pillow versus pincushion

Look what the postwoman brought this morning!

fat quarter swap 2009

Beautiful fabrics and ribbon and delicious maple candy send to me by my swappartner Stacey from "chickpea studios" She also made this cute gritter, isn't he lovely! Thanks Stacey for these wonderful gifts. Go to Stacey's blog to see my part of the swap.

Update: Doll is still recovering from her bath adventure. The stains came out... doll was perfectly shiny clean until Luca got hold of her. She putted the poor doll's arms in her little mouth right after she eat her fruitdish. Ahh, now doll is ready to take a bath again!
So to make up for all the inconvenience I made doll a pillow.

And if doll doesn't want this pillow I can always use it as a XXL size pincushion. Yes, I think that's what i'm gonna do!

Aahh leuk je poppenkussentje. Ik ben dol op dat soort oude poppenstoeltjes en vind zo'n stoeltje met zo'n kussentje nog leuker. Maar een XL speldenkussen is natuurlijk ook altijd handig.
Leuke swap! Jij had ook leuke dingen gestuurd.

Wat leuk weer gemaakt, heb zelf nog twee van zulke kinderstoeltje zonder armleuning staan, moet er toch eens mee aan de slag, Hoewel ik een voorkeur heb voor wit, pas ik de kleuren aan het seizoen aan hoor, laat het maar weer eens voorjaar worden, heerlijk die felle kleurtjes kan niet wachten en geel helemaal zomers.

Groetjes
