Pin cushion Exchange

I sent this overseas to Malaysia! I have made so many of these pincushions but have yet to make one for myself :(. I’m still not sure if the recipient liked it.

This is the whole package I sent:

I sent some Canadiana goodies.  I really have to make a pincushion for myself, to house my silk thread spools! Oh, the theme of the pincushion swap was for it to be in blue with a button and some blue stash!


Some sewing…

Well, here are this months Christmas BOM.  There are two for May:

This one is calle “Good Health,” which is perfect for today because I am sick wit a cold, so stuffed up and sneezing….

This one is called “Faith.”  I changed my foot on the machine and now my blocks are a perfect 9 1/2 inches! Yay! I’m still unsettled about the colours but I will still stich along and finish each month.  I am up-to-date and enjoying it!  Here is the pattern from Debbie Mumm, if anyone is interested it is called Christmas Wishes.

Here is what I have so far:

I have been appliqueing too:

But I don’t feel that I am getting any better.  I will be undoing that big red “blob” which is supposed to be a flower.  I tried to put the centre circle in but it ended up very square :(….so on I persevere…hoping to get better!

Time to take in the laundry on this balmy 20 degree celcius spring day.

Goodies in the mail!

There was  a quilting sale at my favourite Toronto quilting store, so I sent my sister some money and told her to spend.  She sent her quilting friend and I really like what she picked out, on the left.  I can’t wait to use some of the green in my current applique flower project! For stems.  On the right are some fat quarters that my sister picked up…perfect and my favourite peanuts from Simcoe and I received my Country Woman magazine today.  Now I am off to make a pin cushion, for an exchange.
