A Little Hanukkah Pincushion

Here is a small Hanukkah pincushion I designed for our upcoming holidays.  As you know there are MANY Christmas decorations and ornaments to stitch but very few for Hanukkah.  I stitched this on 32ct white linen, WDW sky, americana and tarnished gold.  The front features dreidels and the back has the hebrew letters found on the dreidels.

I am sending a small prayer out to all of the people affected by Hurricane Sandy.  We were definitely spared here in Massachusetts.  We had some power loss and localized flooding but nothing in comparison to the people in New York and New Jersey.  I wish them a quick recovery.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Friday.

You are so right about Hanukkah themes items. Sometimes I feel my Jewish Hertiage has been ignored.

I love your design!
