    It's sew adorable. It's whimsical, bright and vintage. Wow, Nessie, you sure did get me. I am so lucky. Thank you again.

    Wow, Neesie, how darling. When I was scrolling down the page and saw the furbaby, I knew it had to be from you. The egg pages are so clever. Yeah!

    Just got internet back, after being without since Wed. PM. Talk about withdrawal!!! LOL

    Judith, I'm so glad you like the chickens . . . and that I don't have to give any more "hints!" Thanks for the compliments, everyone! :::: wearing big grin :::::

    Yes, the note card picture is of my Phoebe. A friend made them, for me.

    SOOOO many cute needle cases, so far!!! I see one and think, "That's my favorite" . . . until I see the next one!

    Pam, fantastic needlebook. That is such a cool idea for the thread. And, how perfect is that fabric. Your secret pal did a great job.

    I am enjoying all the different needlebooks still coming in.

    Oh, and Nessie, I am grinning ear to ear....I got to leave you your first feedback score!!

    Hello Caroline, Just saw this posting. Great fun and am I too late to get in.


    Quote Originally Posted by CarolinePaj View Post

    Our as the last needlecase was so successful I thought I would organise another! So come on – join in and have some fun.

    Okay here are the rules:-


    CONSTRUCTION:-

    1. The case does not have to be quilted, although it surely can be, but it must be handmade - not shop bought.

    2. It must be made of 100% cotton fabric or wool felt. Embellishments and pretty’s are very welcome as is applique.

    3. The size and shape of the case is up to the individual creating it, but should not be smaller than 4” x 3”.

    MANNERS: Please remember to thank your partner. Just a simple post is great. Please also let me know when you send and receive so that I can mark my records and make sure everyone receives a needle case. It would be great if you could post a picture, but if you are unable to post a picture, please ask your partner to do so. Much of the fun is seeing everyone's creations. Also, please understand that this board has members with differing skill levels and you will not necessarily be sent to by somebody at the same level as yourself...... so, love the creation you are sent, whatever the standard of sewing, piecing, quilting. We all started somewhere and the most important ingredient in our creations is love!

    PLEASE PLEASE REMEMBER TO LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU MAIL AND RECIEVE!!!!!!

    PARTNERS: You will be allocated a recipient in this exchange. You will send to them, but they will send to somebody else and so on!

    EXTRAS: This is a secret exchange so please please ensure that you put a card in with your exchange so the recipient knows who has made it. If you can, give a few details about yourself.... it is lovely if we can get to know each other a little better. This exchange is for a needle case only. It is not necessary to put other items in with your exchange but you can if you feel you would like to.

    SIGN UP: Sign up begins today and ends 8th June 2012. I’ll will assign partners as early after the cut off date as I can and I will let all participants know who their partners are as soon as possible.

    DUE DATE: The deadline for all needle cases to be mailed is 29th June 2012 so there will be plenty of time to manufacture your creation. Please get proof of posting so that we can try to trace lost packages


    Now for the fun...... to sign up please fill in these details and PM me


    1. Name

    2. Address

    3. Email address

    4. Favourite Colours

    5. Can you post internationally?

    6. Do you have allergies?

    7. Do you have pets?

    Hugs and looking forward to another fun exchange!

    So glad you like it, Pam. Hope the scissors work for you. It is sometimes hard to use them with them attached to the needlecase but I manage. Can't wait for the next exchange, Sassy

    The idea of tying the thread onto the needle case is such a clever idea.

    Neesie and Pam what pretty needle cases. The chickens with the egg pages is such a great idea. Pam that needle book with that fabric is just right.

    Lynnie your needle case has so many neat places in it. You will be kept busy for sure, and also so pretty. Someday maybe I will tackle one like that.

    Oh Nessie....I am going to rescue some fabric this week. Hmmm, some solids, and mabe a fat quarter or two. I surely do like this idea of rescueing fabric.

    Got my needlecase!

    Lynnie sent a wonderful little case. It stores a spool of thread and contains a pincushion. You can see her perfect stitches on the end, and the nice machine stitches on the case.

    CAS the needle case is very nice. Pretty colors, and your right about the pretty stitches. I tried to peek inside, but it wouldn't let me. Yeah, sometimes those files can be stubborn.

    I've been stalking this swap.. cause I'm new. LOL. This is so cute, I laughed out loud when I saw the "Egg" shaped felt for pins. Too funny. So cute... all themed.
