A beautiful little something

A little while ago Hawthorn took part in the Pay it Forward give away and I was lucky enough to receive this.....

 Beautifully wrapped...

 Beautifully made......

 Little pincushion!

It has a daisy motif on the top and Hawthorn has embroidered a daisy and the words Lazy Daisy around the sides. I don't know how she has found the time to do this as she is very busy putting blankets together for the children of the Japanese disaster.

Thank you Hawthorn! I am thrilled with my lovely little pincushion! xx

As part of the deal, I will give away one of these crocheted book marks to the first five lovely people who leave a comment on this post. They in turn will spread the love by gifting five people with a little something.....

Edited: The pattern for the bookmark can be found here

Enjoy your Sunday xxx
