I joined a pin keeper swap and these are the two pin keepers that I sent off. These are the two pin keepers that I received.
This penny rug is from the book Quick & Easy Penny Rugs by Barbie Jo Paquin. It was easy but not quick for me. It took me over a year to get it done. I started it last year, then didn't get it done before Halloween so it just got buried in my sewing room. I found it while looking for something else and it only had about ten minutes of stitching left to do.
Last fall I did a demo on fabric postcards with a make and take it type of thing going on and I ended up with a lot of left over pumpkins and stars. So in the spirit of trying to get rid of stuff so I can buy new, I gave some away then just kept making postcards until I ran out of pumpkins. Two went out in the mail yesterday and the rest will be used for swaps, friends and family.
This picture kind of reminds me of the - game which on of these is not like the other. But just in case you don't want to play that game, I'll make it easy, I made them all different. My personality type just will not allow me to make two things the same.
