Those pin cushions are adorable. I know how it is to get carried away and suddenly, you have made more than you intended. The pink shawl is adorable. I love the sparkles. It was cool and rainy here. . .I planted a few nasturtium seeds anyway. I'm so ready for sun and warmer weather!

Well done on the pincushions...they will be great for the sales table. That pink graduating colour shawl is lovely. Always good to see colour in the garden.
