And, the winner is..........

Hiyacinth......who commented:
"Well, since this is a dream, I'd like to go to Pour l'Amour du fil in France -- see the show, shop     and take some classes.  Or, if that doesn't work out, how about a retreat in Australia?"

Congrats, Hiyacinth, I like how you think!  If you're gonna dream, why dream big!!  I'd love to go to those places, too!!  Please email me with your address so I can get your Buggy Barn T-shirt on its way to you!  

My thanks to all who took the time to comment!  I L.O.V.E. reading your comments each and every day, and you had some wonderful memories to share.  

I'm thinking it's time for a bit of.....

1800's Trivia

Do you know what a "Pin Poppet" is?

A Pin Poppet is a type of vintage pin cushion whereby the cushion is held within a container that has a top or lid, which unscrews to reveal the pins inside.  Kinda cool, huh?

See you tomorrow for another block in my Nabby's Dowry Sew-Along!


  1. I always thought Poppet was a fond way to describe someone? I believe Robbie Williams said it when he was Mrs Doubtfire.

  2. I like the idea of a pin poppet - then your pins could travel and not be pulled from the pincushion by the vagaries of life! Thanks for the trivia bit!
