Three "Heart in Hand" pin cushions~a MB design

As I sit and wait for Maggie's new book 'Pure and Simple', I decided to practice my stitching skills by making these 
'Heart and Hand' pin cushions from MB's "With These Hands". 
 One for my daughter, Sandy and two for my 
grand daughters, Kohana and Kylie. 

The hand is mine traced, somewhat shorter and 
stubbier than the one in Maggie's pattern. 
Am really enjoying stitching these.  
Maybe I need one too???
One is half way done the other two are waiting in line. Want these ready for Easter ... Hope I make it.

Hope you are enjoying the weekend as I am ...
Sending Folk Art Hugs with 
Peace and Palm Sunday Blessings to all,

There were times when I said to myself ... "Forget the housework, errands and what ever else ... finish the mat."
Last week I did.
It is so primitive and I really struggled with these small pennies.
   But,,, I am so happy with it.
My stitches are really bad,  my excuse, besides being a klutz with needle, thread and a thimble, it is PRIMITIVE. . . .
* * *
I am way over due to have this completed. 
 I just wanted to share my delight and enthusiasm.
BTW, this is a Cee Rafuse design and kit.

Thanks for visiting . . .
Peace and Blessings for all,

EASTER PARADE framed in an eggshell ~ Done

Now available on my Etsy

Will be made into a pillow, waiting for some dried lavender
 to add to my wool snippets for stuffing. 
Here is a picture of the pattern #180302 .
 Soon to be a pillow,
Approximately 8" x 6 1/4" at the widest points.
It has been slightly antiqued, since I love a more primitive look.

Folk Art Hugs and Peace for all,

PS - here it is as a pillow ...
