My Newest PinKeep

TaDa~here's my newest PinKeep.. Whimsy
Cushion measures 6 in by6 1/2 in..nice size to use..Slipper is 3 1/2 in..I created the slipper by using wool for the slipper,I then hand sewed it to the cushion...I hand sewed the vintage lace all around the cushion, Had to have a touch of vintage:)

the tiny rose bud is also hand sewnon..You know since this pinkeep is for a pinkeep swap I thought and thought and thought some more, what to create for my extremely talented partner.. once I started it was like I was on roll and just didn't want to stop! What fun!
have you ever freaked and asked your self why do I sign up for swaps???

Gosh golly..it is like right away you step back and look at your creations and then think about who ever your partner is,Right away you think "Oh gosh nothing I create is good enough"!!

But I stopped and sat back and really thought about what a swap is..It is to be FUN!

Swaping is different than creating some thing to sell though you always do your very bestest! But when creating for a partner..it is more personal ..You think of the person NOT just their talent but the actual person,Example:When I started creating this pinkeep I did think about my partner, who she was..her beauty inside and out, her likes, as I kept sewing I realized what a amazing lady she totally is not just her talent,What thrill ..I was making her some thing from my heart, though we are miles miles apart i still know her and she knows me,and a bit of me is going to her actually! All the sudden the swap made me feel like a kid and excited!whoohoo

I am ,sending to her and she is sending to me both of us has a bit of us in it.. see its our hearts we sew with!
