    Red face 2012 Winter/Holidays Pin Cushion Swap-Sign ups close 11/15

    What speaks winter or the holidays to you?
    Big snowflakes, cool starry nights, building a snowman, watching the wildlife, decorating with lights, roasting marshmallows over a fire, a cup of hot chocolate too!
    Here is an opportunity to use a new pattern, try a technique you have been meaning to do, or use some of those fun fabrics from your stash!
    Let's get creative and share our ideas, pictures, etc.
    Holidays theme is not required.

    *Limit of one pin cushion per person.

    *By signing up, it means that you have read the rules, and agree to follow them! If questions, please ask!

    *Please send the hostess a PM to sign up. I need your real name and address, and if you can mail international.

    *Partners will be assigned after sign up closes. Sign ups close 11/15/2012.

    *Pin cushions MUST be mailed out by 12/1/2012! Delivery Confirmation is MANDATORY!
    After your pin cushion is mailed, please also send the hostess a PM with your Delivery Confirmation number!
    Also retain your DC slip until your partner has received your pin cushion.

    *Please have your pin cushion made before you sign up. We want everyone to get a pin cushion as intended.
    If you cannot meet the deadline, perhaps wait until a future swap so you are not rushed.

    *Please use quality materials, and the pin cushion be well constructed to withstand lots of use. Those pins can get feisty!! Please, please do your best work!!

    *Communication is essential. Do keep in touch with your partner. If something comes up, and you are not able to fulfill your commitment, please let the hostess and your partner know as soon as possible! We want things to work out for everyone.
    If you don't communicate, and/or just disappear, you will not be able to participate in any of my future swaps. Negative feedback will also be given. Following through on your commitment will solve this issue.

    Let's have fun with these!

    General swap rules do apply.

    Have a fun vacation! Your own sanity and well-being comes before anything else. With the holidays approaching don't be pushed into anymore than you can handle because then it isn't fun anymore.

    I really wanted to be in again, but I have so many things to work on for Christmas, and birthdays coming up in December too. The only ones at the moment will have to be after the holidays. Hopefully next time, because I love both the pin cushions and needle books. All of you ladies have fun. I will be peaking.

    I sure wish I could make up pincushions in my head. It would sure save me a lot of handsewing.

    When I finish the pincushion I'll pm you. Have several projects I need to get in the mail first. Too bad work gets inthe way of sewing.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    I'm with you on that, Julie! I could get so much more done if I didn't have to go to work everyday. And then chauffeur DD wherever she needs to go. But, I had so much fun with the first pincushion swap I did, that I'm in for this one! I'll PM when I have mine finished.

    I'm in again, have the ideas for two different ones, so will see which one turns out the best for the swap!
    Yeah, will be fun to carry around a pincushion for each of the holidays & seasons, so I guess we'll all have to come up with more ideas! Or we could just use everyone elses & make them our own way!
    This will be fun!
