Pincushion Swap - Fabulous!

Isn't it gorgeous! It was made by owenjulesmommy (Christine) just for me.  But that's not all I received. Check this out.

Christine also made a gorgeous folded fabric needle book and a tatted ornament. I love tatting! She included the pattern for the pincushion so I can share the love. There are loads of other treats as well.

Thanks a bunch, Christine! You really have spoiled me!

As if that wasn't enough, more swap blocks and goodies have arrived. You'd think it was Christmas around here!

From Liriopia

Fantastic fabrics in the swap blocks - check out that safari print
A beautiful embroidered block with my State's flower - a waratah
A pretty silver frame, vintage buttons, an enormous piece of fabric and some delish choccies!
Thank you so much, Liri!
