I'm meant to stick pins in this?

Last week the very talented Catherine (of Cat and Vee - who run an amazing etsy store together) ran a little giveaway on her blog and Facebook page, and I was lucky enough to win :o) I 'met' Cat this year through the Aus Mod bee, and have been following her blog ever since - she makes seriously gorgeous stuff.

My parcel of total awesomness arrived today, beautifully wrapped with the most awesome Cat and Vee postcard.


Honestly, how am I meant to bring myself to stick pins in this beauty? The photos I took of the sides came out even worse than this one - but they're just as awesome as the top :o) You can see some excellent photos that Cat took instead if you like ;o)


The fabric wasn't actually part of the giveaway - I asked Cat if she would mind getting me some from her local Spotlight, and she very kindly obliged to be my fabric mule. No idea what I'll use it for, but I am completely in love with it's selvedgey gorgeousness :o)


Thanks so much Cat, I am completely besotted, and feel like the luckiest girl in the world right now!

xx Jess

What an adorable pin cushion! I wouldn't be pinning it either! And it looks like its time for a trip to Spotlight- I haven't been for AGES!

Oh no, no pins, you'd end up voodooing them!

Such a cute pincushion - I wouldn't be able to bring myself to stick pins in it either:) Love the selvedge fabric too!

oh yay awesome Jess, thanks so much for such a lovely post!!

So happy the pin cushion and fabric (always happy to be a fabric mule!) arrived safe and sound. Maybe start with sticking pins in Curly Pops Cam's gorgeous fabric and leave the gnomes and peg-dolls pin-free :-)

So happy too that the sweet little pin cushion will be in such a fabulous-sewing-home.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the fabric - I haven't cut into mine yet - no plans yet. Cat x
