Pincushion Swap

I have to confess I was so excited about doing my first ever swap that I think I had my pincushion finished after only a couple of late nights. But I held off posting it until this week for fear of appearing too keen:))) My partner, who will hopefully have received it by now, requested pink and cream. That was a challenge as being a colour vulture, I don't do cream.  And when it comes to pink, I go for the shocking variety over the baby variety every time. But I did have a small piece of very special fabric that I bought in an antiques shop in Honiton, Devon that I was saving for a very special small project which would be just perfect. I had always looked forward to using the flowers in this fabric. The cream coloured canvas was left over after I re-covered the seat of my rocking chair and was an absolute bugger to sew as the weave was so loose. So here it is, my pincusion swap. Check out some of the others here.
