Mattress Pincushion

I noticed this one wasn't included in the picture for this month's w.i.p's, i nearly completed the stitching with this one when i took the picture so i thought i'll quickly finish it & completed it off into a Mattress pincushion. I couldn't find who the designer is, printed it out last week and forgot to take note from who. I am not even sure if it's a recent freebie or from previous year. Do hope somebody can share or know who is the designer.
I used DMC: varigated thread, #48 on 32 count linen. I do love how it turned out!!! Now, i hope i could fine some of my previous February theme i've completed before....


Yesterday, our daughter Grace(17) passed the second test to join the academy for commercial pilots. We are really happy and proud she've made it being the youngest in her group. Although she still have 3 more test to go...Hopefully it will be scheduled soon. Because she doesn't have any other options to follow after her term here which will end this coming June. Kind of heavy for her now as it's her exam year too...

Many thanks to all who stopped by and all the kind comments, they are very much appreciated.
