Fun Little Wool Heart Pin/Pincushion
I needed a break from hooking last night, so I dug out my "Comfort Zone" project book by Maggie Bonanomi. I love the projects in this book...very primitive. The heart pin is very small - 3 1/4" by 1 1/2", and was quick to sew by hand. It would actually make a perfect tiny little pin cushion, as well. Little projects like this are fun and provide a little instant gratification. It could be embellished with tiny seed pearls or little beads, or a little embroidery...I may have to think about that!
Last Christmas, I was in the mood to change some things in my home. My dining table light was one of the things that I really wanted to replace. I had had a punched tin "witches hat" cone shaped fixture forever and wanted to update the look a little. I found this light online and LOVED it. It has dark metal arms (it is much darker in person...flash made it appear gray) and crystal balls with a glass center globe and glass trays under each light bulb. Anyway, I love my new dining room light!
Graybee continues to improve and get stronger. He is eating well and drinking water...he is no longer jaundiced, and yesterday he hunted and ate a baby rabbit...poor little rabbit. I hate that about outdoor cats but they hunt instinctively...I just hate to witness it.
Jess is better today...only one short stay under the bed. I guess the long walk in the woods yesterday improved her outlook!
