It’s cold and wet outside but when the postman rings the doorbell and hands over a parcel which I know will contain some loveliness I can’t help but feel my spirits lift.
I won a giveaway held by Cara over at her lovely blog Pink Stitches, this is what arrived from her yesterday:
just right for a steaming hot mug of tea on a day like today.
Such a gorgeous pin cushion. Would you believe that a year ago the only pincushion I owned was a magnetic one which wasn’t particularly attractive. I’ve made a couple for myself using the Zakka Style book and now have this lovely one, it’s stuffed but also has something in it that gives it a bit of weight. My almost 3 year old is delighted with it and spent a while taking pins out of this one:
and poking them into the ‘affle’ pincushion – hours of fun guaranteed!
Thanks very much Cara for my lovely winnings, right I must get back to tutorial writing for a new workshop. Have a good day.
