Pin Tryst

Amy FriendBasic Grey, embroidery16 Comments

When I was designing my block for the Sew Out Loud quilt along, I was trying to decide what words I wanted to embroider…something about pins. Of course my poor husband had to hear all about it and so he offered his suggestions. He always likes puns and suggested “Pin Tryst” as a play on the word “Pinterest.” And that’s how this silly little embroidery came to be.

Tryst is defined as “An agreement, as between lovers, to meet at a certain time and place.” I thought the idea of two pins in love and agreeing to meet at a certain time and date on a particular pin cushion was just too funny and the idea quickly formed in my mind. I know it takes a particular brand of sewing geek and Pinterest fan to find this amusing. But it helped keep me busy while I was at the hospital waiting for my daughter to have her tonsils and adenoids removed. All went well. Thank you for your messages of concern. It’s going to be a long week but she is doing as well as can be expected!

Today is also the day that I get to announce the winners of the Basic Grey quilting patterns! And the lucky winners are…..
