My little woolie pincushion from Lynda.....

Several years ago, the Wild One bought some patterns for me from Lynda Hall of Primitive Pieces by Lynda as a Christmas gift. Every quarter, Lynda has a drawing from all the names of people that had bought patterns from her during that quarter...........and the Wild One won!  My gift was a hand-made pincushion by Lynda! 




What made it so special is that Lynda is allergic to wool so she had to take extra care.  I really appreciate her doing that just for little old me.



Lynda also has a blog now.  If you have never visited her blog or website, you need to go.  Besides quilting and designing prim patterns, she has a wonderful prim house. There are pictures on just about every page of her website and bunches if you click on the "Telegraph Office" tab.





Lynda has also organized a "block party" for the last two years to raise money to fight Ovarian/Breast Cancer.  I participated this past year.  We had enough blocks to make 4 quilts that were auctioned off.  Here is just one of them.  To see them all, go to the "Box Lunch Social" page of her website.




Hopefully, she will have another Block Party in 2010.

Blessings, Cathi

Love the pincushion and I love Lynda. She is the nicest lady. I've got so many of her patterns. I need to sit down and actually make one or two of them. Oh wait....I did make one. lolol

Thank you Cathi! I'm really glad you like the pin cushion...I do feel for Darlene with her allergies. Mine have been awful lately......however, having said that I'll do whatever I have to so I can work with wool. lol The "You Can Run" turkey on my blog caused this latest episode.

Thanks too for the plug about the breast cancer "Block Party" There will be another one coming up next year so I hope you and your friends will help out again. It's a project near and dear to so many of us. For anyone reading this note, you can read all about the block party on my website...
