    I haven't started on my pincushions yet, this weekend I will have some time to sew. I love the patriotic theme, but really any pincushion could work for this month. Just make it in those colors, and you could use lighter colors to make a softer look.

    I have already received my first firmy, from paintmejudy and she sent me TWO pincushions!

    Aren't they beautiful! I really love the hand embroidery, such patience to make all those french knots. I told Judy I had been meaning to make one of those flower pincushions, but now I have one I didn't have to make and that's even more special. Thanks swap partner!

    Beautiful work ladies! I love the fabrics on Jaba's pincushion and needlecase. Paintmejudy - the flower pincushion looks great in the r/w/b color scheme! Two lucky recipients for sure.
    I keep trying to think of a way to make a 'fire cracker' pincushion. I just can't translate it from an idea into reality! Grr.
    I love quilting - it's cheaper than therapy!

    I received these from Jaba, she enclosed a pincushion surprise, its stuffed with crushed walnut shells to keep my needles sharp, Jayla keeps trying to take it, she thinks its a juggling ball. THank you so much for the beautiful needle case, it is so pretty, my house is getting redecorated in red white and blue.

    Oh NO I wish I was that talented! I found it here: http://dollmakersjourney.com/kittykat.html I just used fabric instead of wool and I couldn't get the whiskers to work right so I left them off.

    I am still alive and kicking. Haven't gotten on the board all week and I have missed you all! This is our anniversary weekend. I took today and Monday off. Thought we were going to be able to get away, but DH's work schedule won't allow it. His company provides the trailers for the food for the Bonaroo concert here in Tennessee. He is on call should one of them breaks down so the food doesn't spoil. We did slip off to Kentucky Downs last night after dinner to play the slots. We came back pretty much even with what he took.

    I got in the mail a few days ago a package from paintmejudy. LOVE THEM!!!! Thank you!! I looked at both of them for my partners but decided on something different.

    Big surprise!!!

    I am waiting on the ones for this month, but certainly got a BIG surprise in the mail today. A very sweet angel sent me a package for my mia in April. She hid her identity very well but I see the post mark says Ohio. If this is from you angel lady, please know that I appreciate it so much. The needlecase is beautiful and I love the extra's that you sent with it and in my favorite colors of turquoise and purple. A magazine, note pad and pen, 2 FQ's and an extra blade.Name:  DSCF1426.JPG

    I absolutely love seeing all the beautiful creations!
    I received an awesome pin cushion, needle case, sewing box all wrapped into one from Mary Quilting! I cannot say how many times I have drooled over these at craft shows and online photographs and now I have one all of my own! Thank you so incredibly much Mary! I adore it and will definitely be putting this lovely to good use!

    Wendy - What a wonderful box you got. LOVE IT!!

    Dearest partner I want you to know that your pincushion is
    finished although I can NOT show you to many pictures because
    I added your name to the top of it.

    Here are 2 pictures that I CAN show off for you.

    Louise - Ya-ya to Zachary April 13 2015. I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world. Also collect handmade pincushions, sewing/quilting themed fabrics, and fabric in general.

    I received the same one..I can only describe it as WOW!! It looks so much nicer than the storage container I keep on the side table at the chair where I do my hand sewing. The craftsmanship in this was amazing! I love the way it opens up to show the firecracker--like setting off a firecracker!! I will really treasure this! thanks for posting the picture Ireland dragon--I am having problems getting pictures to load...Thank you again Mary!

    Was thinking about a summer theme like treat (watermelon or ice cream) or summer colors (oranges, yellows, or "ocean" blues, etc). What do you girls think?
