Pin Cushion Swap

I've just this minute finished my pincushion swap gift.
I've really enjoyed this little swap. 
Not too much pressure and not too much time spent making it.
I might just have to make a few more it was so fun.
Oh I must tell you that this is just the wrapping!  The real pincushion is inside the gingham fabric.
Goodness I couldn't show you the real thing, just in case the lady who is going to receive it is watching.
Wouldn't want to spoil any surprises now would we?
And don't you think crochet flowers are just the ticket to jazz something up?  I swear by them and really should make some more.

My girls are on holiday from tomorrow afternoon. 
How exciting for us! 
We'll be making lots of craft stuff I imagine. 
Two whole weeks of not having to be anywhere at a certain time.  Not that we do much anyway! 
But to stay in ones pj's late, is a very lovely thing. 

Well this parcel will be going to the post office in the morning.  Winging it's way across the oceans.  Hopefully it will have a safe journey and will be enjoyed by someone special.  And thank you very much Kate for organising such a great swap.  You did just great!

Have yourselves a very lovely day today.

You are so welcome!
Thanks for being such a great swapper.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what's beneath that gorgeous wrapping. X

That wrapping is just too nice for packaging!!!! I must teach myself to crochet this year. That flower is gorgeous. Thanks for the lovely comment on my party sewing. I hope you're right about the adolescent era!
