    @Anna6 I really like all your projects, That needle case would come in really handy too and I think no one can have too many pin cushions. The wall hanging is really pretty. I have to come up with an idea for a wall hanging in the near future, I take part in a quilt swap that rolls around once a year and covers the whole earth!! My wall hanging last year went to Norway and I received mine from here in the U.S. I love your faithful companion too, I bet she does quality control for you too. [​IMG]

    If you or anyone is interested in the quilt swap that I mentioned above when it is time I will post the information.

    I would definitely be interested in the quilt swap you mentioned. I usually swap with people from the USA but have swapped or send to England, Australia and Tasmania.

    Ahha, I've been doing the swap Kat mentioned for longer. My little quilts have gone to USA (x2), Northern Ireland and England. I have quilts from Norway, Canada, USA and Tasmania. Hope there is Anotherlittlequiltswap this year. What swap do you do Anna6. By the way, your pin cushion fascinates me. Is there a pattern?

    Anna6~I really like your projects! Very nice work! I like your companion! It's face looks a little like ours. We have a mini schnauzer. Silver in color.

    ~Katsdar, I might be interested in the other swap, when it comes around.

    I only substituted crushed walnut shells and wool for the plastic pallets and pollyfil as they work better for pincushions.

    Thank you for your kind words happy chicks. Aren't those little dogs fun? Nina is a Havanese. It is a Cuban dog. Do you have a picture from your doggie?

    I buy them at the pet store. It is a lot cheaper then if you buy them for quilting. It is used for bird bedding. If the pet store doesn't carry it check out online.

    This is the brand I found but it cost me $7-8 at the store maybe 2 years ago. Kaytee
