I received my pin cushions from Nannetta today!! 



She handcrafted two wearable pin cushions for me - and may save me from a trip to hospital with a needle in my boob.  I'm bad about parking my embroidery needle in my clothes (don't do this!!) and having a pin cushion on my shirt will help me break this bad habit. The colors of the cushions are perfect and I adore both of them.

She also sent me a lovely assortment of picture postcards from her home and also the flosses she used to embroider my sweet birdie pin cushion.  Grin

Thank you, Nan!  You're an awesome partner!

Edited to add, close up of birdie per MamaRose's request.  One should always respect Mama!

(Don't you love how the chain stitches are so beautifully uniform?)

and a picture of the back of the birdie with the unique bobby pin clasp.  I will clip it to my clothing because wearing it in my hair is asking for trouble.


The clasp on the back of the ribbon pin cushion is a brooch pin.

I love all of the pincushions that have been posted, esp. the purple birdie and the dress form!


I'm bad about parking my embroidery needle in my clothes


Yeah, I do that too lol
And my family always yells at me because I usually do my needle crafts on the couch in the living room, and I end up sticking my pins in it... It is like a giant pincushion! Until I realize that my needle is missing...

He he, yes the couch is one big pin cushion! I'm bad about doing that or pushing one through the tough part of the seam of my jeans near my knee as I craft in my lap while watching tv often.

Lovin the pin cushions!

A wearable pincushion is a great idea! I too, tend to put my pins and needles in my clothes. How do they fix themselves to you? Is there just a pin backing on it?

I also have the bad habit of putting pins and needles in my clothing, then later wonder what the heck is sticking me.  Do you have a better picture of that purple birdie Fidget?  It's hard to really make it out on that dark background.

My turn for pictures!  Check out the cutie that I received from E.D. Cheesy  The pincushion is the perfect size, and it was contained in a cute little pouch!  E.D.'s great at stalking.  She knows that I am a budding knitter and hooker, so she incorporated that into her pincushion design Smiley  I loooove my new pincushion Cheesy

E.D., thanks for being such a wonderful swap partner...and barbolot, thanks for organizing this swap! Cheesy
