For the past couple months I’ve been participating in a yahoo fiber art group. For the month of September I committed to a pincushion swap. I’ve not yet received mine, but yesterday the one made by me was received by its new owner so I can share it now without chancing spoiling her surprise.
Earlier this month DIY made an owl pincushion. Because it was cute and whimsical I decided to make one for my swap partner. If anyone is interested in making one you can find it on the DIY blog…there’s a button on my sidebar. You can download a pattern.
I’ve not shared the darling chicken pincushion I received in the August swap…she makes me want to “shake a tail feather”. Does that ring a bell to any of you old-timers?
In a one on one Dottee doll swap I received this mermaid “Mystique” for the one I sent. She makes me smile every time I catch a glimpse of her which happens often, because she is hanging right beside my computer. Smiles are good, yes?
In another group I’m a member of we had our first swap. We did an one on one swap of triangle bags. I forgot to make a picture of the one I made before sending it on its way, but I received this one from my partner Sherry. She did a lovely job. It now holds the hard candy I carry in my purse.
Sherry also sent me what she called a container. I call it a piece of “Sherry art”. She used several wonderful techniques creating this piece. Check out the bead work, embroidery, different trims and vintage buttons. Flower appliqué’s and ribbon embroidery add to the texture and beauty of this piece. I love the precious painter’s palette pin, don’t you?
That’s all for now…
