I rec'd my whimsically wonderful pincushion from mink_bikini today and I love it!  She has pics on her blog that she has offered to post for me and since my photog skills are not great I've taken her up on that offer.  Just wait til you see it, you'll all want one just like it!

Thank you Gamemom, here we go some of the pics. It was hard to get all the detail in, I have more on my blog if anyone is so inclined to check them out. The pincushion was made around an old sauce bottle lid so it's recycled too (my fave type of crafts  Grin) Gamemom likes Paisley hence the swirly details.

Love the sugar skull pincushion! Did you have to do a lot of planning with your embroidery machine?  I would love to try such a whimsical free form pattern like yours...it is beautiful...and the pins are extra special!

Also love the paisley pincushion...the ric rac is a nice addition...I need to go see more pics..the colors are fabulous!

The paisley pincushion reminds me of a hot-air balloon for some reason....   Smiley

I didn't have to do much for the pincushion.

I feel like I cheated, but it's so cute and I knew it would suit my partner perfectly.
I was also motivated to go fast by the slow shipping time. It took about a month to get there.

Thanks for the link!  I think it is just so cute and well made...I have been following your machine embroidery (love ) and really want to use mine a lot more...I haven't quite figured out how to download patterns yet, but this pincushion is a perfect example of function and design, which I love!! ha--I think it takes a lot more work to set up the machine than to do it by hand, so don't sell yourself short!

That sugar skull is bright and cheerful as far as a skull can be cheery, hahaha! Looks great! The pins are the best addition!

And I already checked out your blog Mink to see pics and it so pretty! I love paisleys too, so it would fit me too  Cheesy  Beautiful work!


I have no idea why the pincushion for Scrapkatt is taking so long to reach her!!  Huh and  Angry !!
