My Place and Yours ...My Pin Cushion / Pin Cushions ...

Gadzooks I couldn't believe this weeks MPAY theme ...
pincushions have been foremost on my agenda this week ...

My Pin Cushion ...
is full of mega sentimental and outrageous memories.
She was owned by a clothing designer mate of mine ...
who departed his sweat shop 15 years ago ...
OMG the stories this little gem could tell ...
would make your pins rust!
Plus this week I've made Pin Cushions for your thumb ...
or your wrist ...
for Marrickville Festival tomorrow!

Great minds at work for this MPAY theme.

See more Pin Cushions HERE.

OMG Cherie; a meme mad for you or WHAT?!

I ADORE your turtle & the fabulous pins in him; perfect & you have been so productive! Your wrist pin cushions look so much better than my last dodgy attempt! You're stall is going to be a hit!

Thanks for playing along again this week. :)

Love the little pin turtle!
I could never use a thumb or wrist cushion, I'd be sure to miss and stab myself.
I still have the one I made from an empty washed out tuna can, filled with cottonwool and covered with fabric, hand stitched because I couldn't machine a can....
