Pincushion

I showed you here my lovely pincushion I got from Susan.... and a mention today that mine hadn't been seen reminded me to post about mine...

... well you know the deal with these swaps is that to get one you also make one and send that off... and my partner was the lovely Elyte....


It's a design by Natalie Bird


a little mouse on a cotton reel looking after things in pockets.


.. and another mouse smelling the flowers and a ladybird


and a needlecase ... and hexagons...


... and a scissor pocket...


.. she has thought of everything in this nifty not very little pincushion... and I loved adding little bits to it like bee buttons and threads etc....

The main fabrics I used were Lynette Anderson and beautiful wool felt and added some extra pieces for the hexagons...

It was so fun to make and Elyte has said she loves it and that's the main thing isn't it....

Thanks Susan for hosting this fun swap.... there have been a bunch of fantastic and all different pincushions made...

Righto, Gotto Go.. there's a weekend to prepare for... woohoooo.....
