Yesterday when I went to the post office to check to see if we had received any mail, much to my delight…apart from the fact that there were NO bills…Paulette’s pincushion was there waiting for me! Lori had already worked her magic on it and sent it on to me.
Paulette chose “The Four Seasons” as her theme and she started out with Spring using the lamb as her focal point. Lori chose to do Autumn and added some pumpkins and sunflowers.
Then it was my turn and and I decided to do something Winter-y.
I added a snowman decked out in a black fedora with a cardinal perched atop his head. He has a colorful scarf, twig arms and a carrot nose, of course! And right next to him is a fir tree, laden with freshly fallen snow.
Tomorrow it will be on it’s way to Karen for it’s last stop in it’s round robin journey and from there it will make it’s way home to Paulette who will finish it off as she sees fit.
Just to give you an idea of the miles that this particular pincushion has travelled, it originated on Vancouver Island in British Columbia and was then sent to Oregon. From there it made it’s way back to Canada across the country to Eastern Ontario where it will head to south Florida. From there it will be returned home to Vancouver Island and I’m estimating by that time it will have travelled between 8-10,000 miles.
So three legs of the Round Robin are now complete with one to go. I can’t believe how much fun this has been. We will all end up with a pincushion to be treasured for years to come.
