I have this chart copied into four parts, and the two top parts are almost finished. I was so worried about the blanket, but I am finding it is not at all hard to stitch. The sides are way more color changes than the actual blanket. It is a very long blanket, I am only about half way and it gets wider at the bottom.

I received this cute pin cushion in the mail last week. When I was in Holland last March, one of our online stitching ladies did a contest "name my house". Roberta and her husband Terry moved to Atlanta. I chose Roterra Gardens. She named the house Humming Bird Hollow at Roterra Gardens. Thank you, Roberta for the cute little pin cushion you made.

Your warrior is really coming along. Does he have a name? Maybe White Feather? Remember your Indian guide? The pincushion from Roberta is so cute. Now you have a place to park your threaded needles. :)

Love and hugs ~

Hugs, Carolien

P.S. I hope you enjoy your new desk.

Hi Nancy,
Your warrior looks GREAT so far....and in my opinion one can never have too many pincushions, especially pretty ones like that.
Yes, the frame is BIG and unfortunately in my living room for now until my sewing room is finished, but I am very thankful to have it. Thank you for your kind blog comment :D Tam
