Women's Day Greetings...

... from Finland

 with my version of SKofW Pincushion!

... and with few glimpses of making it...

My pincushion is more square than round shape. I would liked it to be round and flat-based. Gray linen is also not quite as nice as I would have liked it to be... 
but at least March is now done... better shapes and colors next time;o)

Joyful Women's Day to you All, my dear SAL friends!!!
