Pincushion swap

I love making pin cushions so I joined a small pin cushion swap with some blogging buddies. This pretty little package has been tempting me for a couple of weeks and I finally got to open it today!

Wow, wow, wow! Look at the adorable little pincushion I got from Dawnie. The detail is exquisite, so tiny and precise. Even the label on the bottom is perfect.

The golden topped pin is actually a Japanese needle capper. Fortunately Dawnie included instructions for that or I wouldn't have known what it was. Thank you so much my generous, talented friend, I love my new pin cushion.

A few chores and groceries this morning, then an afternoon of quilting in the sunshine I think. Thanks to those who answered my plea for sourcing Valdani perle thread. I ended up finding just the colour I needed at The Threaded Needle.

Happy stitching.
