Allie Came!

Last month (one the same day that I had my giveaway) I was lucky enough to win an owl pincushions from Kimber of Heirlooms by Ashton House, and it came today!!

Allie the Owl is 8" tall and is made from beautiful wool fabric. I have never had a wool pincushion before and it is amazing how easily the pins slide in. It also has a great little pocket in the front to hold scissors. It is so beautifully made and looks fantastic on my old sewing machine table - I know I will really enjoy using it! Thanks Kimber!
Kimber did mention in November that she had some kits of Allie for sale.
Coincidentally Kimber is also the designer of a bird pincushion that I made in the summer (and we both started life with the same last name - and it is still mine).

Isn't is wonderful how they all get along!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Congrats on your adorable win! My favourite pin cushion is made of wool also, and the lanolin keeps the pins from rusting.
