Scrappy Pincushion Swap

I have been the most dreadful tease and posted a slow series of tempting pics to tantalise my swap partner at the Scrappy Pincushion swap.  Entree- linen, cashmere/wool, vintage cotton lace.
Entree- Scrappy pincushion materials
Main course: Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley- wall flowers and whatever the grey print is called, Yuwa text, American Jane Recess tape measures and Suzuko Koseki button print.
Main course- scrappy pincushion swap
Dessert: DMC embroidery thread, linen tape with bird stamp and partners initial on the reverse, linen measuring tape to finish.
Dessert- scrappy pincushion swap
Finished! The pinnie bit was based on a little block in Kumiko Fujita's book ABC Patchwork Lesson (now out of print), called St Johns Pavement, I like this  block a lot!  Stuffed with fibrefill as it has a way to travel and I don't want customs getting all touchy about walnut shells etc!



I can only just bear to part with it...x 
Come the weekend, this blog will be celebrating birthday number 1, you know what that means, giveaway time!

  21. Whoever your partner is.. I'm jealous!! Every time you post something you made for a swap, I regret not participating in it. If I had been in the pincushion swap, I could've at least 'hoped' your pincushion was coming my way..!
