Pin cushion collection


As promised, here is a post of other pin cushions I own. I know we all have a nice collection going as they are so much fun to collect, but here are a few special ones. The blue wooden one was made by my dad and is great for holding a spool of thread and even has a place for putting small scissors or a thimble. The little mouse I made thinking I would make them for all my friends - forget that, once was enough. The oriental looking one belonged to my mother-in-law. The cute chair was a gift fromDarlene and the chicken a gift from an internet friend for doing a block swap with her. I guess one of my all time favorites is the porceline cat and dog which my mom gave me a long time ago, and in the front, another very special one in silver with its own thimble and scissors, a gift from Linda.
I hope you all have a relaxing peaceful Sunday. I hope to get some quilting done on my CB. Have to unpack from quilt club meeting yesterday and maybe I can post a pic of the quilt tops my daughter and I made at the meeting. She is such a smarty pants and got the borders sewn on hers - I still have the borders to do.

Great collection! I think these young ones are a little speedier than us seasoned quilters. We like to take the time and enjoy the process!
