For the sewing accessories swap, I made thisbirdsabsurd a mushroom house pincushion in a cup based on something she had on her wist. 



This project really tested my limited embroidery skills!   Cheesy



Here's an in-process shot.

How adorable, MW!! The little flower path leading up to the house is so sweet. I would have a hard time poking it with pins.

That makes it an even greater pincushion! It is so adorable!

I wouldn't stick needles into such a treasure either, hahaha which leaves me with... not enough pincushions I dare to use!  Wink
