My open yours too
package came at long last!
Way back in November, I made the above pincushions (and my first linen calendar) for this opened-ended swap hosted by Dawbis
. (I was part of round 12.) I had a really good time making them, I think largely because each one was small, and they could be different, so I got to get out some previously unused, but very fun, fabric and play around with it. During that time I was also still taking the upholstery class, and I think that influenced the more tailored aspects of the cushions, like the blue piping on the one tree cushion. I have more pictures of these pincushions on flickr
And I got soooooo much. I took a picture of everthing altogether, and then realized that bekka's
hat wasn't in it because I had been wearing it. See? I like it.
Then all these things: Moon pencil drawing from barbara, door knocker from shakty
, beautiful handmade collage book from annie
, sweet clay owl from amanda, little monster prints from zara
, fairy sketch from larina, and wonderful appliance notecards from heather.
I've got a good group for the redwork swap
, but it's still open through Monday if you know anyone else who'd like to join in. Beebs and I are also gearing up for miniswap
. Beebs has been dying for a swap of her own. We are swapping with kristin of honeyflake
and her daughter. Should be good!
