    I thought about posting a pic, but hate to spoil the suspense
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    With the pin cushions, I had them ready and mailed, that first Monday. As long as it's taking some of them to reach their new homes, I'd like to have the needle case ready to mail quickly, as well. :-\

    Howdy back atcha' all! I have a really cool design for a cutie needle case, can't wait to get started on it. Think I'll make a prototype to see how it looks, then wait to find out what colors my partner will like. Me, I don't really care what colors I get, it's the fun of getting someone's original artwork that counts!

    I'm a bit east of Georgetown. I wonder how many of us are from around this area.

    I'm not too picky, either. I put down three "favorite" colors, but keep remembering more "favorites."

    Yeah, I don't want to spoil anyone's surprise, but gotta kid everyone a bit. I think we will have fun seeing all the pics when the time comes.

    I agree with you June Billie!!! Though it would be sssoooo much easier for me and Neesie just to get it over with since we are so close by... just saying LOL

    Seriously, I know it will be lots of fun. For the last year, I've participated in the monthly doll quilt swaps and have ventured to the needle case exchange and the modern mini quilt for this month. I am really excited about both swaps.

    LOL That would be a lot faster! I got about half-way on one, then came up with a different idea, to try. At this point, it's anyone's guess, what I'll end up sending!

    The swaps are fun! Between waiting for a package and waiting for one's secret pal to comment, on the package you've sent, it's like being on both sides of a surprise party!

    Oh yeah!! I agree Neesie!! When I do the doll quilt swaps, I have mine made at the beginning of the month. It's just awesome knowing the package is traveling to it's destination. It's a rush so to speak! I like looking at past ideas to get insight to make one.

    Here is another needlecase I designed. Just decided to draw a sewing machine on solid fabric & use felt{not wool} for the needles, also I didn't sew in the labels just pinned them for now and made xtras for the new owner. I will keep this one since its not 100% wool. I thought this might give someone some ideas.

    Very cute! I'm still going back and forth, with mine; can't make up my mind, how I want it to look.

    Now that is an organized needlecase, Abd! Love your sewing machine. Thank you and yes it does help set off a whole string of ideas.

    About a month ago I was in a LQS talking to the salesperson about the cost of wool. She was telling me that is getting so pricey. I paid about $5 for a 5x7 piece of wool. It really limited what I felt I needed.

    Anyone have a good online source where they purchased wool felt at an affordable price? I do look for wool garments at thrift stores but they usually don't come in the array of bright colors that I love.

    Well, I got a little carried away with the needlebooks. Attached are pictures of the ones I did. I did this particular one because I have wanted one for the longest time. I always get my embroidery, applique and x-stitch needles mixed up.

    These needle books are very nice. I can see why you would want one. I have always wondered about making one of these too. Very pretty indeed!
