Pincushion Fever

In addition to the pincushion swap hosted by Linda at All Stitched Up, I joined a yahoo group, Crazy about pincushions and particiapated in a swap on that group. I mailed my pincushion for that swap, themed Victorian pincushions, yesterday. I forgot to take a picture of it in my hurry to mail it out - darnit! But here is a picture of a pincushion I made a week or two ago. I'm not crazy about the ribbon or the fabric but otherwise I was happy with how it came out so I may have to make another one soon!

I admit I've gotten a little obsessed with pincushions now and have collected quite the number of free patterns from the web as well as ordering a few patterns. I've also been keeping an eye out for containers that would make good "holders" for pincushions - I found two great ones at a garage sale and it is one of those I used for the Victorian Swap. Once it is received maybe the recipient will send me a pic so I can post it.

Have a pieceful day!

I actually love that pin cushion! I joined the Crazy About Pincushions group as well -- but haven't participated in a swap yet.
What do you use to stuff your pin cushions?

Linda said...

Oh I think it's adorable.

I like the fabric AND the ribbon! It's very cute!!!

I like pincushions, too. I have not been in any swaps but wish I had known about Linda's before it closed. I had friends over last Saturday. I had wool pin cushion kits made up ready for them to work on. They all really enjoyed the project.

Oh, I think your pincushion is darling--fabric, ribbon and all! I DO hope your swap partner gets a photo of the other one so you can share it with us.
