Look what came in the mail!

I recently decided to join Jo Morton's Yahoo Group just in time to take part in the 2010 Pincushion Exchange. At first I was hesitant, but boy am I glad I participated. It has been so fun viewing the parade of pincushion photos and then today...mine came in the mail from my secret sister in Liberty, NY. She hand pieced the precious little darling in my favorite Jo colorway. Click on the image to enlarge it so you can see the detail of the basket. It matches the sewing pouch that Tamami made for me and fits nicely in the little pocket so I can take it everywhere with me. Her gift to me also included a pair of my favorite applique scissors with a charm that says 'Friendship.' She threw in some betweens for hand quilting and needle threaders. Now I am set!


  1. What a fun package of quilting delights, Cheryl. I can hardly wait to receive mine. I finally picked a pincushion design for my contribution and bought the fabric today, so I'm all ready to get started.

  2. A Pincushion Exchange is also a great idea for a holiday gift giving or just a prize idea for our guild.
    Thanks for the great idea.

    Your gift was exceptional. What a thoughtful person and a useful pincushion.

  3. What a lovely little bundle of gifts. l am also taking part in the swap. My pincushion has been cut out, still waiting to be sewed. Thaks for sharing.


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Love any comments you wish to share.
