    I love pin cushions, but not to use as pin cushions. I just like to make them and sit them around to bring a smile when I'm feeling down.

    Show me your pincushions! What's your favorite?

    Love the little Owl I made yesterday from a pattern HERE: http://moonstitches.typepad.com/phot...ial/index.html
    So great! As much as I need a pincushion, I am really lame in making one. I can see how easy it is and soon must make a new one for myself. I am still using the red tomato pincushion I got from junior high some 50 years ago....it has sawdust inside and starting to fall apart. Gotta get my rear in gear and make a new one....or two.

    Too cute! Love them but haven't made any. Did make the chicken doorstop, but nothing smaller.

    I love pincushions too and started making and collecting them severalyears ago. I keep them on shelves above my sewing machine and other places in the sewing room. You have a great collection. I tried to add a picture of mine but don't know how!

    Are there directions for the owl or just the template?

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!
    Oh, Buzzin' Bumble, your fancy cake pincushion is delicious enough to take a bite! So clever!

    I am glad to know that there are others who do not know how to post a reply and a photo. Is there someone out there who can tell us how to do it in a "simple to understand" way?? This may be asking too much to do here but I will try. Thanks

    My pins think they live on the table, on the floor, on the arm of my chair... I use the magnetic ones, or at least I try to! I do love your pin cushions though, they would make great gifts!

    My problem was that the Browse button wasn't there for me to put the pic in. Go to the group info and it will tell you how to post a picture.

    i have one. that darn tomato. I love birds so I may have to make a few owls. I don't have a sewing room so a basket of pincushions would just be clutter unfortunatly

    Using the Quick Reply at the bottom of the page doesn't allow you to post pictures, unless you go back to your post and edit -- adding attachments.

    Most cameras will give you a picture that is HUGE, so you need to learn how to cut the pic down with an editing software such as Photoshop or you can use Windows' cheapie and save it as a JPEG extension, so it doesn't take up so much room.

    You need to hit REPLY on someone elses post and then the box will come up so you can BROWSE and then ADD the file attachment. You can add your own words in the first box.

    Don't use PREVIEW, it won't work for the pics. Just ADD the FILE and hit the SEND button.

    I have two, one is a chicken my mother-in-law gave me many years ago and the other is the one that's round and has thread around the edges that my mother made, also many years ago. Both very cherished.

    After you enter the gallery and see the template, look in the upper left corner, it has "next" keep clicking there to see the next step on how to assemble the owl.

    Holy moly, that's a lot of pincushions! Makes my single little pincushion look a little sad :)
