Exciting day in Blogland!

This is a very exciting Blog day for me. Not only did I get my first THREE comments today, I have my first follower! I promised myself I wouldn't move the Followers gadget to the top of the page until I was lucky enough to get one. Now, thanks to Daffycat, that gadget sits proudly under About Me. Thank you ladies!!!

Another finish!

Here is my latest finish! It is also my very first pillow ornament. I love how it turned out! I'm really glad I had my sewing machine serviced because it would have taken forever to sew it by hand.

First Finish of 2009

I've finally finished something! It's also my first biscornu. Let me tell you, they look far more difficult than they actually are! I used the tutorial on which was the best one I found, especially when you get to the corners!
