The past weeks project for a swap!

The other project I needed to complete this week is for the Vintage Brooch Mother's day swap hosted by Linda Smith at a Swap for all Seasons. We were supposed to send a vintage brooch, or it could by made from something vintage, and package it up in a lovely way or present it in a beautiful manner. I had this vintage brooch frame so I took a piece of vintage hanky and placed it in the middle. Then I found this wire basket recently at a thrift store, and thought I would make a pin cushion for it to place the brooch on. I have put it all in the mail to my partner in Pittsburg, PA I love the way it turned out, and I am getting crazy about pin cushions, and vintage brooches.



Hope my partner will like her Mother's day brooch!
