>> Wednesday, October 29, 2008 – Sew what?
I'm mailing out my package for the pincushion swap (from the sewing board on Ravelry.com). My "swapee" loves bright colors: pink and oranges and also fall colors. My local fabric store was lacking in bright pinks, but this bright orange caught my eye. I also made a thumb pincushion to go along with the square one.
We're supposed to add extra goodies to total around $15, so I went to our local Made in Oregon shop and found some fun things that represent Oregon:
- Apple/Hazelnut Butter (Oregon is a leading producer of hazelnuts - evidently Oregon grows 99% of our nation's hazelnuts according to this site)
- Jar of marionberry jam
- A bar of dark chocolate from Ladybug Chocolates
- A couple of postcards depicting gorgeous Oregon scenes
