A Wondrous Gift

Remember my dear aunt who so beautifully crocheted those two scarves I shared a couple weeks ago? Well, she is also very handy with the sewing machine! (A trait I very much envy, but am very glad to receive the benefits of). Just look at this ingenious pattern she found! The pincushion is not only weighted, but the base and the bottom of each petal are lined with grippy material to keep it from sliding. The bag holds sewing notions for current projects and also has a darling little pocket perfect for stowing scissors and the such like.

 Isn't it lovely to have people in your life who use their talents to bless others? I am sure God smiles when He sees us blessing each other with the skills with which He endowed us.

I love you, Aunt J!
