    I think so Mary. We had a few from last month that couldn't do it again, but we also have a few newbies.

    Laurie, I LOVE the carry-all pincushion you sent me last month. I carry it everywhere with all the things I need for hand work watching TV.

    Karen I went back to get another pink carrier to make myself one and they were all out! I have been kicking myself over that one.

    Mary those are both really cute, but I absolutely LOVE the sewing machine one. Did you design it yourself???

    Yes I designed the sew machine myself. I started making them about 3 yrs ago. The chair is a pattern from a Christmas book. I can't remember the name if anyone wants to know I will go look it up.The machine is about 5" long. the little pin cushion on it is about 1/2" dia.I don't remember what the pin cush you made looks like.

    I think I got it at the dollar store, but now I am wondering if maybe I got it at Dollar General. The brain is fried, sigh.

    LOL yes the mind is definitely the first to go, I forget what is second . . .

    I actually did that pincushion in January which is probably why you couldn't find it.

    I say that an unstuffed pincushion is a good idea so that all can participate that would like too

    wow, can't wait to start....... and worry (if it'll match up to the wonderful pc's you're al making!)

    I wonder who is going to be first to mail theirs out. It won't be me as I'm not finished yet. Today would be a great day to sew but I've already been out to shovel once and since it's still snowing I'll be out again before long. It was so nice yesterday with the temp at 44. It had even started melting again.

    You know who will be the first to mail...Lynnie! She is always one step ahead of everyone else. Or should I say, two months ahead of everyone else.

    yes, mine is packed and ready to go. If we get too much snow, I will have to wait till Tuesday. they first told us 12+ then 6-12 finally 3-4" so who knows how much or if we get it. I guess it could be 12 or more or less. Going to the library to see if I can print out some things, in case i'm snowed in. we don't have a printer. took me all these yrs to get a laptop. might as wait 4 more for a printer. everyone stay warm in the snow and frigid weather.

    Yipee!!! we're getting our partners soon, can't wait to see who I get. Maybe you, or you.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    The pink pc is so handy, love the other ones posted too, and isn't that bear so cute and fun to make, I made over 50 of those one year, out of casket velvet and a little of embroidery on the leftchest of the bear. adorable.
    keep the pics coming everyone. off to the library for me.

    Lynnie, we got less ice than predicted thank goodness. still a thin layer is dangerous just melts quicker. I hope to get out Tuesday and mail also. Elayne choose the sew machine so maybe my partner will get the chair pin cushion. or maybe one of the other two I made.....hum .Have fun at the library.

    We are going to get rain any moment. It's getting dark outside, but warm. Then after midnight changing to ice pellets. Tomorrow ice and snow, and maybe some more ice. I see trees going down, no electric etc. Hope I am wrong though. Hope to do some more sewing, but need that electric, and for all to be safe. We need to go soon and pick up some meds, and a few other things, because we won't be able to later.

    So glad to have the new people join our family here. Look forward to all the new pretty pictures. Have fun everyone, and be safe with all the weather possibilities.

    I only made one bear as it was so small and hard to sew the parts on. I can't imagine making 50. I used to work in a place that made caskets. I was the cutter for the material for them to stitch. My storm is now over. I only had to shovel 2 times but it's 19 out and I just did not feel like going out today. Instead of working on my needlecase I made a wool bird that I stitched by hand. Working with wool is so much easier than fabric but I didn't like the hand stitching.
