More Swap Goodies

Yes, I did it again. I joined another swap. Not only am I addicted to hem, but pincushions as well. That’s why the latest pincushion swap grabbed my attention. Swap partners were only announced a few days ago, but I was so motivated to get crafting that I’m already finished! Fortuantely for me, one thing my partner wanted was a cupcake… so I made another version of the Sew Pretty Homestyle pattern. This time I made the top of the pincushion in a pretty pink wool felt and added glass bead ‘sprinkles’. I topped it off with two ‘lolly’ pins. Now I just need a box to ship and I’m ready to send!
I also made another gift for my Christmas Stocking swap partner, Carrie. This stuffed bird ornament can be found in Last Minute Quilted & Patchwork Gifts and comes together pretty quickly. I think if you had the time, you could decorate an entire tree with these cuties using your scrap fabrics!

    When I lived way out on Long Island, I belonged to a small quilting group. We were invited one year to decorate one of several trees along a historic shopping crescent in Stony Brook, NY. For our tree we used a bird pattern similar to yours (ours had added wings) and made the “doves” in white with touches of gold, all slightly different. It was the prettiest tree!
    The decorations were then sold for charity.
    That cupcake looks almost edible. Yummy!
