Okay, pics have been uploaded, sorry for the delay skunky probs again....

Whisp3rd is awesome, she found this beautiful little vintage container and built the pincushion inside it!  And the print is darling, I love it!  This is perfect to keep all my teeny silk pins in! 


But that wasn't all!  She made me a perfect bag for shopping:

and this sweet blue pillow:

but my favorite has got to be the fingerless mitts:
I have been wanting a pair of these for awhile now, but don't crochet and have only ever knitted 3 things!  I don't know how she knew I wanted a pair  Huh but I sure love them!!

Thanks for being such a wonderful partner whisp3rd!  I loved swapping with you!

And thank you Barbolot for such a great swap experience!

So, I received from the fantastic cocorific! The package was so stuffed I almost cut something trying to open it. Need to be a little less eager  Cheesy

I need to say surprise me more often! Here be the goodies!


A fantastic beading kit for a bracelet! I must be careful and not spill all the tiny beads! And a anatomically correct heart pincushion! It feeds the medical science nerd inside me! Cheesy


Dress form pincushion! Front and back! I don't want to even use it! It's too pretty! Cheesy I just love it! Love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it. Did I mention that I love it?



A bag inspired by a painting in my wists! This is a great knitting bag! The painting on the front was also embroidered which I think it makes it look so much prettier. Now i got the painting with me always! Cheesy It's also a pocket! Note the twisty goodness at the top of the bag! It has an inside pocket with a knitting needle pocket!! Also she made it from a sweater and summer dresses!

This was a fantastic birthday/Christmas present! Thanks so very much Cocorific! You are great!

Well my excuse was that whisp3rd's b-day was this month!  I think I had more fun making the bag though! 
The dress form was very straightforward, though it involved woodworking, sanding, painting, sewing, and some gluing! 
The heart took a little longer because of the embroidery and I'm no embroidery expert.  I filled it with wool fresh from my ewe and poured in some emery sand..
I think the longest part was the embroidery on the bag pocket. 

The fingerless mitts she made are wonderful, now I want a pair in about 3 more colours!  Cheesy  And I've started filling my pincushion, but sheesh, those pins are so tiny, glad I have somewhere special for them now!

WOW!!!  Shocked  You ladies really outdid yourselves!! 
The vintage container is just so pretty and dainty -- I, too, love the print inside. 
And on the heart pincushion -- so cool! -- your embroidery looks very, very nice!  But I think my favorite is (again) the dress form -- I just love it!!
