Pincushion


May Britt posted a tutorial for her pincushion which sparked some interest amongst my friends.
I can't seem to link to the exact post but if you go here and scroll down you can find it in case you don't already know about it. The pincushion at the front here is mine and the yellow topped one is my friend Dianne's. There may be more yet... I think they may have a habit of multiplying. This is the first time I have actually done piecing with papers and I did enjoy it so maybe I will have to think about what other projects I can do.
Just one thing I wonder - why is it that when I need to find my buttons I can't. I have a whole tin ....somewhere.... but when I was finishing this pincusion I could only find three. Luckily one of those was a cute pink flower one which goes very well with the project.

How pretty!! Have you seen Angela's pin cushion swap over at Country Cellars? It's a natural. Those are so neat.

Love your pincushion. It reminds me of those paper things we used to fold as kids that you put your fingers into and ... well it isn't easy to explain. Do you know what I mean?

I love these 'lotus'? pincushions--so pretty. I just made a pear pincushion sans Heather Bailey but must obtain green wool felt to do the leaves before I can declare them finished!
