The Pincushion Exchange...

...and here is the one that I brought home. Isn't it adorable? I can keep my scissors and bobbins and extra needles in the pockets and put my thread clippings in the bag....or I guess I should say Kassidy can, because she fell in love with it when I brought it home and put it next to her machine!
Below are pictures of all the other pincushions there....(except the one I made from yesterdays post).....enjoy!













































Isn't everyone so talented? It was really fun to see what everyone came up with.
I had another exchange 2 days later with my Yo-yo Mama's. We exchanged Hot Pads for our Christmas party .....
I'll show you the one that I made tomorrow.

What a fun idea to have a pincushion exchange at Christmas time with your group. They all turned out so nice, and you can see that a lot of effort went into the construction.
Guess what I have been doing the last two days? Making pincushions!

This was such a fun day! We are lucky to have so many talented women in our group. There is nothing better than being with people that lift and inspire you. Thanks for being one of those people!
I still love that darling pincushion you made!

What a fun exchange. We did an ornament exchange for a group I'm in at American Quilting. My favorite is the one you got and the Christmas one on the mini cake plate. Very cute!

Nanci said...

So incredibly creative! So many individual thinking people out there!
Wish I'd thought of some of them, but then, there is only about 3 friends I know who would know what they were!
I gotta find me some friends!
Happy New Year
