The Blueberry Lane blog is having a giveaway: Post a picture of your favorite pincushion and let them know to be entered for a pincushion pattern book. The LAST thing I need is another unused pattern book, but here are my pincushions:
One is not actually a standalone pincushion, but I use the puffy "stick pins in me" part of my little circa-1973 sewing box the most. My favorite, that I use VERY carefully because it is falling apart, is sitting on the edge of the pincushion. I made it together with my Grandma Dunaway when I was VERY small (as in about age 5 or 6 small) and I've used it ever since. Avocado green velvet, oooh. The canning rings were put together with masking tape, which finally gave out, so I need to figure out a way to put it back together.
