    I received the cutest little friend from a far away land today. Thank you Caroline! I love it! Is it felt or wool? Is it all sewn by hand? I would love to learn this technique. I love the one made by m-Fay too. I wish you ladies could give me lessons. The one I made seems so simple in comparison. You inspire me to learn new things. What a fun swap! Name:  image.jpeg

    Nonnie4,

    Do my eyes deceive me, is that a mouse sitting on your pumpkin? M-fay where do you find all these ideas for pincushions? They are just too awesome!

    Hi Nonnie4,

    I am so glad you like him. Most of it is sewn by hand except sewing the pumpkin together, that I do on the machine to give it strength. It is made from 100% wool. I have recently discovered wool appliqué and love working with it.... it is even hand dyed by me.... I really enjoy all the processes.

    Hugs

    Caroline

    Hi Everyone,

    A little late, but here is a picture of the beautiful pincushion I received from Michelle. Cathedral Windows is such a beautiful block and Michelle has done a wonderful interpretation of it. Michelle, thank you so much... I really do love it.

    Caroline - What would I search for to find the wool? I can find wool felt squares. And would I search for wool applique patterns for a beginner pattern to try? Last one...what do you use for stuffing? It feels heavier than polyfill.

    Well, I am getting a little worried. By process of elimination, I have m-fay but when I took the parcel to the post on Oct 8 the clerk didn't seem to know what to do. She made me change from my box to a cushion envelope and then back to my box and then did not know how to affix the customs sheet. M-fay - I hope your gift is not lost at sea.

    Nonnie it arrived today and I love it. It did get flatted in the post, but I will fluff it up again before taking a photo to post. It was so well packed it took me ages to get it cut open . And I love the dish cloth you knitted to and to know that you do them while travelling in your motor home. My DH and I loved life on the road too, especially taking the back roads. And the little duck.iwill treasure it always and I will take a pic of her with my other pewter treasures. Thank you so much love it all, photo tomorrow

    Oh thank goodness! Whew! I was getting stressed. I was sure she had not known how to get it to you. I love that my little old duck has found a new home with friends :-). I love it when people add a little personal info in their profile. It makes adding something especially for them so much fun.

Size:  1.12 MBThank you again Connie. Where I live we only have mail delivered 3 days a week. So delivery is always slow but it arrives eventually.

    Nonnie4,

    I purchase my wool felt from Colonial Crafts.


    P.S. I worked at my local Post Office for 5 1/2 years. International is so detailed, it has many specific requirements. The clerk probably did not want to make an error.

    M-fay - My heart swelled when I saw little duck among his new family representing NC USA and our swap group. That makes me very happy.
