There's a fun little Pincushion linky over at mysismademe this week. After seeing a few other posts that had linked up, I thought it would be nice to join in myself.
I'll start off with two pincushions made for me by Mum....
The one on the left was the first pincushion I ever owned...as you can see from the photo below, Mum made it way back in 1982! Many a moon ago. The one on the right was made more recently; both show how she likes to embroider :-)
This one below is I like to look at as it brings back lots of memories of fun time spent with friends the night we all made these.
Below are my largest and smallest pincushions - co-incidently both made by Leeanne!
The small one is made from a drink bottle lid and is a perfect size for inside my needleturn applique tin, along with the red bird pin cushion made by another friend.
Here we have more pincushions, mostly decorative, made for me by other special people. Lovely to look at and smile :-)
This pincushion below was made by Sharon.... this one sits by my evening stitching chair and usually looks a lot more full and messy than this photo shows! It was the first time I'd come across crushed walnut shells as a filling - and I love the weight and feel they give. And it's handy to place on my lightbox to keep papers or fabric from moving!
And my daytime sewing pincushions are these two. Yes, a magnetic pincushion is not very glamourous but I love being able to throw the pins at it as I speed along on the machine. And the one with the scrap bag is very handy and well used too.
I hope you've enjoyed this little looksie at some of my pincushions...naturally there are more but I won't go on too long today!
To see more and maybe even join in yourself visit mysismademe do it.
Have a good day everyone,
