A Very Special Pincushion

I have fond memories of reading to my daughters when they were little. A few of our favorite stories were Bony-legs by Joanna Cole, Frog and Toad books by Arnold Lobel, and Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

When my oldest daughter Justine gave me this pincushion as a combined Mother's Day and birthday gift, I was teary-eyed. This is her own creation; it was lovingly handmade by her.


Here is a recent picture of Justine with her chinchilla named Chauncho

Thanks for stopping by to check out what I've been up to. I am stitching, but there's nothing to show at this time.
