I've made 3 different pincushions this weekend - all as part of various swaps I'm taking part in.
The beauty of pincushions, is that they are quick and easy, but at the same time, they're open to tons of embellishment - my favorite part of any project!!!

This one is made using a china sugar bowl that I found at the thrift store .... it had a price tag of 99c - who doesn't love a deal like that:-)

This one really feels at home, after the week of cold and snowy weather we have had here in Texas!!!

This one is adorable, and HUGE!!! I loved the mouse, and he was a little larger than the items I normally put on my pincushions, but he fit the theme perfectly. No problem .... I just increased the size of the cushion. It turns out that I really like the fact that it is so big ..... so much so, that I think one of them will be on my "make for me" list. I also made the little heart pins that are in the cushion. I found the perfect size heart beads at Joann's a while back. I just put a little glue on the pin head, slipped the bead onto the pin, and there you have it - heart head pins!!!

Off to watch the end of the Superbowl now - until next time !!!
