    I have 7 going at all times. I use two at the cutting table and two at my sewing machine and two at the ironing board. Then I have one in my tote that goes to classes with me. Three of them are on threadcatchers and stay put. The others travel around a few feet or so.

    This way, I always have room for unpinning and I always have a full pin cushion for pinning.

    I don't use any, though I do have some. The thought of my cats playing with a loaded pin cushion freaks me out! For pins, I use two small vintage 1950's Corningware ramekins (love 50's Corningware!)...one on the cutting table for when I pin things together and one next to the sewing machine for when I pull them out.

    I thought I only had 1 which is an magnet. But, tonight I found 2 more. You know the kind, they look like tomatoes.
    One is pink, the other red.

    Not sure if you were asking about the pin cushion I posted or not. My grandmother taught herself. She made all kind of baskets. I have several I still use. I've said that I wanted to learn but never take the time.

    I just started a sign up for a pincushion swap if any one is interested. I am looking forward to doing it and seeing all the neat pincushions that will come out of it. Signup closes Aug. 2nd and mailing deadline is Sept. 15th.

    That sounds like me with one additional: the arm of the chair I sit in. Luckily it is stuffed! :)
