My Pincushion


My Place and Yours this week is 'My Pincushion". I made this one years ago just to have a go at 'Cathedral Window' and used it ever since. I have NEVER done any more Cathedral Window though as it was far too fiddly and time consuming!  Recently it has been put into retirement and I just use a small plastic container for my pins.

This is one of a pair I made for my Website and decided I liked it enough to keep it.


And this one is purely decorative, given to me by a very dear friend a few years ago.

Oh I love the birdie one! I have a couple of purely decorative pincushions too, I'll have to include them in my post.

I would be no good just keeping my pins in a container; I would spill them everywhere, all the time, I just know it!

Thanks for joining in Jackie, is it rainy today where you are too? It's positively dreary here!

Oooo they're gorgeous Jackei, love the boot most. I'd need a magnetic tin, I'm way too clumsy. Love your post :)

Love that birdie one... I made the same one for a friend a year ago and it was very difficult to part with. Love your cathedral window pincushion too.. I did a class to make a small quilt in cathedral windows... and ended up making a bag.. he he... yes much too time consuming!!!

You got farther than I did making a Cathedral windows. I never thought about turning my square into something useful though. I may have to think about it.
