a little bit of hand sewing this weekend.  I am working on binding my Mexican Stars wall hanging. It is not quite done yet but I hope to finish it tonight in time to take to show and tell at the London Friendship Quilters' Guild meeting later this week. I am linking to Kathy's slow stiching Sunday post here.

The quilting was done by Cathy.

I think she did a great job!

I am off to do the rest of the hand sewing on the binding and then I will post a picture of the finished wall hanging.

I am hoping to have another Great Granny or two to show later this week, and maybe even a swoon...


  1. You are adorable on your first day of school!
    Such a cute pin cushion!
    Enjoy your binding...I'm sure you'll finish in time for guild meeting.
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!

  2. Your Mexican Stars sure turned out incredible, Gail! Very pretty. I'm glad the lil' chook made the trip safely, lol. You are a kind friend, truly! I do hope the family health issues can be eased, we do worry over our loved ones ~

  3. Yes, Cathy did great job and your pincushion is very cute!!
