Dare I Say ~ More Pincushions

Hello my dear friends,

I am feeling really good again and  I have made more .... pincushions of course!!

The left one is made from one of the egg cups I found a week ago and the right one is made from a little tarnished drinking vessel.

These pincushions have turned out elegant this time and yet still delicate and not overloaded.

The purple pansy and the rhinestone center, which I made from an old earring, just compliment each other so well.

This pincushion was really a lot of fun to make. I love the way the creams and whites blend so gently together and the little blue cameo with rhinestones just faces you with all its glory whilst being surrounded with old lace. This creation really makes me happy with the way it has turned out.

Creating is something that makes my heart sing. It makes me feel good about myself and what I can achieve as a artist and crafter and I hope you get the same pleasure and happiness out of what ever you like to do.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.


  1. So lovely, so sweet.

    You willnot believe it....but i just "painted"a champagne glas silver and gold inside, they used to call it "poor people silver".
    And i thouhgt:"May be i can make a pincushion of it".
    Well...the sun is shining and the weather is beautiful, so i will stay in the garden this afternoon....but after that, i will try to make a pincushion too.On my own way, of course.
