  3. First, I want to say, I love your pattern and your blogspot. I just now found it by looking through Ravelery.
    I've alwyas loved any pattern with the pineapple in it. I can remember my Grandmother having one simular to this hanging in her sewing area. She had lined it with some soft fabric, and stuffed it lightly. She used it as a pin cushion.
    I'm going to spend a lot of time looking over your site.
    Thanks again for sharing your patterns.
