Pin It


                                                       


It has been a while since I have taken part in a blog hop but when I seen Madame Samm announce the Pin It hop I could no longer resist the temptation ,I love pincushions  . I want to thank our wonderful hostess Madame Samm as well as our very organized cheerleader  Kristen , I  appreciate the work you do behind the scenes to make this happen .
Who doesn't love pincushions and as a quilter they are not only pretty but useful and so I had lots of fun making a few pincushions for this hop ,so pull up a chair and grab your favorite drink and hopefully enjoy my little display .
I started off with this cute little wool hat with a wool flower and some beads for decorations. I made this pattern years ago and the pattern came from an American Patchwork and Quilting publication from June 2005 . Since I love working with wool I continued on that path for my next pincushion .
This large fun pincushion was designed by Lynne of Kansas Trouble Quilters and is from the book Seeds of Time - a quilters journal #5 .
I was still having fun with the wool and remembered I had started this crazy patch pincushion while doing a RR pincushion swap which was hosted by Fiona of Bubzrugz , this swap was designed around a great pincushion that Kaaren shared on her blog and with her permission Fiona organized the swap , now for my pincushion .
They are such fun to make and you can add whatever takes your fancy in each little section of your crazy patch . I must share the pincushion that I received from the swap as well, it traveled the globe and back to me and is a treasure in my sewing space. It is on the right and you can also see the hat pincushion I made many years ago along with these stacking flower pincushions .

This next little project just caught my eye on pinterest and I had to try it , there were no directions just the template but I figured it out without much trouble but it sure is tiny . Owls are all the rage right now so I just had to have one ;-) You can find the template here . I didn't have the heart to poke it with a pin though ;-)

This little pincushion started out life as a sugar bowl a beautiful piece of china by Paragon and since I love pretty china as well as pincushions I wanted to add it to my collection .
I have to apologize for the lighting , it is dark and dreary here today and I did my best to get this to show up.
Back to the wool and another pinterest idea , no pattern just a photo and some guessing and away I went.
The best part about working with this type of project it is mostly done by hand , infact this entire pincushion was done by hand .
 I used some wool again and drew out the letters free hand , and added the measuring tape to the side . I love most things vintage and this last pincushion came about when I purchased a few crocheted bits at a church yard sale recently , I thought this one looked so cute on some plain fabric , elegant with a few beads here and there , simple but cute.

 I hope you enjoyed my little pincushion display and be sure to visit each of todays participants in this fun hop. Thanks so much for stopping by  and don't forget to leave a comment , we all love to hear what you think .
 Hugs Sheila

  30. I just noticed the hand-cranked machine. Have you seen the video of the lady who's sewing IN HER TRACTOR CAB WHILE IT'S WORKING? It's a hand-cranked too so she doesn't need power while she's sewing inside the GPS-run tractor. Visit my FB page to see the link.

  66. What can I say? So many wonderful pincushions. I love the crazy quilting ones and the owl and the hat and the sunflower...you get the drift!!! Your antique sewing kit caught my eye. It reminds me of one I inherited from my aunt. Mine has about that same colored fabric inside. The outside of it is something like red raffia woven together.
