Pincushions!

 I love pincushions!
As a quilter of over 30 years I have had many.  But there are always those special ones in any collection that a person tends to favor and set aside.
These are some of mine.
Sorry for the flash glare in that picture.  Barbara Jean at Treasures from the Heart made me the one on the right.  It's one of my very favorites!  Had to show you the top!
Next are two pillow type pincushions.  The long pink one in the back I found at an antique store and is old and used sparingly.  The beautiful white one with the children on it is from Dorothe over at Den Lille Lade .  Another of my favorites!  The cute little bird pinkeep was a gift from a friend in my quilting group.

And last I have a beautiful shell pincushion that Dawn over at The Feathered Nest made me.  The  large, round, old crazy quilt cushion I use sparingly as it getting pretty delicate.  The other round one is wool with wool applique and has a pocket for holding sewing necessities.
So there you have some of my favorites!  I will be posting Grace's finished journal next weekend for those of you who asked.
Have a great weekend!  Take care of each other!

I love all your pin cushions! I'm not much of a sewer, but I have need for several of them. I can't stand those red tomato type ones that flop all over. I'm on the hunt for a couple with a heavy base and that's pretty too. You've inspired me to keep looking.
