    Those are really cute--do you crush the walnuts yourself? Your color choices are great--thanks for sharing. Donna

    Thank you! I buy my crushed walnut shells at a pet store(they are sold for reptiles : ) It is a 10 quart bag, but as many pincushions as I plan to make, it is cheaper than buying at a LQS.

    I hand stitch them(the appliqué was the kind where you use interfacing and turn), the embroidery thread is single ply.
    I find hand stitching relaxing : )

    These are gorgeous! I may have to break down and buy a bag of crushed walnut shells after all. I hesitated wondering what I'd do with 10 lbs.

    Beautiful pincushions. I will have to remember that about the shells.

    I see I am not the only one who finds hand stitching relaxing. I after I machine sew the bindings on the back I finish them off by handsewing the front. I hem most of the clothes I make by hand.
