I Love Pincushions



I have never been a collector (except for fabric that is). And, I don't know when it happened; but, the other day I was looking around my sewing room and realized that I must collect pincushions. They seemed to be peeking out from everywhere. Most are handmade. I know I have more tucked here and there. Some exist in my back room, that gets less and less use these days, and some live in my travel sewing totes. And each and every one has a story. I have decided that it is OK after all to have a collection and now that I know it, I intend to gleefully add to it. Gee, I wonder if I have other collections of which I am not aware?

How sad am I? I only have 1 soft pincushion, but have 2 of those oval magnetic ones! So far..but then I haven't been keeping an eye out for any either. I love that piggy one Marilyn....soooo cute...but then, they're all nice in their own individual way. Hugs and thanks for sharing. Naomi
