Pincushion Swap and Angel Swap

The pin cushion is for my partner in a pin cushion swap on an online group. The top has a yo-yo that matches the bottom of the pincushion and a pretty jeweled button. It is tacked to a candle holder. I added a few fat quarters to help steady it in the box. :) Edit: Monday,the 6th. I received Connie's pin cushion today. Here is her pretty one for me.
The bag and other things below is what I made for my partner in a secret angel swap. I made her a travel kit consisting of the tote, tissue holder, zippered pouch, travel case for mini cutting board (included) with a pin from our quilt shop here in town and a heart shaped needle case that I designed. I also added a needle threader, 3 heart pins, M&M calender for the next year, and a pumpkin cookie! I sure hope she likes her gift. UPDATE: Sharon of Red Geranium Cottage opened her gift and said she was very happy!

Hi, Carla! I love the pincushion! I have several wooden candle bases that I bought on sale last year and that would be a great way to use them up! Thanks!Woman Called Joyce
