    To make it easier to choose something Rhonda, could you do a three word of each person's likes that are in the giftie swap so we can personalize a little better.

    Well, before I send the PM with my likes/dislikes or whatever, I wanted to share the picture of Rhonda's package to me. Love the itsy-bitsy checks on my bookmark. May have to think about using my checkbook cover for needles like Wardy...hmmm.

    Hi everyone, Just a note to say I will continue to follow this post but am sitting out the next swap. Spring is coming and that means outside 'clean up yard' from 'winter carrion'. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's wonderful creations. :-)

    Well, Wardy, if you have to sit out, do so, but don't stop sewing - that's something that keeps us all sane!

    Since the picture got lost when everose tried to post it. Picture of Chicky Pincushion that went to live at everose. The sides are paper pieced, little wool felt comb and beak and filled with cushed walnut shells to keep your sewing pins sharp.

    Wardy I got your pkg and thank you sooo much! I love the tote bag and the candy will be enjoyed for sure!! I tried to take a pic but it isn't that good. I dont' ahve good lighting in here. I should have taken a pic outside in the daylight. I will def use the tote when I go to dr appt and take things to do with me.

    BTW I love languages and I loved the back of hte candy bag LOL It looks arabic or something. do you know what it is? It says it was made in Germany but the writing is def not lettering. It's Werther's Original candy. I should have made sure that was in the picture!

    Reminder for the giftie swap!!!!

    PLEASE REMEMBER WHEN PARTNERS ARE ASSIGNED YOU SHOULD HAVE YOUR ITEM ALREADY MADE!

    I know you all would rather have input on your choices and the next swap will be more informed.
    so for this one please dont' worry too much about matching item to partner. We all love everything you make!! I know whatever you have made will be a hit with your partner!!!

    Next swap I promise we will all be better informed.

    Hi there ...I am from Australia and was told I would be welcome to join this group. I have lots of fabric I want to use up and thought this would be a great group to join.

    Looking forward to making new friends and help me with my fabric addiction ..I think I have some sort of disorder that makes me acuminate lots of fabric but don't use it. I have heaps of quilting magazines (like a bookcase full) about 25 or so huge tubs of fabric.. and tons of equipment, and have watched tons of videos.

    I love embroidery. Have a few things on the go. I need to focus on one thing at a time but cant.
    I have turned to this group to start small and also looking for heaps of encouragement and motivation as I get none at home and need to be accountable for doing something right and being respected for it. Any comments welcome.
    Hugs to all...

    I might be persuaded to make a sibing to that chicken if I had the right chicken loving partner. Hint, hint back!

    write down a bunch of ideas on slips of paper and put them in a hat and draw one out. Then make the winner!

    If you don't like the idea you draw just tack it up and throw darts at it and forget that idea!! LOL and draw a new one

    no seriously you could keep a list of ideas as you come across them and keep that handy to choose from or throw in a hat if you like.

    Rhonda I think I would like to make that pattern too. It would look great as a runner as well which is what I might do.
    Annaquilts I would like to make something too but don't know where to start....until now maybe.

    Ah... the pattern is easy to work out from the close ups....I might give it ago.
    I also like the idea about keeping an ideas book. Thanks Rhonda you are very inspiring.
