This was waiting for me at the Post Office this morning! What a lovely surprise from the equally lovely Francien from here.
When I was at the Craft & Quilt fair last month I bought some little needle threaders, Francien was saying that she too found it hard to thread a needle sometimes now. So, as you do, I sent one to her. It wasn't much of a hardship, they were only a dollar to buy! Francien sent me this totally awesome pincushion as a thank you.
It certainly wasn't needed but it is certainly appreciated. Do you see how lovely and big this is? Destined to sit next to my machine and be used every day. See the fabric at the front,with the little 'strawberry' flowers on ~ I have that fabric! Not a lot left now, I've had it for years, but I love it and keep every little scrap. See, we were destined to be friends.
Thank you Francien, it's beautiful and beautifully thoughtful!
Just on another little note, please click on over to HERE and say hello to Ann. She is joining our CWBQ blog and is very new to blogging, and as another coincidence lives reasonably near to me!
