    Mary Quilting posted pictures of a sunny side up egg, chicken, and
    peacock pincushion.

    That's right friends it was ME who got them!!!!

    Just got home from running a few errands and I saw there was a
    "parcel" box key in my mail box the key is for larger lockers when
    the package won't fit in the mail box.

    Mary sent me such a WONDERFUL little note in which she tells me
    that she loved the story that I told of how I felt mom was probably
    making my grandpa some of her fried chicken.

    She proceeded to tell me of a story of her mom as a child that was
    about a chicken also.

    So she made us BOTH a chicken pincushion to remember our moms
    when we look at them.

    The sunny side up egg is just so adorable also.

    Lets not forget about the peacock pincushion where under the top layer
    of "tail feathers" is felt for a needle case. Just too darn cute and awesome!!!


    THANK YOU Mary so much for all 3 pincushions and most of all for sharing the
    story of your mom with me.

    Please don't forget to PM me when you mail and when you receive.

    Also, when you mail to your partner, make sure that you put the swap month on your envelope or your card. This is so that we can post to the right thread. We have had several posts that were posted to the wrong thread.

    Pincushion collection

    I have made a mention before about my collection of pincushions.

    So I have been trying to think of how I wanted to display them all
    in a way that my fur kids can't get to them (they love to play with
    all of them). Then I decided I would get a long cafe style curtain rod
    and the ring clips.

    With my husbands help (he mounted the rod where I wanted because
    I am to short to reach), I had decided that I was going to put them on
    the edge of the ceiling where my living room wall vaults (hard for me to
    describe any better).

    Here are some pictures of my collection. I think I have more buried in
    my fabric room some where, but until I can finish getting it cleaned up
    I have no clue where to start looking. So far though I have hung 22 up
    on my rod.



    This is the full collection I have hanging.

    And before anyone should ask (if it has crossed their minds) the answer is NO
    I don't have any favorites I love them all.
