    Welcome to June's swap!!! Found my pincushion pattern today. I just have to shrink it. It is really supposed to be a pillow, but I fell in LOVE with it!! I am still searching for my needlecase pattern. May just have to come up with something on my own. We will just have to wait and see.

    I completed my first pin cushion today! Made a pattern I have been wanting to try for a long time and was to scared to. Well I pulled up my boots and made it! It turned out better then I expected. Now for the second one. I am not sure if I want to make two different pincushions or make the same one twice. I might just make a bunch and go from there since I do have time. Is there a size limit on pincushions? Because the one I just made is huge!

    Sent in my PM and pulled fabrics this morning. I am not a traditionalist, so even tho' we are to use red/white/blue, I won't be doing anything like a flag. Too simple! Way too many ultra cute pincushion patterns out there! I think this is going to be too much fun!

    As tpo the addiction -- I'm getting there, Tracy. Two friends gave me pincushions for Christmas and looking at all the adorable patterns, I want to fill up a shabby chic nic-nac shelf my late DH made for my sewing room.

    Those are so cute! I had already picked a pattern before I realized there was a theme. Red white and blue isn't my thing, so I think I will sit out this round. I must get a picture of the cat, as he has stolen the pincushion that my partner last month made for me, the little kitty, and is carrying it around like a kitten. This is after i'd hidden the mouse as I was afraid he'd swallow a pin or scratch himself stealing it off my sewing table.

    If I had more time, i'd do it anyway, too. But I'm going to be really pressed for time - trying to get all 1500 squares cut for a swap this weekend, and make something for my secret quilter for that swap.. I haven't touched my machine since I finished my last needle book! Going to make a few pincushions so that when we have another round, I have some made!

    quiltingdragon,

    i sure can relate to your conundrum with the cat. my cat stole both the pincushions i was making for the may swap. i found the one that was well started, but i did not find the one that was finished! i will start over, but i am determined to finish them both. i feel so sorry for my partners, but i told both of them that it will be worth the wait. I hope they agree.
