I've Been Busy~Pin Cushions! Oh! Pin Cushions!

Hope Everyone had a lovely weekend. We have been fighting of a some kinda sick bug, but we are all feeling good!! I have been busy making pin cushions for the Holiday Season. Here are three that I finished. I have many many more in stages of completion.
I used a vintage Avon thimble. These really look so much better in person. It is like these thimbles were ment to be placed on a pin cushion!

handmade Little Bird Pin Cushion~SOLD
I used a christmas ornament. I saw it and thought it was so darn cute! I added a heart lock charm. It also has vintage mother of pearls sewn in each of the six sections.

handmade Mrs. Eleanor Kitty Cat Pin Cushion...but her friends call her Mrs. Ellie. She is from a new kitty cat pattern I created. ~SOLD

I hope you enjoyed! Keep checking back because I am making more. I have my pin cushions up for sale in my etsy shoppe. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17462844
hugs, Ellen

Ellen,

I am the luckiest girl in the world. I received my Cake pincushion yesterday. Wow, that was very fast.

I adore it!!!!! The beautiful pins that came with it are 2DIE4. I am using it already. I had a small sewing project last night and it was right next to me on the living room table.

Thank you so much for the love and attention to detail and speedy delivery. It is stunning!

xo Cathy
