PPPP


I have joined "The Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade" for the first time.....
Thanks to  Ida and Sis for this fun Parade.....

This pincushion was a kit that I had put off making for a longggg time, I'm so pleased with it and can't really understand why I didn't make it earlier....

It was a fiddly little devil..... lol


I do love this cute little pincushion..... 
bought this one from a craft shop, just couldn't leave without it.....


These are among my favourites.....
what did I just say ?????
they are all my favourites......lol.....


From the tiny cup and saucer pin cushion to this one.....

it is very big ... 
what is a pin cushion without the metal stand......



I do love working with wool so this one was fun to make.....
I bought the kit at The Home Patch shop in Bathurst on a recent trip there....


Big ones......


smaller ones.....


Old Worlde' ones.....


Gifts, swaps, gifts from me to me and bought ones.....
and more on my "to do list".....
Oh dear .... I do think I have a problem.....
There is nothing more tempting than a pretty pincushion.....

if you would like to join in or just check out all the beautiful pincushions then go here.......

I did try to find an ugly pincushion but alas I couldn't see one anywhere in my collection.....
This has been such fun.....

Toodles.....

You have some beautiful pincushions ..... I see a turtle that I've seen on a couple of others which I would love to find a pattern for ......and of course the one on the stand that makes such a dramatic statement!

What a gorgeous parade of pincushions Helen. They are all so lovely. It is so easy to fall for a pretty pincushion isn't it?

Hi Helen. You have a beautiful collection of pin cushions. I can't choose a favourite one.

Janet said...

I love that you don't think any of your pincushions are ugly! Because they are all little works of art in their own way. But that first one! Oh my, that is a real work of art. It looks like a cake. So pretty.
