Back to the Blog Swap Pins made for Yuma Symposium

I have chosen to return to this form of sharing along with my facebook page.  Facebook is extremely easy and it take more effort to post here.

It may take me a while to get back into the swing of things.  Do not remember how to post images or do any of the things I did before.

 This February my son and I went to the 40th Anual Yuma Symposium held here in Arizona at the Border town of Yuma.

The Symposium has a tradition of swapping pins with others who have made them on Thursday afternoon at Lute's Casino.

I tend to start with the process of making 10 pins and usually end up with 50 or more.  This years pins were labor intensive and still I made my goal of 50 pins.

This is the sequence used to create each pin.
