Pincushions--Finis

I know that I have bellyached long and hard about my lack of motivation when it came to working on the tufted pincushions.

Maestro, may I have a drumroll please...



They do look lovely sitting side by side, in all their flowery splendor. Like little cactus flowers blooming in the desert sun. Hee hee...humor me, okay? LOL I cant help it, I'm giddy with excitement!



The bottoms of the pincushions are almost as pretty as the tops are.



The flower center is made for storing sewing needles. I put it together in a way that discourages the needles from infiltrating into the main body of the pincushion. I remember having a red tomato pincushion that I used for many years. When it developed holes and was no longer functional, I took it apart and reclaimed all of my lost sewing needles. You wouldn't believe how many were in there. It was a wonder that I could find a sewing needle when I needed one.



Until we meet again in October, Au revoir my little lovelies!



Have a fabulous day, everyone!

Aloha!

I tried to leave a comment on this post yesterday but blogger wouldn't let me. Bummer...anyway, I adore your pin cushions. I know how I am...and if I saw them at a craft fair, I'd end up bringing one home...or two..or three. They kind of remind me of techno-color donuts, you can't have just one.
