Pincushion/Needlekeeper Swap!

I joined a Pincushion/needlekeeper swap this fall! I swapped with someone in Australia - how cool was that!

I was a little slow getting done - back surgery was right in the middle! Depressions because back surgery did not help! But finally I got my done.

I received from Ciara (from Sidney) a really cute pincushion that looked like a cupcake and a really neat needlekeeper that was so bright and cute with the butterflies on the front.

I sent her a chicken pincushion made out of 30's reproduction fabrics and a needlekeeper that I had designed and digitized for embroidery machine.

It was fun!!!

I just read your profile. I live really close to you. I lived in McMinn Co. for 25 years. That's where we raised our children. I taught in the McMinn Co. school system for 29 years and have gone back this year part time. I am also a grandmother. I also learned to sew on my grandmother's treadle machine. Read my blog, the post about a Grandmother called Honey. It sounds like we have a lot in common. I don't quilt, though. I would like to, but with sewing for 5 grandchildren I don't have time to do much more. Julia
