I love your mattress pincushion. I haven't tried one yet, but I really need to give it a go.

Your ornament is lovely. You are really good to do one each month. I am lucky to get one a year done.

The roses are beautiful. I have never had any success in growing roses.

The flowers are amazing! I was just thinking the same thing about my flowers this morning. Don't you wish they would stay looking like that forever?

The pincushion is darling! Good Job.
