Pin it blog hop

I'm so happy to have the opportunity to start this blog hop. This is the first day, and it is my day. Thanks to Madame Samm at Sew we quilt and Kristen King at Meadowbrook for bringing such fun to us all.

I really love pincushions, and have a collection of different sized and shaped ones from quilting friends all over the world. I think some of you will find a pincushion you've made on the last picture in this blog post.

If I don't know what to sew, I always make a pincushion. A possibility to use all my tiniest scraps, and I love it.







































I have many old jars like this, and had to make a pincushion on top of the one I use for my spools. And as I love hexies too, I had to include a blue flower in this one.






































Many of my pincushions are made with selvages, and I've made some of them for this blog hop too.







































My old doll with all the new pincushions.
































Bare Essentials.
This one goes to one of you if you like it. Just tell me in a comment that you wish to be in a draw for it. I'll draw a winner September 18th.

Won by Shelia.

















These are some of my own pincushions given to me by nice folks around the world. I have as least one in every room in my house. Enjoy!

























Hope you had a good time here on my blog. And there are even more to enjoy. All these people are going to show us fantastic pincushion for at least a week from now.  So let yourself be inspired!

  66. I like that you have pin cushions in every room of your house. I can see why when I see the amazing pin cushions that you have. They are beautiful and adorable. I have some selvedges that I won in a drawing when we had a charm exchange at our guild. We had to turn in our selvedges to show that we were exchanging quilt quality fabric. I've been wanting to make pin cushions and after seeing yours - I know I do. Thanks for participating and being a great inspiration. I just had to look at some of your other posts and they are amazing, too!
