LindaLinda's block package wasn't really squishy, and I didn't know why until I opened it. She sent me the cutest litte pincushion in addition to the blocks. I've been looking at patterns for a new pincushion lately, because mine is in pretty sorry shape. I've had it since 1968, and it's the only one I've ever had that was actually mine. It lost its strawberry on top many years ago, and the leaves also wore off years ago. It has holes in it, and the fuzzy velvet finish has been worn off in several spots. It's really pretty sad looking. So the pretty new pincushion will make a nice replacement for this one. Thank you Linda!
