Laura Finished a Small!

I finished a small!  It is not the small from January; but you gotta take what you can get right?  This is called Vintage Pincushion and is from the BBD Joyeux Noel book.  I used some Peacock Belle Soie silk that I was given at a BBD retreat I was lucky enough to attend.

1934 is the year that is charted, and it just so happens that it is the year that Rose Carlson and Robert Wade Bates were married in New Carlisle, Indiana.  They are my grandparents so the charted year was perfect!!


  1. Pretty color. Nice little finish.


  2. Yay, Laura! I have seen you start lots of projects but this is a thrill to see a finish! And what a nice remembrance of your grandparents! This will look great in your bowl of smalls.

  3. Very cute Laura - congrats! How nice that the date worked out perfectly for you. It's only 2 weeks into the year and you're already got one done - hooray!

  4. This is just lovely. So nice to meet you just found your beautiful blog and so happy I did. I have enjoyed looking around and I'm now following you, wonderful to meet new friends. Hope you find a spare minute to visit me sometime if you like follow back. Sending you special wishes for a wonderful New Year I’m looking forward to keeping in touch in 2012.
    Always Wendy
