Everyone has done such a wonderful job on all of these !! It is so cool to see all the different directions a pin cushion can go in. Smiley
Tinkerbella has been super busy with school and didn't have the time to post the few extras that I sent to her.
Although the pin cushions that I made were crafted I didn't think they had enough hand work done to be quite fair so I made her a tiny pouch to hold a tape measure in. It went with the pincushion that I made out of the soap stone oil burner from India. She had mentioned a eastern feel pin cushion.
This was my made up version of a lotus blossom and pretty much my first attempt at free style embroidery.
Hope everyone likes it.

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.

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!!

Ha!  I love the cottage!  Very nice!

Everyone, your creations are not just functional, but mini works of art.  Thanks for being so great!  (no flakers! yay!) 

I'll be organizing another round very soon since there is a lot of interest.  I'll start sign-ups in a few days, so look for it on the swap board!

^^ I'm glad yopu like your Country Cottage! Its the type of house I'd love to live in.

That house, by the way, is a little storage box for buttons or threads and things. Its not very big but its okay for hiding loose bits
