Smalls Report for August.....

Today is the day we post our Smalls for the month.  Heather of Stitching Lotus is the one hosting this SAL.  If you are wanting more information on this SAL, please click the Smalls Link at the top of this post or Stitching Lotus link in the text.

I was afraid that I might not have anything to share for this month but thankfully we were able to get our house set up and unpacked all within a week.  However, all the pictures are just not hung up on the walls nor are the Precious Moments all unpacked but the rest of the house is all in working order.  I think that is great to have moved and did all the unpacking in a week of having the household goods arrive on one Thurs and the house in working order by the next Thursday.  Granted, I do still have to unpack some boxes in my DD room but she's off to college so she'll get her room the way I get it set between all my stitching.  Unpack a box in her room.....go stitch for a couple of hours.  LOL

Anyway, enough of my rambling.  Here is a pincushion that I designed and stitched.  I did the finishing work this morning just to have something to show for today.  I stuffed it with both polyfil and some crushed walnut shells.

I also did the finishing work on my friend Angelica's pincushion.  So I'm going to share it here as well.  She did the stitching.....I just did the finishing.

Don't they both just look so cute sitting in front of that knitted pumpkin???  My best friend Kimberly knitted that for me one year because I fell in love with it.  I didn't knit at the time and I only do minimal knitting now.  NOTHING like what she can knit.  But I love it as it is such a nice decoration when fall comes around.  I have another pumpkin that my other friend Deb made me but I forgot to pull it out.  Sorry Deb but I promise to go pull it out now to enjoy!!

That's all I have to share for now.  I'm off to go get my Just Nan started to be able to share next week.
