My Pin Cushions for the Parade

 “Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.” – Eleanor Roosevelt



I am linking up today on the Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade. 







My favorite pin cushion is this one my son, Jeremy made for me when he was about 12 years old........at the time I had no pincushions at all so he made this one for me.  His sewing skills have improved but I wouldn't change a thing about this pin cushion.




I made these three little pin cushions for the parade.......


First a pincushion attached to the top of a little jar that can be used for pins, buttons, etc...............




.........and then I used some of the selvages I've been collecting to make this one.................

and finally a red hat complete with ribbon and feather!

Here is a pincushion my sis gave me............
and last but not least.............I think I found this at an estate sale...........the bottom says it was made in Italy..........it has a pretty ceramic flower on the top and is another of my favorites.................
...........and that's all I have to show today...........but I know where you can see lots more...........click the Picture below to be transported to this year's Perfectly Pleasing Pin cushion Parade link-up page!  There will be lots of link-ups for you to enjoy......and why don't you join the party while you're there and link-up your own pin cushions?

Pretty pincushions Ida. The red hat is gorgeous and I also like the idea of using selvages, I have been saving mine to use one day. The ceramic cushion is lovely too, rather unusual.
