Something completely different...............
















A pillow-shaped pin cushion made from vintage white linen, a scrap of pretty fabric, a vintage button, with some little embroidered details.

Filled with soft filling and a scoop of lavender and off to a friend as a "Thank-You".

So nice to make something completely different for a change.

  3. Good Evening Gill, I had not realised the size of your pin cushion until I saw the photograph with the pin wheel. It is so beautiful. Adding lavender was a lovely touch, as each time your friend places a pin in the pin cushion, it will release the beautiful lavender fragrance. I know your friend will be thrilled to pieces when she receives her gift.
    Best Wishes

    1. Thanks for your comment Daphne! Yes it is quite small but not tiny! I like the idea of a little lavender in a pin cushion. I don't seem to be able to leave a comment on your blog, or reply to your comment by email, which is why I'm thanking you here for your comment!
