Thanks for your kind comments.

To mindboggld:  The pintoppers were made from the plastic containers for strawberries that you buy in the grocery.  After you cut out the big top piece, sand it on one side, draw on the sanded side and bake for 10-15 seconds in a 350 degree oven (just keep an eye on them and watch for them to straighten out again).  Works just like Shrinky Dinks ... only cheap!
WHOA!  What an awesome idea!  I'm all over it.  I even have a strawberry package in my fridge (that's about to be emptied!) Smiley

Man, I don't know what kind of strawberry packages you guys get, but ours are thin and flimsy, not like the strong pin toppers Stella made. What do your strawberry baskets look like?

I finally managed to get a picture!  My camera has been dead for days.

My partner completely spoiled me.  The cup and saucer reminded her of my blog.  And it is so fitting!!!   She did a awesome job.  I can't believe she's a first time sewer.

I'll let her post pics of the pincushion I sent her, but if you're really curious you can view it on my blog, http://waitingforwonderland.blogspot.com!

Thanks again, dancingqueen73!

Hey ladies!

Sorry for the late posting.  Behold the lovely teacup pincushion I received from nezumi_chan!  She really was thoughtful in creating this and combined my love of tea and lilac and lavender.  Thank you so much nezumi_chan!  I love it and your pincushion is actually in mu chine closet right now because it is so pretty!

Thanks for the sewing support, PerachYafeh!!!

 Smiley  I had a feeling the buttons would come off of the pins during transit.  Oh well.

I'm glad you like it!!!

Hey, everyone!  All swappers have sent and received -- already!  What a super-speedy round!  Shocked

Thank you for being such a lovely group of swappers, and for making this so easy and hassle-free for all involved.   Kiss

I'd be happy to host yet another round... if/when anyone's interested! LOL!
