About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

  33. Great dress form pincushion. I like the quote in the middle too where it will be seen by the person you made this pincushion for. A friend of mine made me a similar pincushion, although not with Nancy Drew fabric. Your mom had a great idea for the flower to sharpen your pins and needles.

  45. I am thrilled to see you make the dress form pin cushion. I've had it marked to do for months and have not tried it yet. Your pin cushion is amazing. I hope it was not difficult as I would like to make a couple for our quilt guild show boutique next year. The flower is a great touch. At times I wish I had listened more to my mom. Thank you for participating and inspiring me to at least try the project. You are creative and an inspiration.
