Well, my darling Aussie friend Liz, over at The Village Quilters, knows how much I love pincushions and so several months ago (I know, I know) sent me a darling pincushion that I had to add the guts to (ya know how expensive international postage is these days). So tonight, while finishing up another project, I filled it!! Whoo! Hoo!!
Is it darling or what?? Now, I did have to add my own buttons because, of course, I could not find the darling buttons she sent me but it turned out sooooooooo cute!! Liz, thank you, I love it and it will hold a grand place in my pincushion collection and is going on my Pinterest page!!
Now the project I was finishing up just before I finished Liz' pincushion was part of a pincushion swap I was involved in. Here is the wonderful pincushion Betty, my swap partenr, sent me a few days ago ~
It is so fun and it is huge!!! Again, because of postage costs, she stuffed it with batting but I took it apart and changed out the batting for crushed walnut shells. I know Betty intended to originally stuff it with crushed walnut shells too because when I opened her up little baby walnut shell litterings were inside. But again, the cost of postage would have broken the bank!! Thank you, Betty, I love it!!
Here are the two pincushions together so you can see how big my new pincushion is!! So fun!!
