A Plethora of Pin Cushions

Here's the collection of recently-swapped pin cushions in Art4Mail. The big square is from Vic; the hen is Lisa's, Ildika made a most unusual one using an old silver serving spoon and Ani made a wonderful bugga-bugga. My offering is a little purse, because as Janis H. says, "a girl cannot have too many purses!" I totally agree.









Here's another version in pink. In fact, it was the first one of these I'd made from this little pin cushion pattern, and I made it for our 2nd Annual WayMooreFunQuilt Retreat back in 2005. The girls loved it and it was a big hit with them.
