Just Received Two Teacup Pincushions

I thought I'd share with you two teacup pincushions I received this past Saturday as part of a swap I was in over at Your Paper Pantry. Jonnie was the hostess of the Sew Crafty group and January's theme was to create two teacup pincushions and received two different ones back. I was greatly surprised to receive two fantastic ones in return. Oh, the other requirement was to add one stickpin with each teacup. Of course, Jonnie went overboard and sent several. LOL! But, that's Jonnie--she has such a generous heart.

The first one was made by the hostess, Jonnie, and it just reminds me of everything sweet--candies, cookies, cupcakes--and I think that was her intent. Her teacup is whimsical and fun whereas Cynthia's (further down) is more elegant. She also sent me some Valentine candies, an altered glassine bag (that hid the candy), and an eye mask---all in pink. Psst.....I think that's why she goes by "Pinkalicious"!

Look at these adorable stick pins! The teapot
and cupcake are just too cute!

And the other teacup comes from Cynthia Soto. It is just stunning. It's the total opposite of Jonnie's. The cushion is black satiny material that looks embroidered. The cup itself came from her own collection of teacups. She trimmed it with pink flower bling and a gold type mesh edging. The handle has a big pink bow with a vintage looking brooch. I'm telling you, these pictures don't do the teacup justice at all. Both of these teacup pincushions will be treasured for many years. And, I suppose you want to see what I made. Well, scroll down and take a peek.

This stickpin is fabulous! Wonder where she found
the teapot charm?
And here is one of the two that I made:

This teacup came from my own collection as well. It's decorated with faux pearls, bling, a feather, flowers, velvet ribbon and is edged in fringed trimming.

I have to thank Jonnie so very much for hosting this swap. It was alot of fun. If you're interested in getting involved in some great swaps, head on over to Your Paper Pantry and check out Jonnie's "Sew Crafty" group.

Wishing all of you a wonderful day!
