You remember I'm on a pinpillow kick, right? I can't tell you how tickled I was to win Lynn's blog giveaway, especially when the prize was a pinpillow. I received it a while back but I've been lazy about blog posting. Let me tell you...I could smell the Lavender (my favorite scent) when I opened the mailbox!
Isn't it precious? Lynn made the sweetest counting pins to go with it. I am just so pleased to own one of Lynn's creations. Every time I walk by it gets picked up and smelled. And I mean every. single. time! Thank you Lynn!
The next one is my own makings. Lindsay and I have been friends for years beginning with my becoming her "floss mom" back in the day. Whenever Lindsay finds she needs floss, she sends me a list and I will pick it up for her at cheap USA prices and if I find something I need from the UK I know I can always ask Lindsay for help. Every now and again little gifts go across to the other and here is one of mine to her.
I took several Blackbird Designs motifs and created a little pinpillow. On the back I added our initials.
It is stuffed with crushed walnut shells, makes it nice and heavy. I trimmed it out with chenille, dyed brown.
Three handmade counting pins complement the pillow. I think Lindsay liked it!
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
