That's a really clever pincushion! I think I need to make one of those for my sewing friends!

I received my package the other day and I was completely spoiled.  Prepare to be jealous and see lots of pictures!

Miss Barbara - I love my package, it is perfect!  My avatar photo is a Beer Garden Girl that I wore for Halloween a few years ago and the green beer mug is actually a purse.  I love purses and totes so you nailed it perfectly. Grin Grin  I would love to hang out if you are ever in mid-Michigan!

First off my 'main item' - an awesome crochet purse with a fabulous lining and button.  I love the colors, perfect for the fall and I will be switching into it over the weekend.


Lining - some of the kitties look just like my 2 orange striped fur babies


Button, which is on both this and the smaller purse/wallet you will see in the next photo.  It is a cat playing with a ball of string - can it get more awesome than that?


Miss Barbara called this a wallet, but I am going to use it as a small clutch when I don't need to drag all my stuff with me.


Next are some note cards that are just perfect!


She also sent me some items that go with one of my favorite pastimes - reading
A paperclip book mark and a paper crafted bookmark.  I think these are great.



Then she also threw in some stuff for work!  I told you I was spoiled!!
A mug cozy, an ID holder and a great backpack tag that I have already put on my computer bag:






And finally - everything together including the awesome Owl note that she sent and the decorated envelope (with one of the kitties I mentioned above making a cameo).


I just can't say thank you enough, it has been a long week and this package totally made my day!

My basement is finally finished - Craft room on one side, Bar on the other side.  Why would I ever want to come back upstairs?

Miss Barbara, I love bags and purses too and I love that bag. The proportions and colors are beautiful. And those cute cat buttons--I have never seen any like that. 

And another note to Johnson.mom2two about my armchair pincushion. I am using a different patchwork square for each type of needle I use: one for pins, one for embroidery needles, one for crewel embroidery needles, and one for sewing needles. It keeps them nicely sorted.

Wow - that Miss Barbara - that is so beyond the swap expectations - you certainly spoiled your partner!

Johnson.mom2two - thank you so much for sharing the pattern - that couch pin cushion is a great idea!  It seems like a good idea for when I am beadweaving and I think I may have to make myself one now that I have seen the one you made!

I'm so sorry for being so late posting pictures of the beautiful package I received some time ago from EdelC.

She sent me a set of coasters with matching (tea)pot holder in my favorite theme (nature/trees).


They are beautifully made and have been in use ever since they came out the envelope!  

And she made me something else from my Pinterest; a tree of life pendant!


She also sent along a craftbook with very cute sewing ideas.

Thanks EdelC! (and sorry again for posting pics so late!  Embarrassed)

Now, off to finish the items for my partner in time!
