mattress pincushions!

'Spring' mattress pincushion
Prairie Schooler freebie design
32ct linen & DMC threads
flower mattress pincushion
Primitive Bettys freebie design
32ct linen & DMC threads
I've completed these two mattress pincushions last month, gifts for friends and now both were finally received, the Prairie Schooler one to Nita and the Primitive Bettys to Karen. The one to Nita took a while to arrived it did got me worried.
(you can click on all pictures to enlarge if you want) On our way home after the football games of Chris we went to get some potatoes by one of the farmers here and saw this field of Snowdrops nearby their house and these crocuses infront of the house, although you can see lots of small bunches of crocuses along the road these days.
We came home after 2 in the afternoon and Grace said Max didn't want to go out with her for his round so off with him to the dyke. He loves his walks over here but when we first took him home after he hasn't eaten anything at his home he was so weak he couldn't manage to walk up the hill to the dyke so we only goes along the small bush beside the park infront of our house.
These past few days, i prepared extra meal for our dinner and give some to him, he likes it so much that i began prepareing more food for him during meal times. Maybe why he kept following me wherever i go.
Yesterday, i wasn't feeling well but i had to go out for his rounds as he doesn't go without me unless if he doesn't saw me all day.

Thank you all so much for your continued visits on my blog and for taking the time to leave me a comment. They mean so much to me! Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Awesome pincushions, Mylene! Can't wait for the flowers to come out here in Missouri----we are in the midst of a snowstorm today---have gotten about 7 inches so far. It was sunny and 65 here yesterday so surely spring will come soon. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Love both of the mattress pincushions! Is Max a Bernese Mountain Dog? He is so beautiful and my dh and I have wanted one for so long but I know they (unfortunately) have a lot of genetic problems and don't live for very long too :) He sounds like he is being spoiled and well loved though.

Lovely gifts.

Max is feeling good, eating better. Keep it up, Max, we are happy to hear that.

Your finishes are beautiful Mylene, and the flower fields, they are like a dream. I don't get to see anything similar here.

As for Max, I am sure he feels and understands how much care and love you all give to him. He looks so lovely on the photos.

Two beautiful pincushions Mylene. I love the pictures of the snowdrop fields. They grow daffodils commercially round here and they should be out any day now

2 very beautiful mattress pincushions, what lovely gifts.

Are you feeling better today, Mylene??

Max is looking so much better. Your love-medicine obviously works wonders on him!! (And your cooking might be helping, too, LOL!)

Your mattress pincushions make me jealous! I've made a couple but I found it to be a very difficult finishing technique. My fingers must be too big or too clumsy or something!

Jackie said...

Your mattress pincushions are just wonderful and perfect for the season. They are beautifully finished as always.

Charlene ♥ SC said...

Lovely gifts for your friends! Pretty spring flowers, too.

Hi Mylene
Your pincushions are lovely. I enjoyed seeing the snowdrops and crocuses too. I have never seen so many snowdrops all together before. We have snowdrops and crocuses too at the moment and the daffodils are just starting to bloom. Thanks for the update on Max. Sounds like you are taking great care of him and giving him lots of love.

Love your pincushions, Mylene & I'm sure the recipients will also. Your mattress finishes are always so beautiful. I haven't tried to do that finish yet. I'm not all that good on finishing, but I do try. lol

Max is looking good. Your family's love must be just what he needs (& also your cooking for him).

The flowers are pretty & spring is here. ;-)

Mylene, your pincushions are beautiful but the most beautiful thing is taking in Max and making whatever time he has left full of love, good food, and warmth.
I love the crocuses and you know that spring is close by. The kids are growing up so lovely, too.
I love the pincushion finish!!!
