Pin Cushions

Our local quilt group had a pin cushion day. So I made a couple to take along. You might recognise one of them. Yes , I actually made another paper pieced pin cushion. Much easier the second time around. 

We had a fun day, everyone bought along their pincushions to display. We had some interesting ones from the very first one a lady made at school - the old pressure pack lid and fabric . To a beautiful old crochet one that belonged to one lady's husband's grandmother. 
  We also have a project where we have been given 12  embroideries to make something with wether we use all or them or one of them. I used one of them to make a pin cushion.
