It Needed "A Little Bit More"...

You might remember that I "finished" this ribbon embroidered pincushion
a little while back. I thought it was ready to mail to its recipient, but I kept
looking at it and thinking that it was missing something...so I waited.

 Over last weekend, it occurred to me.
I needed to add a ruffled seam binding trim to the edge.

 When I was finished stitching the trim to the edge of the pincushion,
I knew that it was finally finished. I really loved the "little bit more"
that I added. The next morning I wrapped it, posted it and sent it on its way.

I finished another music-themed gift yesterday and 
I'll share it with you, along with the story behind it tomorrow.

Drawing is this evening at midnight!

I bet you're all ready for another holiday weekend!
Handsome is back home after a week spent with his brother,
so we're looking forward to a nice relaxing few days, 
and some time spent with dear friends.
Happy Friday!

The ruffle is just the right finishing touch! Now it reminds me of one of those easter egg candies that are made from all sugar. Love it! Yes, relaxing is at the top of things to do this 3-day weekend! :-) Enjoy!
