The Gift is Small

Here is another one of AppleJack's Valentine's from the past.  This is a design from Chessie and Me called The Gift is Small.  The verse says:  The Gift is Small but Love is all.  Our initials are stitched at the top.  One of my favorite parts of this pincushion is the satin stitch used for the basket.

Winter returned to Thistle Manor yesterday with very low temps and a "light" dusting of snow.  It was a good day to put on a big pot of soup, watch old movies and stitch.  Callie Mae and AppleJack were happy to take naps and read the paper.  Am making progress on Eve--she is a most fun stitch.  Will share when she is completed.
