Tisha's birthday was an opportunity to bring out the wool for a fun project. Tisha loves crows-not sure what draws her to them, but she is attracted to every one she sees. I saw a really cute crow pincushion in a quilt shop and I bought the Need'l Love Summer Spirit Threads book for the pattern. The pincushion calls for a glass candle holder to be used as the base, but I wanted something more prim. On a trip to an antique mall, Anne found the perfect old black wooden candlestick for me to use.
Tisha was tickled with her gift and she named him Aiken (because we were in Aiken, SC when Anne found the candlestick).
Anne has been doing some needle felting lately--she is so talented! She made Tisha this absolutely adorable grey wool mouse for her birthday. His name is Stitch :)
