My Pincushion.

This is the pincushion I use & love. I got it in a swap from Rachelle of Ted & Agnes & it’s big & sturdy & exactly what I needed in a pincushion.


We received 3 pincushions each in that swap & I only use this one. The other two are “display only”, sitting pretty on my mantle piece & making me smile every day… but Rachelle’s was made to be used. The funny thing is that she uses the one I sent her too! I love that.


I just happened to mention it to her… or was it the other way around… on twitter… & the next thing I know I was looking at a twitpic of the little pincushion I made out of a vintage blanket from around here in action all the way over in England. I was chuffed I was.


Joining in with my My Place & Yours at… my place! Join in anytime before Saturday or just go visit the players; there are some beautiful pincushions & some funny ones too. A special shout-out to Jackie for being a wonderful meme participant – I like to thank everybody for playing but I noticed everywhere I went today Jackie had already beat me to it! So thank you – it’s lovely when you’ve put the effort into joining a meme to have some new visitors stop by & appreciate it.


In other news the very first meeting of the Geelong Brown Owls is on tonight; I am not at all nervous about it. Nope. Not one bit. You can wish me luck if you like… not that I need it or anything. *gulp*
