Pincushions and Can We Ever Have Enough

Yes, I ask that question "Can we ever have enough pincushions?". I for one have to say "NO".

I love pincushions and have them all over the house...not as decorations though, I take one with me wherever I am sewing and kinda forget to grab it when I leave the room.
Lemme show you a picture of some of my favorites and then maybe you'll share some of yours..




These brown Thimbleberries ones that looks sorta like a flower Michelle made for a swap and for some reason I use that ALL the time next to my sewing machine and I have a woolfelt log one seen here (yellow log with pink flower)that I use on my cutting table that Robin gave me quite a few years ago. Most of these I just display on shelves in my sewing room.... I won't even count how many I have but I think when I repaint the sewing room I'm going to make more shelves to display them all on.....then maybe I'll count them.
OH, and I'll be getting at least 6 more in September because Liz from our BPF group just had a sign up for a pincushion swap... I'll show you mine when I get around to finishing them and before I mail them off to Liz.
For now, I'm off to Joann's to get more beads to make more pincushions...

Love all the pincushions...I am very boring & only have a couple of ordinary ones...I will go looking for a nice one now I have seen yours!

I don't have a lot of pincushions...have made a few but not any really "fun" ones like the ones you have and make. My favorite pincushion is the one YOU made me....the doughnut!!!

I do admire your dedication to enlarging your pincushion collection! I especially like the Thimbleberries flower. I love pincushions and thought I'd start a collection by making some, and I did make a few; but now I wonder what I'd do with many more of them, so I've slowed down.

With the swap around the corner, I just did the same thing of taking pictures yesterday Peggy. Guess I'll go post them on my blog now that you asked people to share them. :o)
