i have started a new pincushion.it was inspired by one i saw on the crazy about pincushions list. mine is made of wool, tapestry and linen. i am using the needles n thread tutorials to learn the stitches. thanks needles n thread. the beading does not show up it is on the stripe of lace it looks good in person. there are so many pin cushions i want to make and dolls to paint. i don't seem to get much done these days except housework,laundry, cooking and dishes. i need to get busy on Christmas presents. with the tight economy i want to make as many gifts as i can.
