Project #4: Quaker Pincushion- Milady's Needle
I chose this one because I am in desperate need of a pincushion...but I don't want to buy one, I want to make one! When I'm stitching at my parents' house my Dad is always flipping out because I hold my needle in my mouth too much apparently. I saw nothing wrong with that until one day something scared me, I jumped, and the needle cut me. Now I'm looking into pincushions LOL! And I'm quite fond of everything Quaker-inspired.
As you can see, I'm stitching on linen. Thanks for all of you encouraging linen-related comments a couple days ago....I'll keep on trying :-) And thanks everyone for visiting my blog lately, I've been so excited to see that people are reading and following....yay!
Well....I'm thinking I have to add "never take a 2 week holiday from running, even if it's Christmas-time." Tonight Erin (#2), Todd and I met up and ran 5.5k....and it was KILLER! The 3 of us are co-instructing the next 10k clinic so we thought we should get some post-holiday practice in before it starts...you know, so the students aren't actually better runners than us hahaha!
The run was terrible, I couldn't breathe, and couldn't keep up, and when Todd commented that I was probably coming up with lots of 4 letter words to call them, I piped in that Todd and Erin were 4 letter words! That went over well hahahaha....we're all very abusive toward eachother, and we have a GREAT time doing it!
We celebrated our terrible run with drinks at Gertis.
Anyways, off to bed, several hours later than planned...tomorrow should be fun!
