I keep seeing swap buttons on blogs, so decided I'd try one. Well, I should know better. Really, I should. Its been along time since I joined a swap, and my love of pincushions pushed me into it. The swap was to send on June 27th, I think. I sent mine on the 29th of June, we were emailed our swap partner and sent directly to her instead of a centralized swap where you would send and receive from the hostess. The swap hostess was posting updates on her blog they all looked so cute! Did I mention I love pincushions? :)
This is the package I sent, pattern is from Blackbird designs. The small beehive is a needle book and the bee on string is a scissor keeper. Made one for the swap, birthday gift for my sister, and then one for myself. My swap partner is in Australia, she should have gotten it by now.
However, as you have probably guessed by now, no word from swap hostess (after several emails) no word from the partner, and no word from whoever was suppose to send to me. bummer.
