Pin Cushion Swap


I've found a wee project that will force me to extract the digit and actually do some stitching.

The project is not too daunting ... and should be rather fun.

I've joined a whole group of crafty types for a pin cushion swap dreamed up by Kate, over at Fox's Lane.

A lovely idea .... but I fear Kate might be trampled in the rush.

Seems that truckload of folk have jumped at the chance of making a pincushion .... and then swapping it with someone else. Kate is coordinating logistics between all the swappers and swappees. Phew, that's some spreadsheet she's going to need. If you like the idea, you have until Monday to sign up.

I'll be delving into my stash to find fabric and perhaps a vintage button or two, but I need to see who my swap buddy is going to be and perhaps check out their blog to see just what they'd like.

Thanks for a great idea Kate!

Update

I whipped up my pin cushion last night. As soon as I get a moment I'll take a pic and post it on my blog.

It was a lovely project, started and completed after dinner. Quick and easy and fun - gotta love that! I've very happy with the result. I'll wrap it in some pretty paper and then it will snail mail its way to its new owner.

Come back soon to see what I made.

Oh you are so welcome. Thanks so much for joining in. You're right though, I have been swamped and am currently procrastinating pairing people up by checking out their blogs instead. Hope you enjoy the swap. Love Kate. X

This sounds like such a nice little swap. I wish I signed up for it, I don't even have a pin cushion :)
