Some unexpected surprises!

I own up, I have never owned a 'proper' pin cushion! My pins have always lived in the box from which I purchased them from. A couple of my friends who are much more experienced sewers than I, have often laughed (been disgusted, paid me out!!) about that fact!! (all in fun of course).

One of those friends came around for coffee last week and guess what she had made me? Yes, a pin cushion which sits in a delightful tea cup!! It's beautiful....thanks Janette!

Her daughters also made a few pin heads out of shrink wrap. Aren't they just the sweetest?

 My pins will now live in the lap of pink luxury!!

Another little surprise I recieved was this lovely neclace...I love the colours as it goes with so many things.

I hope you are enjoying your week.

I'm joining "Pink Saturday', so hop on over and see some lovely 'Pink' things!

Hello Annette,

Oh you lucky lady, a new pincushion and necklace. How were those pin toppers made?
I remember a lady who came to a patchwork group I was in many years ago, her pincushion was a piece of wadding bunched up. It worked for her but we always had a dig at her.
Enjoy your new lovelies.

Dearest Annette,

That was a sweet and practical gift from your fiend! You sure will enjoy its use, as well as your necklace.
Love to you,

The pincushion in the tea cup is just lovely. I used to make beads like that when I was young. My grandmother showed me how.
