International Pincushion Swap

First of all ... thank you all for the birthday wishes. I had a great birthday last Tuesday.

~~~~~~~~

In september Quilting Jeannet organized a pincushion swap and everybody could join, not only Dutch people but also people from alot of other country's joined. Two people where attached to each other, so the one where you send your pincushion to, had to send a pincushion to you.

I had as swap partner Carolyn from America and she send me a beautiful patchwork pincushion

She also send me a Yo-Yo pin

I make for her a pincushion with a pattern from Blackbird Design (Small Token)
(stitched with DMC and Nina's Threads Raspberry, Hibicus and Moss)

I also used a quiltfabric from Blackbird Design and some lace to finish it

I enjoyed this pincushion swap and next year Jeannet will organize another pincushion swap. Well ... I'm in for it :-)
