Finally my recipient has received her gift and I can now safely reveal the contents of this wrapping.
Well here is the pincushion I made for Frieda. The idea came when googling, as you do, and I came across this similar one from this lovely blog. I thought how very suitable for a pincushion I was sending all the way over the seas to the U.S.A.
Now at the time I didn't know how to use the lettering on my fancy sewing machine, so I was kind of excited to finally be given the push I needed to work it out. You wouldn't believe just how easy it is. Just a few button pushes and out popped this lovely script writing.
Well I kind of got carried away and added a few more words on the back of the envelope.

And since I enjoyed making it so very much, I thought I'd make one for dear Kate as well. She's done such a brilliant job of organising this huge swap that I thought she deserved a wee gift too. You are a real super trooper Kate!
She has just received it and I suddenly wondered if she knew to unwrap the fabric and bow?! Here is her pincushion, similar to the one above but personalised for Kate.
The writing is a little difficult to read unless you know what it says, but I'm sure these ladies know exactly what's written.
Now does anyone know what tomorrow is? It's a special day for me. Tune in tomorrow for the answer.
