pincushion parade

There is a pincushion link up party over here this week.  I thought it would be fun to join the parade, so here are a few of my pincushions!

 I made these and had fun with the stitching and beads.



 I bought this one....I liked the piece/peace sign.


 I cross-stitched these.


I made this fun one.

 I bought both of these... the strawberry sharpens the pins and the heart can be used on my wrist.

This is one I have used since I was a little girl. It is velvet and was in my mother's sewing box : )

I hope you enjoyed the pincushion parade.   You will want to visit other blogs here for more pincushion inspiration.

piece,
elizabeth
