Pincushions Galore!! I am linking up with IDA'S 'PERFECTLY PLEASING PINCUSHION PARADE' - to show off my pincushion collection!
I made this pincushion for myself about 10 years ago - it was a workshop that the craft group I belonged to ran.
This one is one of my favourites - my closest friend of 39 years made it for me about 12 months ago. It is weighted and holds 'oh so many pins' - great beside the sewing machine - can poke the pins in without looking!!
This little one took my fancy at a school fete a couple of years ago.
I have had this one for nearly 20 years now - it is nice and stable and goes well in the lounge room with the other wood furniture!!
One of my little pincushions that lives in one of my sewing baskets and does a bit of travelling.
Another special one - a felted ball with butterflies and flower felted in. Another gift from my closest friend - she brought it back from one of her trips to America!
This is my own creation and it lives in another sewing basket! I made the felt by hand and then embroidered it.
This little handbag I bought for myself - it just took my fancy when in Canberra one visit - plenty of room for lots of pins!!
3 Little Cupcakes. Karah my grand daughter made the two on the outside and I made the one in the middle - I will NOT be making anymore - too damn fiddly and time consuming!! Karah had fun making them with her best friend!!
Another of my favourites is this one that was a swap gift. A 'Skinny Pinny' - made from flannel and beautifully embroidered - it lives in my big sewing basket and also does a bit of travelling!!
And this one was another whimsical buy - a teapot that the lid lifts up and there is room to store your needle thread and little scissors!!
I think that will do for this linky party!!! I have made a lot more pincushions that I have given away and I know there are several more that I use - can't think where they are - probably nesting with one of the many UFO's I have!!!
NOW......... off you go over to My Sister Made Me Do It - Ida's blog and check out the links to some lovely pincushion parades!!
