Linking up to Beth's Love Laugh Quilt for her Pincushion Parade! When you use these workhorses a lot, it's nice to have something that evokes inspiration and good feelings.
Just used a candy tin I already had. (Mmmm, those grapefruit candies were tangy and juicy and good!)
Added two powerful, donut-shaped magnets left over from another project. No need to glue them, they just stick to the tin.
Voila! Attractive and useful!
This teacup was a Christmas ornament, given to me many years ago by a BFF, Pam. A year ago, after Christmas, instead of putting it away, I filled it with steel wool and a wool felt cover. It's very sweet when I'm hand stitching, with my spool of thread resting on the attached saucer.
I was brand new to quilting, and brand new to the quilt blogosphere, when I entered Cindy's give-away on Live a Colorful Life. She makes wonderful things using the selvages on the edges of fabric, and made a few of these to commemorate the Bloggers' Quilt Show. I was so happy to win this pincushion, but I have yet to be brave enough to show anything in the BQS. Maybe this year!
Thank you, Beth for such a fun idea!
