    Thank you, Lynnie. And if I am not as often lately, I know you are my #1 cheerleader and will keep the pack going! So, chatter on, ladies.

    And Dotty, yes, Holidaze -- perfect!

    this swap is such a great, fun idea! thanks so much for starting it!
    Don't feel bad about not being able to work on your swap item till the weekend. Although I started last weekend, I still need this weekend to finish.

    Did you have one in particular in mind? There's this one where the whole thing is felt:

    And this one that is more quilty in nature:

    Aaand when I'm just looking for ideas, I go to pinterest and do a search... this one is just for needlebooks

    Oh, I don't envy you that at all. I lived up in Maryland and Virginia for 10 years before heading back south to spoil my nephew and go to school.... I still find it amusing when the south Mississippi shuts down for a dusting of snow.

    lawsonmugs - I think it looks beautiful! Much better than the sleet and freezing rain most of my area enjoyed today. Of course the frozen stuff fell after we had gotten 3 inches of COLD rain.
    I don't think I will be ready to mail this weekend. Its going to be next week before I am even close to being ready. :/

    Argentium, the Pinterest site is fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Seems as if some of the gals are stressing about not mailing this week. Hey, it's not a race, you have weeks and weeks left to send.

    wow, those pics of the snow are so relaxing to look at. I love the snow too, but it can be dangerous. Luckily,
    we live in a condo. the distance from our gate to the sidewalk is about 16 inches, so tht's all we need to shovel. lucky us. or neighbors have about 15 feet.

Judy I was just hoping to get mine out early.I don't like making my partner wait til the last minute.You never know what life will throw your way when you wait til later.Everyone stay safe and warm and enjoy the weekend.Mary

    mary, I live in a condo, and my house is close to the walkway, when we put our fence up we went the farthest we could from the front door, for two reasons, bigger closed in patio and less shoveling. we kinda went over our limit by mistake, buy about 2 feet and the length by about 7 feet. we had just moved in and well, a case of beer and $50 can change a multitude of sins with the old board we had, My dh is on the board now and won't let that type of thing happen. so yes, we have a measly foot of show to shovel by ourselves, the condo does the walkway . worked out to be a win win situation

    Good news, I think...I got my stuff done, just a finishing touch or two left. Going to mail them tomorrow. Of course they won't go out till Mon, but they'll be on their way at least...

    I have to say, I'm ashamed of how un-professional they look. But they were my first attempt, and there's no doubt they're home made. I hope my partners aren't disappointed.

    peachs - I hope I get one! I bet they both look great. I love all the pincushions I have received. Pretty soon I'm going to have to dedicate a bookshelf for them all.

    The reason I joined this swap is for the homemade items. I love homemade. If we wanted perfect industrial made we could just go to the store for p c. or nb. This is just my opinion. We seem to all worry about this.Lol. Just enjoy the swap. That's what it is about. hugs Mary

    I know you guys are going to be jealous of my pincushion. I finally received one of lynnie's creations and I got the 'santa belly' PC she made. It is so nice that my pitiful pictures just don't do it justice. It is red velvet with glittery snowflake designs. The belt is black velvet with a blinged out belt buckle. Then she made a reindeer pin, red/green glass bead pin, and a 3rd pin with red and green small glass beads. Thanks lynnie - I absolutely adore it! These are all uploaded to my Swaps photo album if anyone want another look at all the great PC's I have received.

    Rosebud, Lynnie did a great job and I love the pins. She will have to show us how she made them.

    the pins are easy, just get long pins, I got mine at michaels in the briday dept, and string up your beads and crazy glue them in place,
    so glad you liked it.You know, we are all our own worst critics. We always question our own work.
