I have been collecting pincushion patterns lately and even made this biscornu:


While it isn't perfectly crafted, I think it's construction was beautiful.  I used a pattern created by flossbox.  See her creations at http://blog.theflossbox.com

Look, everyone, we're up to 12 members!  (When I first posted this I was afraid no one would sign up.) 

Welcome, everyone.  I think this is going to be a great swap. 

I'm excited we have a bunch of folks in our group who will be swapping on Craftster for the first time.  I want to encourage you all to ask questions, chat, and not worry if you think you're question is too obvious or silly.  Everybody has to have a first swap, and I'm glad so many people have chosen mine! 

A couple of tips for first-time swappers:

Read the swap guidelines (there's a link in the first post).

Communication is key!  Introduce yourselves, keep in touch with your partner, and don't disappear or you will make your Lovely Swap Organizer and your Lovely Partner Very Nervous.

Post your work in the forums!  I've pm'ed this tip to most new swappers but am afraid I may have missed a few of you.  As a partner, I love to stalk people and see what they like to make, and what fabrics or yarns and things they choose in their own work.  So I really really encourage you to post photos of your work, either in the forums or, if your feeling shy, in your Craftster gallery for your partner to see.

Make a wist.  Another great way to show your partner what you're into.

Those last two are not requirements (communication is!) but I think they'll help me make great matches, and help your partner make you stuff you'll love.

And the good news is, we have a number of super-experienced swappers around to answer any questions you may have. 

So welcome, everyone, and happy swapping!

As a person who has swapped an embarassing amount of times, I have to say that I love a partner with a good wist!  It makes stalking really fun, and it can really give you an idea of what a person likes.

Here are some pics I took of stuff I like in my house, sorry if its kinda wierd!

Number one, my fireplace...me and my husband always wanted one, and we fell in love with this, its all stone, with oak panelling on the walls...


and here's some of my favorite handspun yarn in my living room...


This is my toaster, my husband got it for me for Christmas (I asked for a toaster) and I just love the look of it!


and here's my antique turkish coffee pot, it makes awesome Turkish coffee, my fav!
They've been using this exact design for hundreds of years.

Ahh, vintage sewing machines... gotta love em!  I inherited my grandmothers Singer Featherweight.  I don't use it for all my sewing projects, but I do love it for buttonholes and simple straight stitch.  And it is so " beuseful"!


Singers are the best!

I am loving this thread!  Keep the beautiful inspiring pictures coming!

That coffee pot is gorgeous! Smiley ...and I always think the phrase 'coffee pot' is really nice and satisfying too... Smiley (I collect words and phrases that are particularly satisfying to say btw... told you I was a tad odd... ahem...)

When I was a kid I loved the word/phrase "prickle bushes."

Even though I'm super nervous about mt first swap I'm super anxious to get going.  Speaking of newbie-edness, how does one start a wist?
