The Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade
I am linking up with Ida at My Sister Made Me do it for her second Parade of Pincushions and I have already seen some real beauties around blogland. Do pop over to her blog to see some gorgeous pincushions.
I am starting off with this one which lives near my sewing machine and which sits quite handily by it while I am machining.
When not in use it sits in this little matching basket which was a Jenny of Elefantz design and holds a few other tools and essentials!.
This florentine/bargello pincushion is not in use but sits on my shelf of needlework tools. I made it as part of my C&G course back in the 80's.
The box was intended to hold a thimble and now holds a few from my collection.
Finally my newest pincushion - I love that Tilda fabric and the little glass dish cost just 50pence from a charity shop. I stuffed it with walnut shells so it is nice and heavy.
Many thanks to Ida for organising this link up.
