    Recently, two of the guilds I attend had pincushion exchanges. I think everyone should have a basketful of pincushions in their sewing room. Man, there are some adorable pincushions out there! And now my personal stash of pincushions has grown since I took the photo...they keep multiplying...

    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

    I have too many to keep out anymore. I think I'll find a basket to keep them all in!

    One is too many for me I'm afraid. :( My cats think pincushions are cat toys and that makes them just too dangerous for me to risk using. I have a couple, but can't keep pins in them at all.

    I have no pincushions - I use a magentic thingy which lets me pick up pins fast from table or floor.

    Plus, I agree - it would just become a cat toy.

    Although hmm those sure are cute.

    I'm with you. I don't think you can have too many pincushions. What a great collection you have. :)

    ( Although I have to admit to keeping them away from the dog. He would love to get his choppers on one of the felted wool kind.)

    Your collection is wonderful. I really like the little owl. I do not have a pin cushion to my name. Poor me. I'm afraid the cat would think it's a toy.

    I made this from the cap of a 2-liter bottle. If I use elastic it can be worn as a ring. This one has string and is tied to the handle of a small basket I carry with me.

    I love that owl. Thanks for the link. Since many have said that their cat would think it was a toy, I am going to make one and stuff it with catnip for her. I use the magnetic cup myself.

    Is that an elephant in the first picture, did you make it. Do you remember where you found the directions? My hubby loves elephants.

    I have several of those also. I use all mine. One is knitted that I've had for 40 years.
