I received my awesome package from barbolot last week, but school limited me to Craftster Sad  She made me a fantastic pc that represents Dia de Los Muertos Smiley  (I'm minoring in Spanish, and the only reason I'm not majoring in it is because I would have to live in Mexico for a semester.  Which would mean I'd be here for another year, but I still might do it Smiley)  The colors are awesome and red and black are/were my college and high school colors Grin



I Love LOve LOVe, did I mention LOVE my pincushion!  Thank you so much barbolot!

I should have posted this the other day when I received, but my camera batteries died.   Angry  So I'm sorry for that delay....

I was totally spoiled by Calsters!!!  She said she was a beginner, but I really don't believe her.  You shouldn't either!

She sent me a huge quilted pincushion, made from amazing vintage-beach-style fabrics... one of my favorite themes!  Now all of my pins will have a home.



(She also included some of that fantastic fabric!  Sweet!)

And check this out... a surf board wrist pincushion!  I never would have dreamed up such a cool design or shape.  I love this.



I've been wanting a wrist pincushion for a long time, and this is perfect.  I love how she used a plastic band, so the pins won't be poking through! 

Thank you so much, Calsters!  This package was so thoughtful and right-on -- I love them both! Smiley

That plastic band is a great idea! For zuliblu's I just put a circle of thick cardboard in the bottom of the cushion before I sewed it together, but that's even better. Cheesy

And the idea of a surfboard pc is just adorable! I love novelty themed pincushions!

Yay!  I was hoping that it looked liked a surfboard Smiley  I had so much fun with this swap! The plastic wrist thingie is actually from a wrist pincushion I saw at Wal-Mart.  I ripped that ugly old red cushion right off, and I re-made it to include the surfboad pattern I came up with!  The way the original one was made had a flap sewed into the cushion, but that seemed a bit risky to me when pins would be used.  So I redesigned it Smiley  It took me a few drafts of a pattern to come up with, but once I had it...it was super fast and easy Wink Thanks for all of the compliments Smiley The swap is awesome!
