I got sidetracked onto a French blog - I found free patterns for the most lovely pincushions!! They are counted cross stitch, and with the charts, I don't think we need English. She also includes a photo tutorial of how she puts these together; very interesting, indeed. http://grillesdemaryse.canalblog.com/archives/sal_collection_de_pinkeeps/index.html

Ok, I thought to type the main part of her web addy in Google, and clicked on "translate page"
so... here is the English version - not sure if all the pages will be in English, but here's a start

Found them--LOVE Halloween (realized that Jan would have been posted in Dec. 2008. Lovely Halloween and Christmas ones!)
I'm also grabbing the alphabet sampler (probably won't do it, but one never knows and FREE, is Free, after all!)

Found it! thanks, Sally!

Jacqui, hon, you just ignore my wildly waving hand, and make these for whomever your sweet little heart desires. ;) (though I wouldn't turn one down, from your talented little fingers).

I think I need 4 to make my version of this quilt (pattern is "Fox & Geese" from Quilt in a Day but Teresa used her mom's cross-stitch as focus)
