And I had such fun! I received my glorious package from Leah "Smoochee" all the way from Australia this week:
That cross one is BIG.....it surely will hold ALL my pins and needles!!! Leah must have known that I have lots! And, surely being that large, I won't misplace it. (Another plus!!) Good thing it's not filled with crushed walnut shells (like I fill mine)......I might not be able to lift it. lol Really though, I do love it! The piecing is amazing and the style is right up my alley! She also was so generous in sending another pincushion, some darling pin toppers, a fat quarter and tons of sewing machine needles. Wow! I lucked out!
This is the package I sent my partner, Susan (FlossieBlossoms). She let me use her photo with permission:
I'm sure you remember the frog and wrist corsage from my past posts. There's a long story regarding this package. I discovered that Flossie never went to prom as a girl and I thought a play on that theme might be fun. I wrote a fairy tale that included close to 40 flickr names of people we both know and had her open certain things in order. The fairy tale is here. I think writing that was more fun for me than even gathering the stuff or making the pincushions. You might enjoy it too. I wonder if she ever did kiss that goofy frog???
Anyway, that's about the news with me. I'm working on something and after that, I have another one almost finished in my head. If they both work out like I envision, I'll be doing a happy dance. What I'll do with all this stuff is the question though. I only have so many walls..............lol!!! Have a happy weekend, my friends............until next time.
