Pins & needles

There are a lot of pincushions being revealed all over the world in response to Blueberry Lane's pincushion giveaway. Some of them are just too sweet to ever consider sticking pins into. This is my everyday pincushion on the left & my well used needle book on the right. These were an experiment in foundation piecing & were made years ago. They are looking a bit dated, really should make some new ones!My absolute favourite pincushion though is this one, made for me by my precious boy when he was in kindergarten. He was so excited to give me this, because "I know you'll just love it Mum"! And I did. He even insisted that I take it to my quilting group & show all my friends, he was so proud of it. And I did! It's wonky stitching & googly eyes will be treasured forever. I have lots of pincushions on my 'to do' list, but I particularly love this one (nice & quick), and also this especially gorgeous one (not so quick, but surely an heirloom in the making). I have just discovered two Aussie girls new to blogland tonight so please be sure to visit & say a big 'gidday' to Vintage Lane Stitches and Ohsewbusy.
