Extra-ordinary Pincushions

Pincushions! I have never met a pincushion I did not long to pick up and examine and think about purchasing. The more unique the cushion, the more attracted I am. I have several books about them on the bookshelf too. Recently I went through a bag of orphaned china pieces thinking I would create something really cool. So there I am staring into the bag, and my brain is perking, the smell of coffee is in the air, and eureka! Those poor orphaned teacups, creamers, sugar bowls, and planters have found new service as Pincushions. Each one is unique. All are decorated with handmade ribbon flowers, trimmed with vintage beads or charms and individually decorated. Wow, don’t you just love them? Please let me know what you think!
