The Goode Huswife . . . Scattering Moments

Two Pinkeeps (The Goode Huswife)
Weeks Straw
NPI Silks 928 and 696
Backing Fabric Jo Morton
Stash Over Dyed Rick Rack

There are times in all our lives when we need a simple, quick stitch.  This simple pincushion by The Goode Huswife has been in my stash for a few years.  Two colors, a repetitive border and primitive lettering with a happy thought was just what I needed.  

Bridal showers, graduation, commissions, weddings, and family visits makes for a very busy time at Thistle Manor.  

During this busy time, simple designs will work best for me.  
(Looks like I need to add a couple more stitches to complete the letter "g" in scattering)


  1. I love quick stitches too nd this was a nice choice. Goode Huswife never goes out of style if you ask me.

  2. Beautiful work! Simple is good, especially when so busy!

  3. Wonderful finish and you just can't go wrong with GH patterns!

  4. I'm a GH and simple stitch lover, too. The backing fabric looks perfect!

  5. Great finish! I love a quick stitch every once in awhile.
