I love what you sent me, liebschien!  I am totally happy with it, plus the sweet soap, and the amazing pins!  I am psyched!

Umm, yeah.  So don't worry.  Grin

ETA:  And I'll post pics just as soon as my other computer (also a POS   lol)stops being mean to me - as that's the one my camera hooks to.  Of course. Roll Eyes

Wow, I need to finish up my pincushion. Maybe I'll even be able to send it out early.  Shocked

These pincushions are impressive!  You girls are quite talented!  The little teapot...  amazing... and the horses... wow...  I can't wait for the rest of the pictures to post.

myloveasdeep said I could post a pic of the pincushion I sent her.  <If you take a better pic, please post it - my lighting was pretty bad>

Yes, I did craft stalk you, but I did not know you were passionate about eggplants.  I followed your request for a fruit or veggie and lucked out   Grin  I love purple and thought an eggplant would make an outlandish and colorful pincushion.  I am sooo glad it is recognizeable!  I thought it kind of looked like a purple bowling pin.

I recieved from onthinice---how did you know eggplants were my favorite?? Did you craftster-stalk me or was it just magically great coincidence? =)

She made me a beautiful eggplant with a butterfly embroidered onit..I LURVE it! I'll post pics tomorrow..

Ok so my partner Tanya (Pink_Dinosaur) posted that she recieved her pincushions today,
and since I took pictures before I sent them, I'll post them for her!

We decided to send each other two pincushions. This is what I made:

1) Crayon pincushion (I saw in her blog that she loved to color  Cheesy )

2) Star pincushion. The "T" is obviously for Tanya, and on the bottom there is a large magnet for
    A: easy pin cleanup
    B: to hang the cushion on something magnetic (such as a dry erase board) so she doesnt lose it

I'm so glad you liked them Tanya - I enjoyed making them  Cheesy

More amazing pincushions. I can't believe that I never thought of adding a magnet inside a pincushion! I use the plastic ones all the time. This is turning out to be really great. It seems like everyone has crafted something specific using their partner's likes/tastes/desires.

Great job all!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box

The purple eggplant is so fun!  The embroidered butterfly is an added bonus! Well done onthinice!

And, XOcrazy4uXO, nice stalking job and personalization!  What a fun idea for a pincushion, a crayon! Might have to do one in EACH of my favorite colors!

I sent mine off yesterday and after seeing the AMAZING pin cushions receved so far, I'm so anxious. Bobolink, I really hope it's what you were hoping for!
