I must have just been lucky to have gotten the best stitch marker swap partners. I ended up with some of the coolest stitch markers...now all I need is something cool to keep them in. The top 4 are from Montana Mommy. I didn't realize how hard it is for me to get a really good closeup of how pretty these are. I want to wear them as earrings.
These are from Brandee....I just love how practical these are. I usually use safety pins as stitch markers and now I will have some cool ones. I have also used them to hold my seams together when making a garment. These are great.

I'm nearly done tweaking the pattern...I need a few more photos and to review it again, but I think it came out incredibly close to the original design. I decided to keep this one too and that my new thing was that if I designed something, I was keeping the originals. I might wear her tomorrow.
