After Christmas it came time to open my packet of Birthday Stickpins. On CAPC it is custom to swap stickpins for our birthday. We have to make a stickpin for each member that signs up for the swap. In exchange for return postage to me Anett requested this time a biscornu pincushion in purple. Here is the pincushion I made for her for this years swap. Last year it was a Santa pincushion, also in purple.
Anett made sure that the package from last years swap reached me in time for the 28th of December and here they are. Aren't they just beautiful!
I've been told by several people that it is time for an update so here we go. Now that the Secret Santa swap on my group has finished I can now show my gorgeous gifts. We had decided that it would be a secret swap, they would know who they were sending to but not from whom they would receive. While I was trying to organize the partners I had several requests to swap with me. There was a total of 8 swappers so I thought OK I can do this, so they all got to send to me and I sent to everyone. There was a list of choices that they could request and I tried to accommodate each and every choice.
The packages started to arrive and I put them aside to open on Christmas morning, my fingers itched to open them each time I looked at the packages but my will was strong and I held out.
Here below you can see all the wonderful gifts I received. This first photo is from Linda.
