A few months ago, I responded to a post from Nessa from Nessa's Place about a Craft It Forward experiment. She offered to send out a little something to the first 3 people that commented, and I was lucky enough to be one of them! Then I waited patiently. :)
She sent me the most amazing gift!! It's a pin cushion weighted by rice that also has a felt strip for needles. Below that is a pocket where I can slip my sewing materials (no more getting lost in the couch!), and then it has a loop where I can attach a small bag for excess thread and scraps. It's perfect, and something like this has been on my list of items to make - I've just never gotten around to it and now I know why!
She also included a lovely card, some Liberty of London samples, and some Scottish candy - which I ate almost instantly so no pictures of that!
And here's a picture from her blog, which I'm including because my photos skills are lacking:
Thank you so much, Nessa!!!

Basically, the rules are this: you should have your own blog and you should be one of the first 3 people to respond on this blog that you want in. Send me your address, and I have up to 12 months to send you my own handmade gift. Then, you post the same challenge on your blog!
