Progress and Pincushions

Hi friends !

Just wanted to show you my progress on Doña Dorotea and a couple of pincushions I finished.

Here is Doña Dorotea... It is coming along nicely.



I love the deer !!



This is a little pincushion I finished.  It is Gathering Basket by BBD.  So cute !



And here is the back...



And another pincushion by BBD.....



And this is the cutest little pincushion that my friend Katrina stitched as a gift for me when I became a US Citizen.  Isn's it the cutest thing ever???



Have a wonderful week !!!

XXOO........ Natalia
