Hello Dear Reader,

Yay! Lookie here! 
I've finally worked out how to upload/download photos from other blogs!  Tee hee!
Always with permission from the owner, of course!


I'm taking part in a Pin Cushion Swap over at Beaquilter, and you can see other pincushions that have been made and posted HERE. It's the first ever swap I've joined, and I have been really nervous about taking part, here is this first pinny I've received. It came all the way from America from Meloney who blogs at ..... Mel’s Quilting Blog

Meloney was sweet enough to send a lovely pouch for my pincushion.

 And lookey all that purple! You read me well Meloney!

And this is how Meloney's pinnie and pouch look with a few of my latest makes! You'd almost think I'd made them, tee hee!

Oh, and I almost forgot to show the lovely card that came with my pressies.

Shortly, I'll be able to show you the first pincushion I've sent ..... it went in the post on Monday! 



And in other news, guess what! I've got my new sewing machine ..... but not used it yet! More about that next time.

Happy Stitching everyone!



Hugs,
Barbara xxx

You are one lucky girl, you got a beautiful pin cushion with a pouch and a card. Then you got a new sewing machine which I hope you will enjoy a lot.
Have fun.
