Jeannet's Pincushion Swap

In August I joined up Jeannet's pincushion swap...along with 150 other swappers!...As Jeannet is Dutch and I was relying on Google translate I managed to misunderstand and think it was a secret swap...you know, person A sends to person B and receives from person C...but no, it was a direct swap...which became clear to me when I received a parcel from the person that I was sending to!...challenged, sometimes...seriously challeged *LOL*....

Anyway, my swap partner from the Netherlands was Annelies who sent me this lovely pincushion in the colours of the Dutch flag...

 ...card trick, a traditional block that I've always liked...and nice dutch scene fabric on the back...a reminder always of my Dutch swap partner...and in the parcel a nice pattern too...thank you Annelies...
 
I made this pincushion for Annelies...

...a pattern by one our Aussie designers...Leanne Beasley of Leanne's House fame...I enjoyed stitching this design...I forgot to take a photo of it with the fat quarter of fabric that I wrapped it in...oops!
 
Thank you Jeannet for hosting...

Happy Stitching

Actually, I am Dutch, although I live in Wales, but I did not understand that it was a direct swap until I received from the person I sent to!! So you're not the only one!:)
Both your pincushions are lovely.

Hello Jindi, thank you for you nice comment on my weblog. You are sleeping now, but in Holland it's Saterday evening, time to eat a piece of dutch applepie and have a visit to several nice blogs. You made a lovely pincussion and Annelies wil be verry happy tot use this. In my 'klosjesquilt' I used also the Dutch fabrics Annelies did. Many greetings, Peti www.lepetitbonheur.web-log.nl
