Wow!  What a swell pin cushion  Cheesy

Seriously I really do like it a lot, (had it throw in swell with all the 50's/kitchy talk) it looks like you quilted it!
Where did you find the wooden spools?  I'd like to experiment with some but have no idea where to find them.....

i have a box of random things from when my grandma moved!  i found the spool in there and went with it! 
i had seen the idea somewhere a long time ago...but i cant recall where....  Cheesy


Now for a little business:
only 6 more days of crafting time left!  i have updated the information in the first post of the other thread...if anything is wrong please let me know! 

I need EVERYONE to CHECK IN with me and let me know the status of your pin cushions...go ahead and do it in the other thread rather than pm me!  There are a couple people that havent communicated at all with their partners or with me....i NEED to hear from you ASAP.

if you foresee any problems, please let me know as soon as possible!
if you havent heard from your partner or they havent communicated with you, please pm me right away!

thanks for all your awesomeness and the super cool pin cushions!  cant wait to see more!

What a cute pincushion! love the fact that there's somewhere to wrap your extra floss/thread.

Well, just received message from my partner that she received. I'm so happy after the worry of not getting a tracking #. Here's a pic of the pincushion bag that I made for her. It cinches up with the ribbon. I'm so happy she liked it.

the pink inner lining was embroidered on with individual pockets to hold small scissors, thread ets. The pup in the middle has a beaded collar. Her name was embroidered on the bottom, and there were also shrinky bone pins, poo pins, and a " mini me" pin. Okay, I won't bore you anymore; I was just so happy that my first swap went well...on both sides! Smiley I'm ready for another!

OK, so I won the swap lottery (LOL).  Shylitlegoddess also sent to me.  So, in all, I come away with 3 pincushions.  Crafty karma has clearly come my way  Grin.  Anyhow, look at the superbly awesome pin cushions that she made for me...

1) because I love monkeys.  My daughter tried to take him as soon as she saw him.  He has magnets and a storage ear for needles.

2) because I love the human brain (I studied brainwaves of hyperactive kids for 5 years)- a wrist cushion with a Freudian (my hero) saying...

What great detailed work!  Thank you so much Shylitlegoddess, the craft gods and goddesses are smiling down on you and good things will surely happen  Grin.!
