I love getting parcels in the mail...

I got into work on Wednesday last week, and sitting on my desk, was a beautiful parcel.  It was addressed to me.  This can only mean fabulous things.  I look on the back to see who it's from, and instantly know what it is...



It's an awesome gigantor pincushion from Wendy over at The Textured Leaf.  I won a giveaway on her blog a little while back, and she sent me a pincushion as my prize.... except, it went a missing in the post!!!  So she kindly made me another and has sent it over.  Thanks so much Wendy, I love it and already have it in use!


The funny thing is, when I was transferring my pins over to my new pincushion, I started squeezing my old thinner pincushion incase any needles were living inside.  I popped 12 out.  I was starting to run low on needles and was worried they might have been hiding in my carpet, ready to strike at a passerby foot.  But, they were tucked away safely in my pincushion.  Needless to say, I won't be putting any needles on my new pincushion... I would never see them again if they snuck inside!
