Strawberry Pincushion Swap

A couple of months ago I participated in a Strawberry Pincushion Swap hosted by Erin at Why Not Sew? Quilts.

I received the cutest little bundle from Kerri at Lovely Little Handmades. Kerri makes the cutest stuff, and I was so happy to get something made by her.

Everything is so pretty, and I LOVE those little scissors--I use them everyday. And that hexagon pincushion is so cute I can't even bring myself to use it! She added a couple of strawberry pincushions, a fat quarter of strawberry fabric (frustrated that I didn't add it to the picture), and it all came bundled in a cute strawberry basket. It was just too cute for words.

My partner was Jodi at Pleasant Home and I put together a little bundle for her.  I have been a follower of Jodi's since I started quilting, and was a little nervous for her to get something I made. I was behind the deadline and was up late putting it all together, and since I had to work the next day I knew I wouldn't get any good pictures of it and snapped this really bad photo just to keep a record of what I did.

When Jodi received it she was generous enough to allow me to use the pics she took to use for my blog (thank you Jodi!). She is the nicest person, makes some amazing quilts, and she is an awesome photographer. Look at this one compared to mine above--

Her picture makes it look like it belongs in a magazine!! I'm so envious.

Anyway, I really had so much fun participating in this swap--I really wished there could have been a round 2. I guess I'm going to have a find some more swaps to participate in:)


  1. I really like that hexagon pincushion. I know a guy should not like a pincushion but when I am sewing that little store purchased strawberry is so hard to use. :)

  2. I had so much fun participating in the swap too! Everything is so pretty in this post. Love all the strawberries! So glad you left a comment on my blog so I could find you. I'm off to read more posts! :)


I love and appreciate all comments, and will respond to you as soon as I can:) If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can write you back.
