At the end of the week I received a squishy package in the mail from ENGLAND!
It was from Sharon – my pin cushion swap “partner” for August.
she went ABOVE AND BEYOND!
(I know she said it’s because I’m the swap hostess, but still)
I opened up the envelope and there was all this!
Here’s some close ups!
I LOVE this little owl
And the “actual” Pin cushion for the swap- cathedral window with a button.
Then this FANCY needle case with hand embroidery on it- another owl of course!
Lovely details inside and out, even the back had a small bee! how cute!
Then this scissor case with my initial on it, and the fabric is this soft sateen looking fabric, again with lovely embroidery.
And a scissor FOB- had to look up that term, I had heard it before but thought it was an abbreviation, but No! fob is the whole word.
: a short chain attached especially to a pocket watch
: a small object that is a decoration on a watch chain or a key ring
and lastly two FQs to make something for Sonja or for her to play with
THANKS so much Sharon! I’m beyond thrilled and in awe that you did this and especially being sick ;( – say a prayer for her……
Anyways, It’s at the end of this round of the pin cushion swap.
Who wants to join September/October?
The rules are simple.
You have to make ONE pin cushion per month and send it to your assigned person by the end of that month.
(and email me a picture so I can put it up on my page)
You CAN put in a few extra goodies, but that’s up to you, it’s certainly NOT required and NOTHING like all of this, that I got this month.
Let me know who wants to join and I’ll email you a little questionnaire about you and your address etc.
