By now, those of you who subscribe to the Gift of Stitching online, have seen the November issue. And I'm sure you all noticed the porcelain pin cushion doll made with a Christmas cross stitch over-skirt by Giulia Manfredini. Well I have always wanted a pin cushion doll and this project was made for me. So much that after I looked at my issue on Friday I went right to eBay and found a three inch half doll that appealed to me. It came in the mail yesterday! Above is a photo of it. How perfect is that? She even has a little dog in her arms. I'm not going to do mine in Christmas colors though, I want a more multi-season one and I'm already thinking shades of blues for it.
I need to start thinking about my next project but until that is clear in my mind, I'm going to work on St. Reatham. I have not worked on it since the beginning of September. I owe it at least two solid weeks of work but I think I'll work it until the weekend.
