Bee a Brit Stingy pincushion swap

I received another piece of post this week that contained my Bee a Brit Stingy  pincushion swap. The Bee a Brit Stingy doesn't start until January but we were all keen to take part in a little swap before then, so we were all tasked with making a pincushion. Mine was made by Jan
Pincushion and thread catcher from Jan
As you can see Jan made me a small pincushion with a birdie stamped on the linen.  The reverse of the pincushion was made with some fab fabric and Jan also made me a small thread catcher.

Thank you Jan, they are very  cute and I am  already using them.

In the same swap, I made a pincushion for Catherine.

I used vintage fabric along with some retro fabric. I was really taken with those needles and cotton reels.

All in all, I have had some great post this week and I have enjoyed both this swap and the Paramouthy Stitches swap. 

I am away next week as it is our half term. As we are going where there is no only sporadic internet I will probably be able to access blogger but I am afraid that I cannot do the techie bits that allow you to blog from your phone so I will show you what I am up to on the sewing front, once I return.

  1. Love both pin cushions. Feeling the need for a birdie stamp now too!

  2. Glad it arrived safely and you liked it. I completely missed the bit about sending anything sweet - sorry! :-( Loved the one you made Catherine too. Have a nice break away too

  3. Great swap! lovely pincushions, both!

  4. Di, these are adorable pincushions. And I have been looking at the paramouthy stitches bags too - they are both so wonderful. I hope you have a lovely holiday.

  5. You have had fabulous post this week! Love Jans pinnie (and mine obviously!!)

  6. what a great idea that thread catcher is..... you have had some fab post recently haven't you? Have a good week, see you on the other side xx

  7. Both cute - love the birdy! But where did Jan get the stamp? I think we all need to know!

    Have a relaxing timeout!

  8. I hadn't really realised the bird was stamped on - how marvellous!
