OK, so WHY - may I ask, is my scrap bag of string growing larger if I'm using up strings on quilts? I started these all at quilt camp with Laura and Linda, but just about finished them all this weekend. And if you ask, are some of them different shades of black - yes they are. I was trying to use up all kinds of fabric on these! They will go to the local hospital for children/babies when I"m finally done. The one below with the 2 friendship stars needs 2 more stars yet. And the 2 others below are more baby size.
And because everyone is sharing their fun pincushions I thought I would share mine with you - not that I have that big of a collection! I have a few, but the ones I have I LOVE! The big black chicken one I made and put on a candlestick holder! I love that one! The tiny crow one holding the back was made for me by a friend. It is really cute but tips easy so I don't use it too much. I also got the heart one from a friend. I love the colors on that one and it is light and easy to carry around. But what I mostly use is the pincushion on the bag. I have 2 upstairs for hand sewing and one by my machine. They are so nice since I have a bag for strings and the heavy pincusion to hold it off the edge of the table.
