I'm not even sure I want to keep it for myself! The top was supposed to be wonky but the whole darn pin cushion was not meant to be that way! Absolutely abysmal. My old sewing teacher would be appalled. Hell, I'm appalled! So, back to the drawing board. I may have to fall back on my age old swap goodie extra and make one of Ayumi's fabric baskets because I don't have time to be dithering over what to make.
We'll put my little stint of sewing this afternoon down as a fail then.
The postman didn't fail me though. I am getting things in the post that I am not even expecting. That fill me with delight and make me smile all day. My friend Sarah, over at Sew Me, sent me a gift just because she is so nice. How about that to brighten someone's day?! Sarah has been busy lately making some absolutely gorgeous cushions for Christmas presents for her family, and this is despite recovering from a wee operation. She is amazing. I highly recommend that you stop over at her blog and say hello because someone like Sarah deserves all the hellos and the 'you make beautiful cushion' comments she can get. Here's what she sent me.

And she chose green to go with my hst cushions I made in the summer!
If more of you want to pop around, do so. I can always make another cake. It's easy peasy lemon squeezy. Literally, with Lemon Drizzle. I know - terrible joke. Is it any wonder I messed up the pin cushion?!
