Gift to a Friend

Well, my blogging friends, it's a Monday....and while it is still's not quite as hot as it has been which is a blessing. I hope you are well.

When you get my age, you have an ailment here and there, so today, I visited my doctor. I should have gone to the clinic on Friday, but NO, I thought I'd "manage" until Monday. And, I did. But, don't you know I may have had a much nicer weekend had I gone, as I should have, on Friday. Not to worry, I will be fine, albeit a little uncomfortable until the meds really kick in.
Do you ever put off going to the doctor?

The reason I mention that is...I really don't feel very chatty tonight....but all day I thought "oh, I've got to post something tonight at the latest." You know I always feel neglectful when I feel late with a new post. And, I'm late!

So, please take at look at this pincushion and let it say some things for me....I hope you enjoy seeing it. I made it for my blogging friend, Gaby. I especially loved embroidering the blue heart and, as always....the French Knot flowers. Do you love French Knots as much as I do?

Hopefully, you will enjoy seeing it as much as I enjoy seeing all the beautiful things you make! And, as always, I'm thinking of you "out there." Do take care, have a good week....later this week, I will show you an ATC card also for Gaby....thanks, always, for the visit! pat

And Maggie Ann has the same words as I was going to write. Your blog was the first one I checked this morning and was pleasantly inspired once again! Your thoughtfulness in reaching out to people and friends, your making this beautiful pin cushion for Gaby. I hope you are feeling better soon and may the blessings you bestow to others be returned in plentitudes (don't know if that is the expression I wanted) to you, Pat. As ever:
Happy to be stitching C:

I love the pincushion - lucky Gaby! The blue French knots are just so girlie and pretty. And I always love anything with hearts. It's very sweet.

Pat, I hope your meds kick in soon and that you will be in the pink.
The pin cushion is a work of art.

Pat-amazing & beautifful (as always). Just finished my "secret sister" candlestick pincushion I made for a Yahoo Jo Morton pincushion exchange, based on your wonderful design. Thanks for the class & pattern.
p.s. Hope you feel better. Thanks for the camera info - I bought it last night. Went with another Canon & very pleased. said...

Glad you felt like posting and showing Gaby's beautiful pincushion. Your french knots are as beautiful as always.

Whatever it is Pat, I hope you are feeling better very soon!

Hugs and Love,
