It's the 24th.....

.. which means we get to open our little swap parcels...

this is what had arrived earlier this week... my pincushion swap parcel from Susan

I've always admired Susan's lovely work and attention to detail so I was a little bit excited


... oh my gosh....

isn't it amazing....


.... look at all the detail.. fussy cut hexies and cross stitched seams...


... wait.. there's more...

... there is another side to it!!


my lovely pincushion arrived with a couple of Anni Downs labels and the cutest card made with hexies..


Thank you so much Susan... I love my newest pincushion.

I didn't catch an early enough post this week so my partners's hasn't arrived yet.... I am so sorry ... so if you were expecting one in Susan's pincushion swap and it hasn't arrived you can blame me....

... but this is part of it....


Righto, Gotto Go .....Sunday is here to be enjoyed ... Hubz is in the garden and my machine is calling out to me...

What a lovely surprise to receive Susan's beautiful pin cushion. And it's reversible, what a clever idea.
I am still patiently waiting for my postie.

Hello Fiona,

These pincushions popping up all over are so beautiful, almost like they should be put on display. Love how the bee on the other side. Hope the postie has been doing his/her job and the other pincushion has arrived.

Happy days.
Bev.

Now I see this pincushion on your blog (my blog reading is waaay behind) I see who made it and it doesn't surprise me - Susan's work is lovely - I watched her stitch a bit at Nundle - she makes it look so easy.
