Good things: Pincushion swap

My pincushion for the swap organised by Kate of Foxslane is speeding on its way to my swappee ... and it should arrive today.

It's not been the easiest process. I had what I thought was a great idea and started it with plenty of time to finish, but in the end the idea didn't work for me and two days away from deadline I started all over again.

And I'm really happy with how it ended up ... mostly because it's completely my idea. That's always satisfying.

It's also been daunting because you should see my swappee's work. Her skills are amazing ... and she's so young.


And how much fun does the parcel look. I just had to make a tag to go with it, and in colours to go with the pincushion. I can see myself making a lot more of these.


Happy swapping guys.
