Pincushion Swap part 1

I entered a pincushion swap organised by Claire the other week and my swap parcel arrived on Saturday :) I was partnered with Lisa and I love the goodies I got.

First up is this very cute mouse pincushion - the girls have already tried to claim it but I said no! He is quite small and so is the perfect size for living in my sewing box :)

Lisa likes quilting (check out some fab work on her blog) and so she has passed this pattern onto me. I don't really like patterns (I find most of them tricky to follow) and have never made a 'proper' quilt before but this pattern looks like it might be fairly easy to follow. I also like that it is scrap friendly :)

Some yummy ribbon that will come in very handy - check out the cute frogs!

A set of alphabet stamps. I have some already that I use quite a lot and these ones are different so will get used lots too :)

And I needn't say more really need I? Those girl ones in the middle are going to be saved for something special.

Thanks Lisa and thanks Claire for organising it! I have sent my return parcel to Lisa but I sent it a day late and now it will be caught up in flights delayed by the volcano - it is on it's way Lisa I promise. I'll show off what I sent when I know it has arrived.

Swaps are so much fun, i'm doing two at the moment, but they're really creative and iti s nice to send people little extras with their swap.

Wow, I'd love to know what this pincushion swap is all about! Well, first, I need to find some local fellow crafters to hook up with ... Your parcel had some real treats in there, so I'm looking forward to seeing the results.
