There's a giveaway at Blueberry Lane Designs...she's giving away an out-of-print pincushion book. The challenge is to post a picture of your pincushion(s). You can see in the picture, the red one on the left is the one I'm currently using. It was made from a pattern found here. I love it because it's nice and heavy and doesn't scoot around when I stick the pins in.
I have a nice little collection of pincushions, most of which were aquired over just the last couple of years. A couple of online friends, Peggy and Robin, conspired...err, ahem, introduced me to the joys of making and collecting them. They have contributed frequently to my little habit and I love them all. I've been on the hunt lately, trying to find fun, new ideas for making them (especially with woolfelt). I recently sent in a set of pincushions for a swap Robin is hosting...and looking forward to seeing what I'll receive in return!
