My Pincushion.
A number of people have mentioned their pincushions so I thought I would add a photograph of mine (the one I use anyway). It is made from two small log cabin blocks which were left overs from a small quilt I made about 12 years ago. You can see the quilt in the background - it has faded a bit but it has been used around the house as a table centre, a doll's quilt and all sorts of strange things that children adapt for their games. The quilt came from a Little Quilts Book and I think I also made about three Little Pillows - this one became a pincusion. I like to have a pincushion beside my sewing machine to put pins in as I sew. I sew on the dining room table at the moment so I need to make sure that everything can quickly be picked up and put away. One day I will have my own little corner ......

Oh gosh - I have some of the blue ditsy fabric that is in your pin cushion. Being a log cabin lover (who isn't), your charming little quilt and the pin cushion caught my eye. Great use of extra blocks.
