Remember when I told you about the pin cushion swap that I was a part of? Well yesterday I had "royal" mail waiting for me. I would love to receive a package from England every day, because their stamp reads "royal" mail. It makes me feel like a princess :)
Anyway, sweet Virginia, who lives in Bath, England made me the cutest pincushion AND the coolest pin on the planet. I adore tartan plaid, and think this will look so cute on a cardigan when the weather cools off. Thank you Virginia!!
Have you seen the tutorial Trish over at Notes of Sincerity shared for granny squares? Granny squares of the quilting variety? I absolutely love them, and couldn't wait to give it a try. I ended up making, what else, a pincushion. I totally copied Clara's over at Clover and Violet :) I had a little trouble keeping the points when I sewed the backing on, but all in all I think it's pretty darn cute. Thanks Trish for the awesome tutorial. I am definitely making more of these!
