Pincushion swap

Thanks to Linda at All Stitched Up there was a cute pincushion swap. Here's the one I received from Betsy which is a beautiful Cathedral Windows one using fabulous fabrics. Don't you think that cathedral windows lends itself perfectly for this project?


And here's the one I have sent to my partner. I haven't heard yet whether she has received it so I can't reveal who it is for yet. I wasn't originally going to use this fabric - I had another one picked out but when I found the buttons they seemed to go with this one so much better. It is actually the same fabric I used in my Blogger siggie square last year.( Talk about that has started a little bit again due to this post here.) And the fabric also went beautifully with the DMC varigated thread I wanted to use as well.
The pattern for this isn't actually a pincushion - I made a variation of one of the 5 Golden rings from here. Thanks again Linda - it was a lot of fun.

Very nice catedral window pin cushion. The one you made has me intrigued. I just love the embroidery you did on it and the fabrics are just perfect. Great job!

The cathedral window pincushion is very cute! The recipient of your beautiful pincushion with the cute embroidery is very, very pleased.

Hi Lynda - I do know that Jason Mraz is here in August - I secretly bought tickets for my hubbie's birthday! He doesn't know yet so I have to stay 'mum' about it on my blog (he reads it!) Your embroidery is so sweet and I do love your pineapple doll quilt you have sent for a swap - great colours!
