Hi Val! At last I will be making another one of your designs - the Lilac Love pincushion and needlecase. I have committed myself to a swap on a forum and asked my partner if there was anything she would fancy, and she said she would love a pincushion. The next day I was looking through some magazines, and there you were, so I put it on my sewing desk to be started this week! I may not use the same colours though, as the swap is for anything in blue or lavender, and I have a lot of blue fabrics and felt on hand. I'll be posting photos on my blog when they are made up.
cheers!
