Boxes, Pincushions and Quilts for Japan

Liv and I had another lovely day last week crafting together. Here are the two tea boxes we've made.


I tried a new way of making the separators which I saw at Hilde's and it worked beautifully!






Talking about Hilde: she and her friend Hilde (yes I know, a bit confusing) are organizing a pin cushion swap. You'll find all the information here. Why not take a look and maybe join in the fun.








If you want to do something to help those poor people in Japan, visit Janet.  She has all the information needed if you would like to donate a quilt. Of course there are many organisations collecting money; but is there a more personal way of showing that you care than giving a quilt to someone who has lost everything?
