" A cross stitch "Friendship" pincushion makes for a Happy Monday."


Happy Monday to everyone, hope you all had a good weekend.

Friday night I cross stitched this little pincushion. A freebie from Christine.

From what I can gather "A notre amitie" means Friendship.  I stitched this on some white 14 count Aida. Using DMC threads in the following numbers 754, 898, 3345, 3688, 3829 and 3839. I am very happy to have a finish. The fabric that it is sitting on is what I used for the back of the pincushion.

We had another Birthday lunch for David on Saturday with family members who couldn't make it during the week. David has read all the messages regarding his Birthday and says a big thank you. Here is getting ready to cut the cake on Wednesday evening.

I am happy to be joining in Friday-Night-Sew-In this week. Sign ups are at Heidi's blog.

Happy Monday

Adorable little pin cushion! I love the idea of turning a cross stitch into a pincushion. Happy birthday to David! 21 is a big one to celebrate. Looks like he enjoyed a delicious chocolate cake.
