    Having dinner with a friend tomorrow and she is a survivor........so I thought that I would do a little PP and make her a pin.

    Was just about finished and pressed it and (low and behold) there were black marks on it. Can't figure where they came from as the iron isn't old enough to have anything spitting from it.

    Dipped it up and down in some sudsy water and they seemed to come out...

    Thank goodness......

    Here's the results.....

    Good morning, Quilter7x, I notice that someone else already gave you the information for the pattern. It is on the Connecting Threads, their free patterns.

    pookie ookie put the site in this thread a few posts back...just click and download.

    As she mentioned, she has the patriotic pattern which is great for any Mother of a service person.....just a little token for them to say Thanks for their children's service for all of us.

    If you like PP, you will have fun with this one.

    What a thoughtful idea for you to do that for your friend. I made some small pillows that they could put under their breast while laying on their side. Even though they are survivors they still use the pillows for comfort.

    She will love. I am a 8 year survior and have two more surviors in my mini group. I'll have to make them one, thanks.
