    Hi Everybody,

    You should all have your partners by now.... If you have not received a partner tonight please let me know asap as that means I have gone wrong somewhere.... which I can tell you is easily done - LOL LOL.

    Please guys - remember to post on time and let me know when you post and when you receive.... just a quick PM will do. Also, please please remember to put a note in with your needlecases as this is a secret exchange and not everybody sends to the person that sends to them!

    Finally, please thank your sender when you receive your needlecase... it's just plain old fashioned manners to do so.

    Hugs and have a fun exchange

    Caroline

    Looks like I'm heading back out, tomorrow. I was positive I had one of the "ingredients" but it seems to have vanished. It's one of those things, I usually have lots of . . . and I'm so sure I do have lots of it . . . somewhere. ARRRGH!

    Yeah...my partner just p.m.ed me and got hers. She said she really liked it, i hope she did.
    I always second guess myself on things like this. I feel i do nice work, but worry if its up to others standards.
    hopefully she canpost a pi for me.
    cant wait to see what everyone else got.

    Whoo Hoo! I just got my needlecase today and it's beautiful. I've actually never had a needle case ("etui" to you crossword fans). Do I get to mention my partner's name? She's from the "Heartland" and lives in a biblical town. And I am pm'ing her to say thank you. AND she included some Thimbleberries charms (gotta love her).

    Soooo, I guess that means I'm sending mine out to my partner on Monday. To a place south of Maine. The state Jimmy Carter comes from and from one of the fastest growing communities in the South.

    Needlecase Swap

    Received my needlecase from Linnie today. It is beautiful. I am attempting to post pictures of the outside and inside. The camera never does justice to the colors. You can see that there is a bonus of goodies! thanks, Linnie I love it!

    Dh took some mail out to the mailbox, this morning, and brought in the mail from . . . ummmmm, Saturday(?) . . . and handed me a box! :::::hanging head, in shame::::: This wonderful box had been sitting in the mailbox, all that time. Anyway, I opened it and am STILL in awe! No offense, anyone . . . but I have received the most beautiful, cutest, most wonderful needle case, of all time! It's from Mary Quilting and the pictures don't even begin to do it justice. It's just the cutest thing, I've ever seen! Along with the beautiful turtle case, is a darling "baby" turtle picushion! Plus cute little scissors and a spool of thread and oh, my!!! It's all so daggum CUTE!!!!! THANK YOU, Mary Quilting!!! Take a look!

    ARRRRGHH! Well, it won't let insert pictures , so I'll try again, in a short while.

    Okay, so it IS showing the image, after it's posted. Just isn't showing, in my posting box. Here are the others.

    I also received by needlecase. My swap partner put a lot of thought into it and I absolutely love it. She said she repurposed old ties and a clasp from a pocketbook. Since the pictures won't do it justice, I tell you that there is machine embroidery in lavender on it. The basic color is brown, different shades (which is my favorite) and seed beads as center for the delicate embroidered flowers. On the inside there is a place for a pair of sissors with a lavender snap, a pocket for incidentals, a place for a spool of thread and felt for keeping the needles. I can't tell you how thrilled I am with this needle case. I only hope the person receiving the one I made likes it as well. Elayne (roserips) I hope you don't mind if I copy your pattern.
