Pin Cushion Swap

So as part of my effort to be more crafty, I joined a swap. More particularly a pin cushion swap run by House of Pinheito and Sew Far Sew Good...

We were each paired up with another pin-cushioner and left to our own devices to chat and make.

I was paired up with Jess of Knitting on Trains (fantastic blog name!)

I already had an idea in my head about what I was going to make and I found out from Jess that her favourite colour was yellow.

I tackled a crochet tea cup :)

Apart from granny squares this is I think my first ever crocheted item, so I am quite pleased with it. 

It is a little wonky donkey so I decided to include a couple of tea related items with it.

A variety of herbal teas - Camomile, Redbush, Cranberry and Mint.


A tea pot and hematite bracelet :)

And here is what I received earlier today...

I love the birdie wrapping paper too.

Jess crocheted this gorgeous pink pin cushion which is also stuffed with lavender. It smells lovely :)

Thank you Jess! :)


  1. Wow - fantastic pincushion, and what a great little parcel you sent off (love the bracelet!), Sarah x

  2. You're very kind. And thanks so much for my lovely crochet teacup - you've got great skills!

  3. It was a bit of a challenge and took three attempts but I was happy with it :)
