    Lynnie, that is a beautiful needle case! Love it. Where did you find the pattern or did you design it. Jaba, I am jealous!

    Oh Ashjoy, I know just how you feel! I lost mine about 30 years ago. It was gone for weeks. I cried and cried, and begged for a new ring. My husband refused. I cried and cried. The worst part--I knew it was in the house (5 bdrs.)

    Then my girlfriend dropped her earring in the kitchen, and it slid under the fridge. She cried "melissa! I found your ring!". The only place I had missed. We had even moved the washer and dryer. Cat games! I didn't even care, I was just glad to get it back, but I never left it where he could get to it again!!!!

    Maybe you will find yours. Don't give up hope. I know it can happen!

    Thanks! I'm still looking and hope that it turns up the same way. Will do a through house cleaning moving all the major appliances and see if I have any luck.

    I could have been anywhere. Just woke up and realized it was gone. I did make a police report in case someone tries to pawn it, or turns it in.

    Ashjoy, check with your insurance agent, you maybe can make a claim on your homeowners.

    Oh Lynnie, the tubular needlecase is very cool. I had never seen such a thing either. Is it your creation or is there a pattern? You do beautiful work! Ashjoy, hope you find your ring. I lost my original diamond from my set and had it replaced with a lesser value one. Still makes me sad beause the original was unique because it had a flaw in it that I could see and that way I knew it was mine. I am working on my pin cushion for partner now. Have it partially done. I always stuff mine with poly fiberfill and add a little steel wool in middle.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Its my rendition on an older pattern ive updated. Thankyou. Ashjoy, please find your ring. I never take mine off, thats when you loose something. Homeowners in ny only covers the first $500.00. You need a rider on the rest. Good luck.call ins co to make sure.

    I love making thoses quilted roll up needlecases. I try to keep something of every color so when i get a partner, ive got it. I dont have to make you wait.
    happy quilting everyone.

    Good morning! Great weekend here in Tennessee. Yesterday did the household shopping in the morning and spent the WHOLE afternoon in my favorite flower bed. My grandmother had given me her peonies long before she passed, but I promised her that I wouldn't take them until she was gone. Two years ago I transplanted them here along with some irises from her front yard and her milk pail of moss roses. I call it Grandmother's Garden. There are still things I want to add. Every year she planted pansies and dahlias. She also always had gladiolas and sunflowers. I want to add a swing and a shade tree. Still a work in progress. Last night I made the laundry soap and fabric softener.

    Today, I am spending it inside. Got to get the laundry caught up, kitchen cleaned up and my bedroom tidied. My crafting corner has exploded as it often does when I have too many projects going.

    Enjoy your Sunday!

    I received a package in the mail and I was expecting felting needles from an ETSY store. Imagine my surprise when a woman named Lynnie who lived in New York was on the return address label. I wondered if it was possible that our very own Lynnie had an Etsy store and I just happened to select her store to send me needles. What were the chances?

    So I very excitedly ripped open the box and laughed at myself when I found the most beautiful PC and a slew of extras. Now I own a verified Lynnie PC concoction. It is so very perfect for me. Lynnie is a west coast gal and I am an east coast gal. Oceans are just a part of the lifestyle. (Hint, hint.) She also sent a Christmas ornament and a case, which I can use for rotary cutter, pencils or eyeglass case. And, Lynnie style, Hershey's Hugs.

    Thank you so very much, Lynnie. This will be the jewel crown in my PC cushion. I'll just let everyone guess what my PC looks like for a little while. I will post a photo later on now that Melissa learned how to do it. We both have a little problem about remembering how to do things so we made her write all the steps out for us.

    I'll also be able to post a photo of my first PC made in needle felting. I hope my SP likes it and doesn't mind getting someone's first try in a new technique. At least, a little bird told me it was in her favorite color combination.

    Love to all,
    Blue Cat

    I am so glad you like it. Ive made a couple of pc. This is by far my favorite design. They kill your hands as you wrap them, but they come out so nicw
    and they are even functional too. Glad you enjoyed the other goodies too. Cant wait to see everyones pictures. Sometimes i need inspiration.

    No, but thanks for asking. I just finished going thru the house with a flashlight. We moved major appliances today to look. I think it's just gone.

    -Ashjoy, did you check all the drain catches---Jay was ready to kill me but he did it. Kitchen and 2 bathrooms. I sent up a prayer for you. (Not for your ring--in case somebody objects--but for you--it never hurts)

    How about heating vents, if you have those? Rings are so tiny. Do you have cats or dogs? Vacuum bag? I am trying so hard to remember all the places we looked. Or missed--like Cat and Refridgerator Duhhh--

    Love ya, girl

    Lynnie--can you tell Laura was excited? She hauled me out of bed to admire her goodies. Which I did, but unlike her, I did not forget who lives on the east coast and who lives on the west coast--which I found hilarious and will have great fuel for teasing for a while. Esp since we are in sight of the water, or would be if we weren't surrounded by trees.

    I love my trees. I have gadzillions of critters for neighbors, and they all do their best to eat out of my bird feeders. I use a food with a lot of sunflower seeds, and even the deer will come for it, and yes, they can eat out of one of my feeders. The raccoons just come and bang on the sliding door.

    Lynnies treasures are perfect in every way. Laura loves shells, and there cannot be too much blue in her life. Ask me, I know.

    Me? I like green.

    The photos will be up on Tuesday. Sorry for the delay. I have a great cheatsheet from my throroughly modern niece, but there is one step I am messing up, and some how I am switching the file from jpg to html when I load it. I can't get the screen to let me upload.

    So niece will be here on Tuesday to take Laura to grocery store and I'll get straightened out then. I will have all the pix ready to go so all she has to do is walk me through the computer part.

    I am having so much fun with this swap. I think we should keep it on here permanently. Did you here the loud thump? That was "The Queen" falling over in a dead faint at the thought of all the work she has had to do.

    Sorry Tracey. I just got carried away.

    Sucia, i didnt want to be the one to correct the "coasts" goof.
    My grandma used to drive down to new york from flordia. Then drive up to florida from new york, so i got what she ment.
    so glad she liked it, and you also. I always question my work, and my friends say its nice, but you know how it is. They are your friends. They're supposed to say its pretty or nice. Thanks for posting pics for me. Since i cleaned up my room, i cant find my gifties, so gotta make more. Happy quilting everyone. Have a great day.

    I am thinking of taking up a permanent spot for this swap To much fun! All I need to do is tweak my spreadsheet a bit. I forgot about allergies until I started swapping a a few got out, but got fixed in the end.

    I had to take a sick day today. The pollen has me all stuffy and feverish. I have Bible class later this evening hope to get there but we'll see.

    I went to Joann's today to look at some fabric in a particular
    color group and spotted one that I just knew would be perfect
    for my needle case partner.

    Well let me rephrase that I HOPE she will like it. I even found an
    awesome pattern that I am going to make a few small tweaks to.


    My Pincushion partner well she likes the same color as my needle
    case partner, just in a different shade/hue of the color.
    Louise - Ya-ya to Zachary April 13 2015. I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world. Also collect handmade pincushions, sewing/quilting themed fabrics, and fabric in general.
