Pin Cushion Collection

Above are ones from a swap in Art4Mail using soda bottle lids and a lot of beautiful embroidery. These are from Sue and Lisa. The wooden heart was made by dear Jim B. who patiently routed, sawed, sanded, glued and varnished several dozen of these for retreat gifts. Thank you once again, you dear man!

Two chicks showed up at a WayMoore
Fun retreat
class a couple of times.

This flannel 4-patch was a table gift for each member of OPQ at our 2nd annual summer day workshop. They were cut from manufacturer's samples and I used the raggedy edge finish technique.

They were reversible, too!
