It's Pincushion Day

It's finally here! International Pincushion Day!

A few months back, Jeannet had the wonderful idea of a pincushion swap and I along with quite a few others (about 150) joined up.

Wednesday my pincushion arrived all the way from Holland, beautifully handmade by Nicole. She has done some very fine cross stitch on linen and attached this to a lovely piece of fabric for the top of the pincushion and added sweet buttons. Thankyou so much Nicole.

Nicole also included a lovely teabag caddy. I look forward to enjoying the tea.

Below is the pincushion I sent over to Nicole ... and yes ... I'm rather hooked on hexigon flowers
at the moment. Which is how I found my way to Jeannet's lovely blog. Thankyou Jeannet for hosting a great swap.
