  26. I have been trying to post for a few days now, but my comments are not showing up. I visited all of the blogs and left comments on each. It was fun seeing the "competition" through the slide show and the blogs. I especially liked the varied backgrounds in the pictures for the pincushions, the cactus was my favorite!
