Pincusion Swap


My pincushion for the swap was mailed back on Monday. I expect that the recipient will get it early next week, as it has a long journey to its new home in Australia.
I surely hope that she will like it as much as I do...I am quite pleased with the result. I found a pattern here that caught my eye, and I adapted it a bit: I used 5 1/2" squares and I left off the wrist strap, and I added embroidery from the Sublime Stitching book by Jenny Hart.
Along with the pincushion, I sent a zippered pouch to my swap partner as well. The pattern for the zippered pouch can be found here.

Your pincushion is very pretty and feminine. I wish it was winging its way to me. Sigh.

What a pretty pincushion! Very very different -- wish it was coming this way!

Oh, this is a pretty pincushion! How will anyone have the heart stick pins in that? :o) I'm sure your partner will love her pressie!

Great pincushion and pouch! I've bookmarked the pouch pattern for future reference.

It's very pretty. But I must admit that upon first glance I thought it was a frosted donut. (I would think of food first!)
