Yesterday I received the very welcome news that a parcel I had been concerned about arriving intact had in fact arrived, intact, so I can show you the pincushions I made when I was absolutely too late for Kate’s swap, for some spiffing swap volunteers.
I made such a random assortment for my swapees – and with no recipient in mind for any until all were finished & they decided where they wanted to go.
Above: repurposed & painted vintage eggcup.
Yes – this is one of those matryoshka measuring cups you may have seen around blogland, SOMEONE in my house melted part of my set in the oven, “accidentally” so I thought I’d recycle one of what was left…
Above: Salvaged label & backing from oppy blanket.
Below: Again with the repurposed vintage eggcup – I have one of these still, and one with blue shoes, so I could just about part with it painlessly, the fabric is vintage too.
And that is that! I hope my lovely swapees enjoyed the swap & their various parcels, I have received two gorgeous pincushions in return already, to be shown when the other two arrive – I am pretty much set for pincushions for the rest of my life…!
