Swaps sent and received

I have been oh so sick this last weekend and into this week. I am finally feeling a bit more functional. This is my part of the pin cushion swap I sent to Sarah. The flower pin cushion is sporting Aunt Gracie's reproduction fabrics al-la 1999 0r so and I included a charm pack of the same. I also made a needle caddy of wool, if you look real close you can see the bird in the tree. If you listen hard you may even hear it chirping (this only works if your windows are open and there are birds outside hehe).

Inside the needle case:: a little scissors, some needles- of course- tape measure and button pins on the wool heart.

I really like how the applique turned out! No that is not the "proverbial ball and chain" hanging off it, that wraps around the button to close it.

A closer look and the flower pin cushion....


Finally, the whole kit and kaboodle- a piece of animal fabric- with Jack in mind and a few buttons my mom thrifted for good measure. Happy swapping!!!

Jack already made off with the buttons too! They quickly joined his button collection.

Love the tree pincushion, Natasha. I was at Linda's blog and had to pop over and meet the person who left such a nice comment on her blog.
