I received from Troublet! When she claimed a pin cushion for me, I got very excited. I just want to show everyone what my old pin cushion looks like first.

Old pin cushion:


It was made from an old ribbon roll, painted black with stuffing and fabric shoved down in the hole...it works, it's just ugly.

So, this is what I received:


A wonderful pin cushion and the exact yarn I've been needing! The easiest way to get my boyfriend into crafts is to make something based off old video games, adult swim shows, or his sports teams. And since I also love purple, I've really wanted to make something in Ravens colors. These are perfect, and they're wool so I can try some felting.



The pin cushion is closer to the colors in this last picture. (It's been rainy and our indoor lightly isn't that great, so sorry the colors a bit off.) It says "live, love, sew" along the outside.  Cheesy The size is also very nice. It's just slightly bigger than my old one. It's very cute, and I love all the stitched details on it. Everything is great! Thank you Troublet!

More great packages!!

I'm sorry that I haven't updated anyone yet... I ended up having to take my son to the hospital and we had to stay the night and whole day yesterday. I didn't have access to internet except through my phone so I was only able to read posts and not update anyone!

I have an appointment in the morning and after that this swap is my top priority to get straightened out and updated!

Also just to make sure I have gotten all messages, those people who are non-bday swappers, who has received their thank you cards? If you could PM me that would be great! Thanks a ton guys!

Aww, poor little guy Sad  There's been a rash of sick children on the swapping front, I had a recent swapper drop out of my $4.95 for her little girl going to the hospital.  Hope he gets better soon!

I received from SAHMama!!!  I also just happened to be wearing a lime green dress today, so it worked out well for me to put my new apron top on over it to model an action shot Smiley  It's a PERFECT fit too, and I asked her to make it able to fit smaller as I continue to lose weight so I can wear it until I just can't anymore!

   

I got some of mine and Nicky's fave candies, too, Skittles and Starburst Smiley  I'll have to ration them so they last longer!  Thanks again!

Lime green is one of my all time favorite colors!  What cute owly fabric!  Congrats on your weight loss!  Good idea to make something you like one size smaller...great incentive!

slingmamma--hope all is well with your son...I agree--there has been a lot of illness in families from the various swaps and messages I have seen!  Take it easy out there, everyone!
