sweet strawberry pincushions

Who doesn't just love strawberries?  Even with it Fall you can't resist them.   Though the season may be over it still can bring that brightness into your day even when the weather is a bit cooler.  Lately, I've been busy making strawberry pincushions thanks to my sweet friend, Erin who invited me to the Strawberry Pincushion Swap.

I made my partner a prettified pincushion but changed the top with adding a pretty mini hexie flower with some of my favorite strawberry fabrics.    I loved making this version of Ayumi's pincushion.  I then made a mini strawberry pincushion and attached it to some cute birdie embroidery scissors for my partner.

I packaged up a few extra plush strawberries with the pincushions in a lovely strawberry basket and added some strawberry ribbon.   And it is winging its way to my partner and should hopefully be arriving soon.  I hope she likes her package.

Then yesterday I received the most amazing package from Amy of Nanacompany.  Even the box was as cute as can be!!

So much strawberry goodness I tell you!!  I just love the amazing large felt leaves with wool strawberries adorned to a fabulous pincushion jar!  Then a sweet plush strawberry pincushion and an adorable strawberry needle book.   I have been truly spoiled!

Aren't these the most fabulous leaves and wool strawberries!!  I love how creative Amy is!!   She is so talented!!

I can't wait to put the plush strawberry pincushion and needle book to use!!  They are perfect!!

For shop news, I added some lovely new Atsuko fabrics.  I have this larger bundle listed, and then I have them separated into smaller bundles too.   Aren't they so sweet!?!

See you soon, my friends!!
