I think I may give this a try too if you don't mind. Been a while since I've done a swap. Smile I will pm you my info.

Would it be too much to ask people to include instructions on how to make the ones they submit? From what I've seen, I'd love to be able to make some of these....

Thanks....Smile

Omma... do you remember the felt like wool one you did with the beautiful apple on it the last swap you did that you sent to me? I use it everyday down in my quilting studio. I love that!

You gals are so sweet! I love these swaps and don't want to disappoint. When I told my DH I was starting over again he thought it was hilarious that I had my own gaggle of frogs. Gaggle? Swarm? Herd? I do love them all since I've got them finished. There's so many cute ideas out there. Those roses are amazing! I can't wait to see what I get in return. I've already cleared off a shelf for them.

A group of frogs is called a bundle, a chorus, or a colony. A group of adult frogs is called an army. A group of baby frogs (tadpoles) is called a tadpool. A group of toads is called a knot. Don't you LOVE the Internet???

You make me smile! Wouldn't it be fun to have ten different frogs? I have some more cute dotted fabric and was thinking to try it too. Ribbet, Reba!

LOL, yep ladies, those frogs are too cute...a funny story about me and my best friend back in KY...we were both seperated and in the midst of divorces being final...and were hanging out @ her house on her grandparents farm...while helping her weed her flower bed...she picked up her "frog" sprinkler and said "wonder if my prince charming will come long if I kiss a frog...I giggled and snapped a photo...turned out to be a beautiful fairytale like pic...but I laughed and thought to heck with kissing one, with my luck I better kiss it and lick it...(I'm crazy like that) and I did for good measure... I met my DH shortly after that, he has been such a joy and loves my funny quirks Razz Wish I had a photo of me on that day...lol

Thank you, SavedSinnr. I thought the frogs you showed were from current participants. Love the colors on that chicken.

My mom loved frogs--may have to join just in hopes of getting a frog of my own Smile.

I have several commitments, but am planning better than before, so I should be able to make some pincushions too. Just love my pincushion collection to this point.

DD#1 has some pet water frogs. She is trying to train them Cool.

Pegsami - I'm new too and like you very intimidated with all the great talent and creativity these ladies have. Funny, I keep changing my mind on what a good pincushion would be - I guess the one that is completed would be good, LOL. Now if only I can commit on one, :-) Blessings!

What precious hearts! They do make me smile! My favorite pincushion is one made by a friend. It's a nice 4 patch and is overly stuffed. The colors are great and it's so handy to have by my side.

Have a question, SS--does each one we send in have to be the same or is it a "mix & match" if we want it to be ???

OK, Luv2---we'll just do the best we can for the group!!!

My goodness, Quiltaholic! That's absolutely amazing! You asked about a one on one swap for a frog. I think that precious rabbit is worth multiple frogs. You always do such astonishing work. I think you deserve the blue ribbon for pin cushions. I cleared off a shelf for my pin cushions but after seeing so many cute ones I now want to get a better display case.

That bunny is so cute, but I wouldn't want to stick a pin in him/her. The pins would have to go into the area around the bunny Smile.

Lindsay, your backroom sounds awesome...COOL...I have an airbed that is really comfy and it travels well...we always take it along with us to Perth when I visit my sewing buddy or to my BIL's beach house...I've decided during the summer months I'm not going to the beach again,spent 1.5 hrs on the beach on New Years day with the kids and was delighted when the men came home from fishing and rang to say they needed help with dinner...I voluntered and left Caleb to play with his cousins with his aunties...in the 1.5 hrs that I was there, with several layers of sunscreen and sitting under an umbrella with a nice sunhat and my sunnies on, I was still a red lobster and teased repeatedly at dinner Razz

I need to go in search of a good sunhat pattern with a nice wide brim...cotton would be so much more comfy than the one I have Razz

Hoping to work on a pincushion or two tomorrow, it's looking like another sweltering day!

Hi everyone,

Your swap looks great - So many fun and lovely pincushions. I would love to play. I've just started one using English paper piecing. Can't find the PM button on top though, at least with my IPAD.
