Thirties pin cushion

I spent a very enjoyable week with a lovely friend who came up for a visit from Sydney, Australia. As she is a quilter too,  there was of course much talk about quilts, fabric, quilting books, patterns etc. She brought me a lovely little kit to make a "Thirties" pin cushion. We decided to make one each and had a cosy day at home stitching.

This is my pin cushion, all stitched by hand I might add,
and this is the one my friend made!
Here they are together; aren't they just lovely?


I hope you are having a good week too.

They are great! I love the hexies and I am really falling for 30's fabric, not that I need more fabric but if I see some you never know what might happen!

Hallo Vreni,

wunderschön, Dein Nadelkissen. Zusammen mit netten Menschen macht es einfach Freude von Hand zu nähen, weil es sehr entspannend ist.

Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende!
