It's so cute. I used crushed walnut shells and silicone beads to fill it. It's heavy so I think it will work well and not get knocked off the table too often.
Sunday: I used my pin cushion a bit today - I'm not sure I like having walnut shells in it - It is quite difficult to push the pins in. Has anyone else used crushed walnut shells before?? How do you find it?
Also on Friday I received a lovely gift from Cath - see here where I won the giveaway for May.
She included a lovely note - saying that a birdie has told her I like Purple - I wonder how the birdie knew that??
and here are my goodies - a fat quarter - very yummy, a variegated thread (LUV variegated threads) & some buttons - all lovely - thanks again Cath.
And - only a short time ago I received the book I had won from Aunt Marti in March - there was a good reason for the delay - so don't blame her or the US Postal Service. It's got some great projects in it - and some recipes - some of them look very tempting - I just have to convert some of the "American" products (like Monterey Jack Cheddar). And the book has been autographed.
I have been so lucky with Giveaways!!
