The Pin Cushion Craze Continues and THE GIVEAWAY WINNER!!!

The latest obsession I have with pin cushions is getting a little out of hand, but I am having so much fun making them that I can't stop myself!! This one is made with a vintage McCoy custard cup and sheep toile fabric and two wee sheep resting on pom poms... I mean really is there anything fab that it is not missing? oh yeah bling ;O Seriously, I LOVE this one! So today Hannah and Max had dentist appts. and ofcourse we had to stop at the GW, I was hoping for another sweet planter or two but alas not a single good cushion holder. There's always tomorrow... SING IT ANNIE!!! It kind of looks like the ram is nuzzling the lamb... awwww
O.K. here's what you really want to know... Drum Roll Please.... (imagine me making the crazy drum roll sound with my lips here... Hannah volunteered, o.k. you know she didn't... to draw the name. Without further ado...

CONGRATULATIONS Fran of thebagglady... !!! Now imagine confetti and balloons dropping from the ceiling !!! Fran, send me an email with your address so I can get your goodies out to you!

Thanks everyone for playing along, this has been fun and so there will be more giveaways in the near future! Actually I like what someone called it today (sorry I'm tired and can't remember who it was right now) a GIVEBACK, I like that because that is just how it feels, like I'm giving back some goodness that you all have given me.

Thanks for stopping by, Theresa xoxo

  10. I agree the pin cushion is quite unique and pretty! So clever! and I am so blessed to be the winner of your cool giveback!!! Love that way of saying it too! Thank you! Thank you! XO Fran.

  11. When I was at the Japanese store the other day, I thought a little container with an opening so that I could make a pincushion. I have material and a glue gun that needs to be cranked up again. HA! You've inspired me. Haven't done it before but I'm gonna give it a try -- I mean, how bad could it turn out? Right??!! Congrats to the winner of your giveback. Many blessings, Tammy
