Wow! Thank you all so much for your helpful comments yesterday. I think I'm well on my way to getting some of those pins that I was pining over. If anyone else is looking for them too, you can do a search for crystal glass headed pins. I did one this morning and easily found several options including: amazon.com | keepsake quilting.com | joann.com
I also really appreciate feedback I received about the pincushion. Carmen, you are so right about the version 1.0 vs. 2.0 delimma!
What's that you say, a shop update? Why, yes! I've decided to get started on a few stuffed items for the shop. I don't know about you, but I'm a little tired of the current selection over there and think it's high time that I added a some life back into the inventory with some new... puppies! I hope to have a couple in the shop by the end of this week. Here's a peek at the first work-in-progress:
I'm pleased as punch to say that all of the vintage fabric swaps + the paper swap + shop orders are finished and ready for the Post Office today. Whatever will I do with myself now!
p.s. I made the "SWAP" stickers and my mailing labels using InDesign (but you could use Word) and paper that is sticky on one side. An easy-peasy way to customize any packaging.
