After thinking I wouldn't be able to resist opening my pin cushion swap parcel early...I nearly forgot to open it Sunday! When I picked up the mail Friday I was busy with kids etc and I put it in the sewing corner and then promptly forgot about it!
Sunday I was rushing out the door to go see my Dads groups wood turning exhibition and then meet Mum and Lisa for some sewing...when I found the parcel! Elyte made me this beautiful hexi appliqued pear on a linen background...with red reproduction fabrics! Love love, love it! And it was wrapped in this sweet floral fat quarter and also contained this cute bird button.
Now I know I am suppose to stick pins in this, but it makes a delightful pillow to display on my (new to me) wooden carved wall "stand" (eg I have been told it's really a pipe holder, but smoking is definitely out of favour at our house)
it looks super nice next to my lovely new mini....did I mention I love red...and pears! : )
Happy quilting, Sue
