BLOGTOBERFEST - Day 12 - Mixing Together is So Much Fun

We made pincushions. I want to make about 30,000 of these, they're so cute.

We gave gifts. Mine was from the very talented Kootoyoo . She made me a tonne of lovely accessories. I wish I'd remembered to take a picture before I ripped in to the wrapping as it was a gift in itself. If you want to see what I made you should pop over to Kootoyoo as she got my gift.

I bought fabric. I'd never visited Amitie before and I'm glad I was forewarned and saved a little pocket money for the visit. They have so many great fabrics. I was so very lucky and won a door prize which added another $10 to my spending money. Cool huh?

Yep, Mixtogether was unreal. I can't wait to go again. It's run by the amazing women who produce Mix Tape. If you can't get to a Mixtogether then get yourself a Mix Tape to keep you happy.

It was lovely to meet you too, Cathy and i think Kirsty's wrapping skill was fab! Do you think she'd rent herself out come christmas time? Hope you have fun with the fabrics!

What a cute pincushion. I have an old tomato shaped one that is functional but not cute. I think I need some cute accessories when I sew. Was it hard? What did you stuff it with, regular stuffing? My pincushions always feel like they're stuffed with sawdust.
