Plenty of pins

Thoughts about things: Over the memorial weekend I did a little antique shopping. I found this old roll of pins and was intriqued by them. For just 5.oo I brought them home. I can always use more pins. Then again, I probably will not use them, just keep them as they are.

Making a new pin cushion was the next order of business. I saw this pattern on another blog. As usual, I can't remember which blog it was, but I will search inside this forgetful mind and try to find it if anyone is interested.

I just used scraps that I had. Red wool on the bottom

Topped it with this little wood figurine. Kinda quirky!

Fun and easy to make. Great little gift to have on hand when you need a little something special for someone.


  1. Too cute! I too make pincushions, and have quite a collection of them. However, the only one that I actually USE is my magnetic one! LOL

  2. Gayle makes the cutest things, you should see her craft room. It's over a 2 car garage! Your pincushion turned out so cute. I do love pincushions. Mimi
