Pincushions

Who doesn't love pincushions?? I didn't start out to, but for some reason I seem to be getting a pincushion collection. And I hope to get more!

I won a give-a-way from Rana's and received a pattern for her Heirloom Tomatoes Pincushion pattern. Go visit her site!! I hope to get to it soon, but that got me to looking at all of the ones I already have.

Then, while reading one of my favorite blogs, Love Laugh Quilt, I saw that she is showcasing pin cushions, so thought I would post pictures of mine. So here goes:







I have received most of these as gifts, except the giant one which I made during a sew-a-long. You can see that the one I use most is the one with the thread catcher. It is by my seat where I watch TV. Must. keep. hands. busy....LOL.

Go check out all of the rest of the pin cushion links at Love Laugh Quilt.

A really sweet collection. I love to look at them, but use a magnet to hold mine. Not as pretty, but very handy!

I just joined the parade too - what fun! The timing of the parade seems perfectly timed for your winnings! I like the fabric choice of chocolate chips and sprinkles on top! Thanks for sharing.

I am excited to do Rana's cushions each month. I don't have a collection..well except for my heirloom tomato from this month.

Yours is a great collection!

Thank you for sharing your sweet pincushion collection. I sure could use one with a thread catcher, but I want to make the pear; it's so cute!
