I received my fabric swap from The Marvelous Mouse Design Fall Fabric swap. It's from Chris at Fuzzy Sheep Crafts. She sent me some bright dotty fabric - which I love. Chris also made me two lovely gifts: a pincushion which was made from her great-grandmothers stash and an eye pillow filled with rice, flax and lavender. The lavender comes from her grandmother's garden in Provence, France! She used a darling chicken fabric on the eye pillow and the other side of the pincushion. I'm not sure I want to put pins in it. I may have to start collecting pincushions now! Check out Chris's blog http://fuzzysheepknits.blogspot.com/ she has some darling baby pictures to share. Thanks Chris!

Those dot fabrics are pretty cool. They would look cute in a lot of things, but would be awesome in kids quilts.

awwwwww....

you are so welcome!

I should have thought to sew a button on both sides of the pin cushion! It looks like it needs another one...

I hope that you can use the fabrics - I was a little worried that they might have been a little too modern for your liking - so I can't wait to see what you make with them!

Best wishes!
Chris
