EtsyNEAT Pincushion Swap

A swap related to needlearts is something I don't want to miss. Gretchen of juneatnoon, and I had a one-on-one pincushion swap and she surely does know how to spoil her partner. Just look at the tree inspired pincushion and yummy goodies she sent me.
And here's a travelling etui - with pinbed (pincushion) and needle pages underneath the pinbed - that I made for her. Gretchen also blogged about this swap and I love the fact that she had adorable helping hands that helped her to showcase the etui... so don't forget to visit her blog for more photos and her shop of course for her stunning needlearts for sale. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap Gretchen!

Bead Embroidered Hair Pins

The 3 small ones had been sitting in my UFO pile for quite a while... run out of idea what to do with them but I think they look cute on bobby pins. The baby blue one was completed recently, with a pearl coin from the stash that Cat sent me.
Enjoy beading all!
