Pincushion Swap

About a month ago I signed up for a pin cushion swap with Linda. I had quite a time trying to decide which pincushion to make. I had these supplies picked for one pattern. I really wasn't sure if this was the one so I kept on looking.

I picked out more fabrics and supplies, and I felt even more unsure of myself. At this point I was very stressed and wished that I had not signed up for the swap. Does this happen to anyone else? This was my first swap. At this point I had promised myself that this would also be my last one. I was really nervous. I had worked myself into a real snit. I finally decided to use these supplies.

I said to myself, put your big girl panties on and deal with this!! So I did. I made this pincushion.

It is now sailing across the sea to its new home in .... I will let you know when we chat soon!

OMGosh!! Poor Darlene.

A short time ago I printed out all of the names for the give away and added some twice for posting of the give away. My granddaughter drew the names from a bowl. I posted the winners and came back to pick up my mess and throw all the little papers away. OMGosh!! When I got back I found Darlene laying on the floor!! I can't imagine what happened to her. I am so sorry. Darlene if you will send me your address, I will get something off to you. I hope that you are ok after your fall. I almost stepped on you though, then you would have been flat Darlene. I will chat soon.


A Bump In The Road. AND finally a winner!

Hi everyone. I can not tell you how sorry I am to be so late in this giveaway. My sister has had some problems with her health issue and we have had to do the testing over again. Her bone marrow is not making blood. She is weak and very tired most of the time. She got two units of blood last week and is scheduled for more blood work this week. The Dr. is a bit baffled by this. He is consulting the DRs in Vermont. He says that this is just a bump in the road. I pray that he is right.

On to the give away. If I wait to post pictures, it will be another month sooooooooo.... Colleen is the winner. She did not mention seeing my giveaway on another blog sooooooo. We will have two winners. The second winner is Julie. If you girls will send me your addresses I will get your gifts off to you. I will chat soon.

I am sorry that I have not gotten back to you before this. My intentions are always good. I am really not sure what happens. I believe that someone or something stole several days from May this time. June 1 st! How can that happen??

I am shocked by the response to the give away. Thanks to everyone that left a message. And thanks to everyone that linked to it. You will be entered twice. I have found several new blogs to visit. I am very surprised my the number of people that have no reply. I am sorry, but if I have no way to contact you, I will not be putting your name in the draw. I have sent an e-mail to everyone who entered. If you have not heard from me you are a no reply. I will give you until Wednesday to get back to me. I will have pictures at the beginning of the week and will have the draw at the end of the week.

I have signed up for my first swap with Linda. It is a pincushion swap. I am excited and I am looking for the perfect pincushion. In an earlier post I posted a picture of some of my favorite pincushions.

I am not sure it I want to make one of these, or if I want to do this one,

I think that I just might keep looking.

I will post a picture of the giveaway at the beginning of the week. I am off to try and catch up on my BOM's (a lost cause). I will chat soon.
