There is a fun little blog parade being hosted over at Laugh Love Quilt. Like all the participants I have more than a handful of pincushions that I use regularly.
This Hat Pincushion holds various needles for hand work.
These little China men hold my large quilt pins and a few tiny applique pins.
Here's the main work horse. I picked this pincushion up at my favorite quilt shop in Hawaii on the island of Kauai, Kapaia Stitchery.
These are my little Eskimo ladies...I had to have an Alaskan pincushion.
This one is strictly for my machine needles. I used this mainly when working with clothing...mostly mending...so the needles are only used for a few minutes and ready for the next job.
Another work horse...the pincushion and thread catcher combo. Love this! A gift from my mother-in-law.
My most recent acquisition...one that I made to match my lime green scissors.
The idea came from a book by Nancy Halvorsen. I'd love to have all of these...just never get around to making them!
There are so many cute pincushions in this book that I want to make that apparently I bought the book twice. I think that's the only time I have done that with books. Sew very fun. Hope you enjoyed this part of the parade.
