Cupcake for Dessert

A lovely friend, Arlene Harris, also one of my gifted finishers, just sent me a picture of a finish!  
This is a little Cupcake Pincushion which she has made into a sweet little needlebook.  This design is a freebie for members of my Tempting Tangles stitching group out on Facebook.  
Nice work, Arlene!  I am so pleased to see this all  done - and such tidy, perfect work. Since it wouldn't be wise to actually take a bite out of this cupcake, I suppose it will have to stay as a pincushion!

Spring Hath Sprung

 These  a taste of something I've been working on - and maybe you can guess the subject matter.  If anyone knows me well, they know I love gardens, plants, animals- natural beauty.

It is mostly in my garden where I find the greatest sense of relaxation.  So, I send you just a bit of my garden.  If you are on Facebook, I do post pix around this time of year to show the progression of my garden. I hope you can find it and take a look.   

This pair of designs, as well as two others set to appear later in the year, were worked over 1 on 25 count Lugana.  The result is a set of dainty  little pieces, only 4 1/2 inches square each.   In a few more days, I will post the rest of the details on my main site.
