Finally...a Pincushion

There is finally a home for my pins. I've been sewing for years and you may recall my earlier post about not owning a pincushion. That's ridiculous. So, I shopped for a long time for a pincushion to meet my needs and expectations. I must be quirky, because it's just a stuffed pillow for your pins, right? It doesn't really have to be anything fancy, right?


I shopped and looked for a large pincushion with pizazz. I just wanted something as bright and unique as the fabrics I love. There are lots of little ones out there, but I wanted a honker. So, I broke down and made one today while T was napping. I used pieced 3" strips of Anna Maria Horner Good Folks, cut into two 8" circles. It's certainly full of pizazz...and it's a biggin'...I don't know if it's the loveliest cushion of all time, but I'm happy my pins finally have a home.
