    Here's some of mine that I made with Dotty in NYC's expert advise and help. The cupcake ones are in Wilton's silicone cupcake cups, the sunflower and square ones are Partylite tea candle holders, the small rounds are glass tea light holders from Dollar Tree. I search garage sales and thrift stores for tea light holders to use in pincushions. I just got some Southwest turtles, one metal one, two terra cotta ones but I don't have them done yet. I gave mine away at a recent quilt retreat. Each lady in our retreat group and the two other retreat groups that were there got to pick one. It was my "Hi, glad you're here" gift.

    I think I'm like Dotty, I've gotten a little addicted to making them. They're so much fun.
