Pincushion Swap FUN, FUN, FUN!
I made this pincushion for my secret partner. I found the dress form pincushion pattern online when browsing the web and thought it was so adorable, I just had to make one! Of course, I now must add it to my project list of things to make for my sewing room LOL. I had such a great time making this pincushion and hope that my secret partner enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for her.

Happy Mail - YIPPEE!
I arrived home Sunday night from the Merry Go Round Quilt Camp held in Laughlin, NV and waiting for me were two Happy Mail Packages WOOWHOO!!!!!

One of the packages I received was from my FRIENDS Swap partner Leona . The package was filled with goodies that made me feel like I was right there with her in Hawaii. The handmade items are wonderful (fabric covered coaster, pincushion) and the felt cupcake embroidery tags are the perfect touch to the wrapping. Leona's granddaughter even participated by making a embroidery cupcake panel that was used to make the lovely red tote bag.

Leona also sent me a turtle applique pot holder kit, two beautiful tapestry panels, and some batik butterfly themed fabrics; I cannot wait to get creative! I feel so lucky to have met such a great new friend and look forward to our continued communication/friendship!

More Happy Mail!

I also received a package from my partner Carol for the pincushion swap. She sent me TWO pincushions that are so adorable and fit perfect in my sewing/quilting room - I LOVE THEM. Carol also added two additional goodies (button head pins and a Moda charm pack)!! Thanks to Kim at Creating by the Lake for hosting such a fun swap!
