SwapPIN'


I'm late, I'm late.... for a very important date!

After all the busy-ness of last week, I only managed to finish my pin cushion on the weekend, so I'll be on the doorstep of the post office first thing thismorning to send it on its way.

I'm doing the 'big reveal' early, as I'm quite sure that my swapee has absolutely no inkling that I was her swapper.

After stumbling at my first gung-ho attempt at this, I decided to tone down my crazy patchwork with a bit of soothing green. It was still missing a little something.... so some extra random stitching was required to get it over the line. In the end, it's a very super simple, little pin pillow design.


I've packaged up with some little pins and yummy chocolate. I hope my swap partner likes it!


A huge huge thankyou must go out to Kate who put in so much time and effort to organise such a wonderful (and rather gi-normous) swap.

Super cute Miss Super Pops! I just made it under the finishing line! I was freaking out about it too. I got to on Friday morning and finished and rushed to the post office. Hope your partner loves it too! :)
