Seems these aren't as well-known as I'd thought...
Remember this photo I teased you with before the swap began?
Well, I'm sure you've all figured out the pincushions are part of the deal, but I think what was missed here was what is attached to my scissors...
I've been schooled to call them "scissor fobs" and they're to help keep yours straight when at a quilting (or crafty) get-together.
My mom makes these, and with her help, I've made a batch and, well, spilling the beans for the reamining swappers, they're in the package with the blocks.
So it's not a string of beads to enjoy (but you CAN enjoy them and I hope you do!), it's not a bracelet and it's not an ornament (well, maybe it is, but for your scissors!)...
But if you want to wear it as a bracelet, or if you want to repurpose those beads or hang it somewhere other than your scissors, please do so. Once it arrives, it's yours to use as you see fit and I won't be upset at all if it's getting used in one way or another.
And I can rest easy now because I'm sure you all know what to do with the chocolate!
