    Needle cases just about done!! Came out a lot bigger than I think maybe it should be, but is a great size to keep your hand work supplies in in your purse...Never have seen an actual needle case before..Tomorrow the pincushions finished...already cut out

    Today is the memorial service for mom, it is going to be a rough
    day for sure, but we are going to (try) focus on the good things
    in her life and (try) not to mourn as much on our losing her.

    A couple memories and thoughts I have are from when I was a
    little girl (about age 6 or so) is my grandfather on dads side use
    to LOVE my moms fried chicken. So to help comfort my dad in
    loss of mom I told him to just keep in mind she is probably up
    in heaven cooking fried chicken for grandpa as he scolds her for
    not wearing shoes.

    Have a good day everyone if anyone is interested I am including
    a link to the online obituary for my mom, but PLEASE don't feel
    obligated to click on the link. Just a forewarning though that my
    mom's wishes were to be cremated so the website link is to the
    place who is handling everything.

    I'm so glad you liked it. tried to keep in your colors, I love that small scissor for snipping threads and the tweezer for pulling said threads.

    Jaba made me this awesome pincushion. I love it! It's like Christmas when I get a package in the mail. She made me a matching needlecase too. Thank you so much Jaba! She asked me to post pics since she is still on vacation (lucky ). If you can't see from the picture - the PC is a box with the cushion on the lid. I opened it for the picture to show it off.

    Old_Rosebud so glad you like it, I had fun making it for you. Thought the box idea might be handy to keep scissors and thread in for a little storage, seems I always have the "stuff "on the end table by my chair. Thanks for posting pic of it for me

    Jaba, what a cool idea for the 'box' pin cushion. Sure nice that there are so many talented folks here.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Just a quick update.....

    Please check your inbox. There are two swappers that have not acknowledged the pm of your swap partners. Since the 10th was yesterday, and I did not receive any messages of swappers not able to swap, I am going to assume that I do not need any angels and you ARE going to complete this swap. YAY!!!! This coming Friday is the deadline to ship. Have a great week creating!!!!!!

    Hugs,

    I have not received yet but sure they are on their way. Mine were sent while we were on vacation and I have heard from one that received and she posted, ( rose box and needle case) the other has received but have not heard from her.

    I am working on mine, it's a needlecase pincushion combo. I just hope I get it to work because it looks so darn cute in my head

    Everything looks cuter in my head than the actual created item.
    I will be sending two pincushions today (if I get a lunch break that is). The proverbial 'stuff' hit the fan at work this morning so I may have to postpone the PO trip until tomorrow. Grr.

    I have been struggling with an idea of a new pincushion, but it's not coming together well. May have to move on to another idea. If I don't get called in to work this week I should have plenty of time.

    I am done with my pincushions and needle cases. Plans were to get them out today, which didn't happen as I am in the hospital with respiratory failure...they say if things go as expected, I should be out sometime Wednesday..so-I should be able to get them shipped by Friday. If not my daughter can get them out on Saturday...I better not be here that long!!

    I have not checked mail box, this weekend, will check today, maybe will receive pin cushion and needle case. Just mailed mine out, so you should receive soon. One went international.... so it could take a few days longer.

    Mailed my pincushion off to my partner. Ooops, I did not take a picture of the little cutie. Just tried out some new techniques on it. Not exactly as my mind saw it, but pretty close. Hope she enjoys it in the warm place it is going, oh, that could even be here in Washington. LOL
