Long ago families often had picnics while gathered at cemeteries to decorate the graves of veterans who had made the ultimate sacrifice.
Picnics and family reunions may be more light-hearted today, but we still take time to salute those who lost their lives in service.
Bird's Tiny Garden
Visiting garden centers is the best part of May. Finally we can take home the tiny plants and fill containers...maybe add a bit of whimsy.
Bird's Tiny Garden is planted with imaginary violet blooms in a pretty blue dish. A variety of green wools and leaf shapes makes the "plant selection" especially fun.
Here in St. Louis, you're Cardinal Nation or you're not, but we don't want to leave anyone out. For any team you cheer, celebrate baseball season with a new Pin-Mini set -- and use the free instructions to make a baseball pincushion.
We've shown our Spoolkeep Pincushions before--a spool and a felted wool ball. Now we've added a bit of embroidery to create a baseball.
