Everyone that entered was matched up with a partner and contact details were exchanged. I was matched with Gilli who described herself as a beginner/intermediate stitcher who loves cross-stitch and felt softies and has made a couple of pin cushions for friends in the past.
I decided to knit a cup cake pincushion so that it would be different to the pincushions Gilli designed herself. I also sent a little extra which was an egg cosy and egg cup to keep her morning egg warm ( but I forgot to take a photo to show you - sorry)
I sent my pin cushion off to Gillie a few days ago and on Friday I received a parcel in the post - so exciting.
When I opened the parcel inside was another parcel wrapped like a big pink sweet - I couldn't wait to open it ....................
My favourite is the felted heart I can't wait to add it to my sewing kit and start to put it to work.
Its been such a nice project to be part of I will definitely do something like this again. If you visit the House of Pinheiro blog you will be able to see some of the other beautiful pincushion projects.
talk soon - night night x
