Sad Kilner Jar is Happy

Remember the sad Kilner jar from last week?
I took your suggestions on board, and now he is full of jolly buttons and bows and has a pom pom trim collar. Much better!


It is opening day for the Summer Exchange on Needlecraft Haven
I received this beautifully stitched citrus coloured Hardanger pincushion from Rachael. 
(The colours are bit brighter and more zingy in real life.)
Thank you Rachael, I love it.
I sent this felt corsage and  biscornu pincushion to Angie.
In other news, I've been doing some knitting. This little bolero is for a friend who is expecting a baby girl.
I did the newborn size and it looks so tiny, still I suppose newborns are tiny...

The jar looks great Christine. Your gift from Rachael is definitely a summer theme wih those oolours.

Newborns are tiny? Mine weren't LOL. The "small" boy weighed more than the other two babies on our ward put together! They had these little weak mewling cries while he was yelling at 100 decibels!
I hope your friend gets a nice 7lber instead.
The jar looks great with the pom-poms too.
ps I'm frantically trying to finish the June challenge so I can post a pic tomorrow.

The jar certainly looks happier, I'd be twirling those fluffy pom poms all day.
Both goodies for the exchange are lovely.
Cute baby gift,.
