....In fact, an excellent trade.
One of my New year goals was to sort out my stashes of stuff and donate, sell, or otherwise get rid of surplus items. So I came up with this huge bag of trims and laces and scraps of ribbon, embroidery floss and other things I simply was not going to be using at all. I didn't want to throw it out, or donate it to Goodwill, so I posted what I had on the Farmgirl Connection Barter. I soon got an offer for a barter from a fellow Farmgirl in Texas.
She makes tote bags, aprons, and................ these pin cushions.
I opted for the pin cushion. I have tried to do this with a tea cup of mine, and got nowhere. I wasn't expecting to get a pin cushion from the barter, as I have one I use and love; but when she offered this, I couldn't say no.
I got to choose from a selection of tea cups, and fabrics. It came with all the cute pins and buttons, too.
I think I made an excellent barter. Thanks, Victoria; if you're reading this!
And by the way - I bet I could connect you to her if you want one of these for yourself, as I believe she told me she sells these.
I also got a hanky from a fellow Farmgirl this week, as part of a hanky swap I participated in. See what fun the Mary Jane's Farm Farmgirl Connection can be? You seriously ought to join.
Have a great day and come back soo, 'hear?
