    Those are really cute--do you crush the walnuts yourself? Your color choices are great--thanks for sharing. Donna

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    Very nice. I like the simplicity of your pincushions!

    Thank you! I buy my crushed walnut shells at a pet store(they are sold for reptiles : ) It is a 10 quart bag, but as many pincushions as I plan to make, it is cheaper than buying at a LQS.

    I hand stitch them(the appliqué was the kind where you use interfacing and turn), the embroidery thread is single ply.
    I find hand stitching relaxing : )
