over the weekend this chickadee got a hankerin' for some good old fashioned down home fun. with no chickens to chase around the barnyard and no cows to tip in the meadow, what's a poor girl to do? thanks to the folks at the paisley pincushion, you can at least look the part. their scalloped apron pattern is indeed "reminiscent of the by-gone days" (the sales tag line that sold me). it was simple as pie to put together. the instructions were plain as day and i'm pleased as punch with the reversible results.
