hooray, hooray...it's here!

Extra groovy pincushion from Kootoyoo
Goodies...I'm a lucky old ducky!

I met the postie on the way to my letterbox, he had fanged past on his motorbike which disappointed me..I thought oh well fingers crossed maybe tomorrow. BUT, he hopped off his bike & proceeded to walk towards our place calling out "presents, presents"! Yippee! I told him about the pincushion swap, how I had sent one that I had made & that I had been waiting on this little treasure. Mike the Postie said he was very good a making pincushions when he was a young'n. The back of the brown paper package said it was from Kootoyoo...coolness! one of my faves.


Thank you Kootoyoo for the mind blowing bucket of popcorn pincushion. I love how you have stitched together the red & white strips of fabric to make stripes, the way you have stitched the puffy white popcorn shapes at the top, the Aunty Cookie face at the base, & the real popcorn pinheads..very surreal, Salvador Dali would be proud. So very kind of you to add the goodies: love the handmade retro glasses case, very handy as I am a four eyes. The little concertina fabric covered note book is also gorgeous. Thank you x 1000. You have truly made my day.I was jumping up & down with excitement. Thanks also to Kate of foxs lane for organising this mega swaparama, my first ever & totaly enjoyable.

How fantastic. What a great pin cushion. I have no sewing ability but thought if Kate has another swap, I'd give it a crack. Is that wise?

I had to call Bren in from the other room to read him the Mike the postman story. Love it.
Lucky you to receive the Kootoyoo pin cushion. Its gorgeous! X

Oooh hooray!

I love the Postie story too.

I forgot to put little note in when I wrapped the oh-so-crafty ;) salada box. Sorry, but I'm so very glad you like it. x

PS: When I received my parcel I felt pretty bad about my awful wrap job.

Hihi!! What a funny idea..Makes me smile :)I love humoristic details like this in the interior.
Regarding your comment on my blog..
It's a good thing that you're far away.
I'm glad I dont have to fight with you in the fleamarket hihi!!
But last weekend there was about 28fleamarkets in the Oslo-area so we did't have to fight with anybody..
There was a lot of people but not so crowded.Have a nice day!
Best wishes from Kardemomme :))
