Here's the Grand Finale to our Pincushion Swap, and its a worthy project!

I've always loved the idea of a little English cottage...and now I have one thanks to my wonderful swap partner, jpoparock!


Note the ivy creeping up the wall and the koi in my pond!!


But wait...let's see who's home...


Oh!  It's a precious little hedgehog and he has come out to play!


J also sent a butterfly pincushion that fits around my sewing machine (how clever is that?!) but I can't post a pic until my youngest daughter gets home and tells me where she put it after jacking it to play with!! Cheesy

Thank you, jpoparock!!  I truly love it!  What a great swap!!

I am waaaay behind on looking and commenting, but I'll have to get back to that later on.  Right now here's Beetastic's apron!  She requested a 50s diner theme, so this is how I started it off:


I hope you like it, Bee!  I was right bummed because I'd planned to do the neon sign with glow-in-the-dark thread, but my order didn't arrive quickly enough.  So, thinking I'd at least make it shiny, I used rayon floss.  That stuff is Evil.  Evil.  I redid several times with different stitches to no avail...it's bumpy and not pretty.  Oh well....anyone want some rayon floss?

Here's what I sent along...unfinished, and not what I had planned, but I had a terrible case of indecision. Roll Eyes


I will bind the edges and stitch the leaves when it gets home.  I had planned green leaves but then thought maybe autumn colored...see what I mean?  Indecision reigns!

I am so excited to get rockin' on the towels coming my way and mostly to see y'all's stitching in person!

I recieved from Purelectricity!!  See and ye shall desire!  (that is , if I can corral enough brain cells to figure this picture posting thing out!)

I opened the box to see:


Here's every-wonderful-thing!  (please notice the darling bag with doughnuts that contained cupcake mix, liners, and a paper punch for my littles!)


Everything was tagged with the CUTEST tags...and she sent extras!  =)
now, it's pink!  It's a needlebook!  I needed it and it's so stinkin' cute!


oh.my.  This is a beautiful armrest/pin cushion/ hold-all thingy that I didn't even know existed and how did I exist without!?  Truly wonderful!


Adorable clay cupcake earbobs (that's Southern for earrings!)  I had to tell my daughters to Back.Away.


And...a cupcake corkboard for my kitchen...with recipes!!!  LOVE!


Thank you, Purelectricity!!!!!!!!! I feel sooo spoiled!!!!!!!
