Pin it

Well, after much fussy cutting and hand stitching, this is what I came up with for the Modern Quilters' Scrappy Pin Cushion Swap...

This project represented a couple of different firsts for me - my first pin cushion, and my first attempt at decorative hand stitching. I wish the latter was slightly more uniform, but overall I'm delighted with the end result! I had such fun with it, too, especially getting to play around with my Japanese charm squares and the too cute bicycle fabric I got this summer in Portsmouth. My swap partner really seemed to like it, too. Phew!

I LOVE the pin cushion I received in turn:

Aren't the colours amazing, and all the points so precise?! The back is oh-so-cute, too!

Don't you just love this little sewing room? And, as if that weren't enough, my partner also sent me a fabulous little extra - a teeny, tiny drawstring bag that'll be perfect for a special Christmas gift! (Am I going to get in trouble for saying that word?!)

Thanks, Tomomi! L…

We've moved!
