    Love your collection of pincushions. I have another site for you for a Hexi- caddy pincushion. http://pennyshands.blogspot.com/2010...-tutorial.html

    Your collection is stunning!! Thanks for the link to the owl cushion. My BFF birthday is coming up and I think this will make a great little "giftie" (we always call it that)

    Made me think.... I don't own a pincushion. Maybe I need one. I just piece and don't use pins but my goal for the summer is to become proficient in needle turn applique and I want to get pins for applique. I like the piece of cake ones. they are really cute.

    I collect china pincushions and have stayed away from most of the cloth ones except the satin with the little people around them. I always thought they were cute but didn't have any place to put them. When you said a 'basketful of pincushions" I thought what a great idea.:-)

    I use the magnetic one as well and I love it. I have a few other pincushions but use the magnetic one 99% of the time.

    Wow - you have quite a wonderful collection. How long have you been collecting? I love the little owl and the teapot amazes me. Gotta try that one! My SIL collects them too. She is a retired Home Economics teacher and she also bakes fancy cakes, so for her BD I made her a little cake on a pedestal pincushion that she loves. My DH and i found the glass pedestal at an antique barn. I sewed a cylinder in white satin, filled it with saw dust, and embellished it with ribbonwork, then attached it to the pedestal. A fun project!

    I tend to like pin cushions myself. One of my favorite cushions that I gave my girlfriend recently because she had no sewing supplies and was starting to sew again, was a china cup made into a pin cushion. I just loved it and handed it to her full of pins. Another old pin cusher I have is a turtle made out of different colors of gingham and prairie points around the bottom that I made some 30+ years ago and didn't really appreciate it until about 10-15 years ago. The cushion I use the most is a stuffed rainbow that my son won(?) out of one of these "grab-it" things in grocery stores that are filled with stuffed animals & toys. I think he was 16 at the time. That has been my favorite pin cushion for 25 years.

    Pincushions are cute, but for me
    they get in my way.
    I use my magnetic bowls all the time.
