One Fat Pincushion ready to fly over to it's new home!

This is one huge pin cushion... I made it from some left overs from that linen skirt and an old doiley and a vintage button. I wish I'd made it after I learned to crochet edging cause I would have done that too, never mind I think its still ok. I have a huge pin cushion and it's so useful, so I hope the new owner loves this too. It's off with a couple of other treats for this swap run by the lovely and inspiring Kate.

Much, much concentration.
He has to play games that read the instructions to him,
so we all get to hear it over and over again...
"Thanks for putting my dreams in order!"
