    Jean, it pinches nicely and is just so darn cute. there's a cauldron, broom, and spider web by one window, and a black cat and pumpkin by the other window, it's just so darling. I love it.
    thanks again IDQ.

    Back to the real world, now all I have to do is catch up on my sleep, and stop waking up at 4 a.m. the past two mornings and not being able to get back to sleep.

    Well, my little chickadees, looks like everything is going splendidly. I checked over the postings and seems as if most of the cushions have been mailed. One of the gals, who hasn't posted on the thread, has received one of her cushions but not acknowledged receiving it, and hasn't notified me that she sent anything. I know there are still 5 days for mailing, and hope all is well with her.

    If anyone is having a problem please let me know by PM. Thanks.

    Great pincushions everyone is making! I received yesterday (but didn't check my mail until today. ) a great package from jamimclaugh. She made me a giant turtle! Wahoo! Thanks Jami! She must have seen my post on this thread about stuffed animals as pincushions. She is so cute! See how she is smiling at me?

    I'm thinking of going mainstream for December. haven't decided yet what I'm doing. but i'll put a twist on it. can't wait to see what all of you come up with for the next design.

    Oh my goodness, look what JeanD sent me! I'm such a lucky girl!!! The Raggedy Ann and Andy needlecase is wonderful, I love it, but she also sent me some of her patterns -- there is a pattern with the wooden buttons to add to the finished piece. Love love love everything, Jean, thank you so much! And I think she made the little pins in the case, too. Are they polymer clay?

    Thanks Judy, I am so sorry I forgot to pm you that I sent it! I was watching that deadline so close that - that is all I thought of! ALL of the buttons are high fire white stoneware clay- so they ARE breakable, Yes, I made those little tiny quilt blocks for pin cushions, I have also made different shapes, like tiny apples, flags, snowman,etc. I am planning on sending them with my pin cushions. I am trying to think up some patterns for some! Glad you liked everything. I know I love mine- thanks again.

    Argentium really really did a fab-u-less job on my PC! I love everything. She made me a 'cute' Halloween pumpkin. Just a warning - picture heavy to show all the goodies. There were some dark chocolates, a cute butterfly clip, and two beautiful pins. She also sent a couple of postcards from her home state. Thanks again Argentium!

    Yes, you need a kiln and special clay. Not a cheap thing to get into, unfortunately.

    I'm glad you liked everything! I actually got your pincushion Wednesday, it was waiting by the door when I dragged myself home from campus late late that night after a stint working on homework. It was a wonderful treat after a crappy day.

    She's so cute! And yes, that is the perfect purple. I had to laugh that we both went for a witchy theme. Anyway, thank you so very much! I'm looking forward to the next time I set up the sewing machine so I can put her to good use.

    Thank you all soooo much for being so prompt and mailing on time. This month is now closed out and completed. I will be on the November swap after today. Thanks, everyone, for making my first time hosting such an easy time.
