Fun Mail

I received my box of pincushions from the HGTV Quilting Forum swap today!
My quilting room is certainly going to have more personality... with a pincushion for every mood. My photo doesn't pick up the beautiful beading along the sides of the yellow one very well (we are having another gloomy day). Aren't they super cute? I might have to buy some more pins!

I recently won two giveaways that I wanted to share. The first was from Sinta at Pink Pincushion who had a week of DST (De-Stashing Time) giveaways. She sent me this Jo Morton book and 4 packages of Moda "Candy". It's always fun to have a new book to browse and you know how much I love pre-cuts!
Then last week I received these goodies from Linda at life, quilts and a cat too who held a giveaway during the Stitch Me Up Embroidery Blog Hop. I was expecting the needle threader and the spring closure hoop but she put in a few surprises. She included a super cute charm pack for my Project Linus work and a bright yellow microfiber cloth (she had asked for my favorite color).
She wrote that she uses microfiber cloths to hold the strands & bits of thread and floss while she is stitching. It works like a charm! I spread it across my lap when I was using Mr. Ripper on Saturday and all of those pesky little bits of thread clung to that cloth instead of my fleece pullover.  I highly recommend you give this a try.

Thanks again HGTV swappers, Sinta & Linda for brightening my days with fun mail!
