I Feel A Collection Coming On

I’m more excited than a grown woman ought to be after a visit from the postman!  Of course, I am talking about receiving a parcel  – well, what else did you think? – if you saw my postman you would appreciate that there is nothing else to get excited about.  Anyway, the parcel I received made me decide to have a ‘ Monday Selection’ instead of the erstwhile ‘Saturday Selection’as I forgot to do one on Saturday and I’m the boss.

Now, I’m not a collector of pincushions or anything but I’ve had this Etsy shop in my favourites for ages and, on a whim, decided to buy one – well, two actually, as I’ve got a friend’s birthday coming up.  I read all the feedback and people have said things like,  ‘it’s the best thing I’ve bought on Etsy’, ‘thank you for the lovely gift bag’, ‘I’ll definitely be back’ – blah, blahdeblah – so I thought I’d go for it.  Well, the feedback was, if anything, understatement.  I have become a pincushion fan.  So much so that I might well start a collection and my friend will be lucky if she gets one of these for her birthday – I might have to buy a duplicate.

Can you bear this little flying pig?  and look, the little pins have clouds on top… and look at the linen drawstring bag which is lined with blue and white cotton and has a little matching image,worthy of its own listing in her shop but isn’t even mentioned!! 

…and what about this little mouse with his daisy topped pin? 

I think the lady behind lifepieces has the fairies come and help her in the night – everything is so exquisitely made and the attention to detail is amazing. 

So, if you usually get a birthday or Christmas present from me, and you are any sort of needlewoman or crafter, you know what’s coming!  Only if I can have one the same though.

Off to leave feedback of the fawning and adoration kind.
