Swap Stuff

I love the mail right now.  I'm getting squishy packages full of pretty things for the Red White and Blue swap. In the last 2 days, I've gotten these pretties.
As you can see, the end of my kitchen counter is covered with packages.

Linda's block package wasn't really squishy, and I didn't know why until I opened it.  She sent me the cutest litte pincushion in addition to the blocks.  I've been looking at patterns for a new pincushion lately, because mine is in pretty sorry shape.  I've had it since 1968, and it's the only one I've ever had that was actually mine.  It lost its strawberry on top many years ago, and the leaves also wore off years ago.  It has holes in it, and the fuzzy velvet finish has been worn off in several spots.  It's really pretty sad looking.   So the pretty new pincushion will make a nice replacement for this one.  Thank you Linda!

Getting exciting now. Once they start popping through YOUR door means it will soon be time for them to pop through OURS.
