Summer Pincushion Swap

Gorgeous goodies were waiting my arrival home from work yesterday. My Summer Pincushion Swap had arrived from Mai from the Netherlands and it is fabulous. Mai has designed her own pincushion, a windmill, and it has two little pockets each side for scissors, thread and needle threaders and on the back is a needle keeper. Included was a 1.2m tape measure, a great length for quilting.

Thank-you so much Mai, I'll treasure it forever! Thank-you too to Sandra at Quilt at Home for hosting this fun swap.

My pincushion must be close to reaching it's destination, stay tuned and I'll let you know who the recipient is!

Awwwwww Jo! Your pincushion is just divine! Mai is such a talented lady! I was lucky enough to do a pincushion swap with Mai (mine is just about to be sent on it's way!) and I was bowled over by Mai's craftswomanship!

Have fun! I imagine you can't stop looking at it?!!!

I'm blushing, what a nice comments you got about your pincushion I made for you. It'isn't so difficult to make. I made a pattern of it, but it's in dutch. I'm so happy that you liked the pincushion and the goodies. I loved to be your swap-partner, I'm waiting that my swap-partner sends me something!!!!
