    They are both adorable, but I think I'm partial to the manniquin pincushion. Love all the details you included!

    Say, what did you use for the base on that pin cushion manniquin? I have that pattern, cut up a bunch, stuffed them but no base to put them on.

    QM-- candle sticks work great too! Thrift shops or Walmart are good places to find them.

    I have used votive candle holders and anything that has a little wide base to it.I sold 12 to my quilting buddies.The feathers you see on are real turkey fluff my hubby found in the woods.

    Cool, I have those and can find them easily. I will shop the thrift shops to get the other as well, if there are any. This way can be ready with them for the craft show in November. Thanks mary

    More Jar Pin Cushions

    Here are a couple of more Jar pin cushions I just finished. One is themed for Mardi Gras since I live in Louisiana, the other I made for a friend. Hope you like them. I have one more jar just don't know..have some beautiful rose fabric might do one using a cluster as the center.

    Hugs,
    Cajun

    I have my two ready to go... you can't see them or it wouldn't be any fun. I love the ones you have all created. The heart what cute work. I love stuff like that! I can't wait to see what everyone receives come swap time. Maybe I should make more just in case..heck you are all so creative I have to think.. how to push it even farther. These swaps are sure fun. Everyone starts with the same challenge and there are so many different end projects that you can not help but want to do MORE AND MORE (maybe that is the idea?)..

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    The postage thing might be more of a shape and size thing than weight.

    For a bit of weight, you can use rice, or lentils, etc. Have also known of folks using washers and such!

    Wow, in all my pressure of life because I love to be busy, I know crazy am I, I finished stitching out two pincushions this am. Now to go dig out the stuffing and sew the opening closed. I will post photos when the are done. Love the embroidery machine. I am going to fill one with walnut shells and the other with fiberfil so I am covered both ways. Now onto finishing up those chicken blocks and getting show quilts done. Whew.
