Klaws, your mini's in a mini quilt for Likethedog is so cute. It depicts something we all remember from our visits to the fair.

Oh my gosh Klaws, you did a fantastic job on that mini quilt, it's just darling! I adore all of the quilts being swapped, each one is cuter than the next.

Karen that is such a pretty mini of minis you made Likethedog. Where in the world did you get such little clothes pins? I can't see it that close are they real? lol.... Great Job!

Yes, Susan, they are real. You can buy them in Michaels. I wasn't sure how the clothes pins would fair going through the mail so I sent some extras just in case. By the picture it looks like a couple got a little askew. They need to be straightened out. The clothes pins are stitched down but the little quilts are not. They can be moved around. The blue ribbon has a pin back on it so that can be moved also. If everyone is wondering where I got the idea, here is the picture.

The tiny clothes pins came through the mail just fine -- a little askew, but not broken. I righted them. Actually, I hadn't noticed they were askew -- that's how clothes pins look when I use them, ha. (My grandma hung clothes on the line when I was little. What I've used them for in recent years is pinning my music to the music stand when playing outdoors in the sax section of a big band.)

My mom used clothes pins even when she had a dryer, because she liked that fresh smell. I have used them too. I use them for closures to bread bags etc. It's just so easy. lol....

I received my mini today from my swap partner Starla (Likethedog). I absolutely love it. She did a fantastic job. She also included some plum jam and plum sauce that she canned. They won best of show at the county fair. Congratulations Starla! I can't wait to try them. Yummm!
