I happened to admire the floral fabric in this pincushion the other day. A potential partner for some of my large scale florals, I thought.
So I asked what it was.
Flower Garden, by Sevenberry Fabric, came the reply. But alas, I could find no trace of it on sale.
I am always amazed and delighted by the sudden generosity of strangers.
It makes me feel very smiley indeed.
And as I like to do as I would be done by, a swap seemed only sensible…
Petite pieces of patchwork-perfect prettiness were pressed and put aside.
A mainly small-scale selection of bits and bobs – for button-covering or stitching.
I hope they suit.
It is said that it is better to give than to receive.
They’re both pretty fine if you ask me!
Here’s what I just received…
I’ve had so much more fun selecting a scrappy swap than I would have by simply shopping!
And guess what – as an added bonus Georgina has sent me enough of her Sevenberry fabric to back a cushion.
I’m a bit speechless!
