Crazy Pincushions.........

Many of you will have followed our process of making pincushions... or seen them on other people's blogs..... 13 of us have been sending our felt bases to far and wide to be decorated by someone, sent to another far and wide for more decor and so on........ if you are interested you can see the progress HERE

Some of the pincushion bases are arriving back home so I thought I would show you some of them... and also provide links which will take you to their owners and you can read up about them...... I hope you have fun......

the detail in these pincushions is amazing.... the bases are 6" in diameter or less which will give you an idea of how intricate the little embelishments are....

Sheila's Base..... (Nova Scotia, Canada)

and Jacqueline's..... (Florida, USA)

Roslyn's base...... (New South Wales, Australia)

Laura's base..... (North Dakota, USA)

and Dianne's .... (Nova Scotia, Canada)

Dianne's is the first I've seen made up into a pincushion which you can see HERE

I think they are fantastic

Hopefully in the next few weeks others (including mine) will arrive 'home'

We have been using the idea and guidelines of Kaaren from The Painted Quilt.... you can see her tutorial HERE to make the base and HERE is a tutorial for decorating the base
~ I wonder if you will be tempted? ~

Wool is  a wonderful medium and the pins slide in so easily but firmly, but this could be done in cotton just as easily .....
