Pincushions, continued.........


I thought I'd dig up a few more pincushion pictures...I thought that any of the newbie collector/swappers out there might need some inspiration....This cute flower is made from woolfelt with some buttonhole stitching and some beading. This Mary E pincushion is one from a swap, but not in my posession...anyone out there have one I can get my hot little hands on?We have some roosters, rolling pins, mice, cats, watermelon slices, pretty fabric flowers....the list is endless. Now, don't ask me how "spidey" got in the mix....I'm thinking this picture might just be Robin's or Michelle's and someone...I don't know who that would be, but someone sent a spidey to visit and they put him out as a "watch spidey maybe?".

So, if you're joining a swap or just want to start making and collecting them and need some inspiration, just look here and lemme tell you, the internet is a wealth of information on pincushion patterns. Ask me how I know that... LOL

Peggy, in looking at your picture, I realized I forgot to photograph some of my pincushions. The chick, bunny and little box with puffy lid are all sitting around my sewing room and not in my pincushion basket. I might "amend" my photos. :o)

You have an awesome pincushion collection Peggy! That spidey is just creepy though! How dare he walk all over those precious pincusions!
