Today is Tuesday Treasures ....

..............  hosted by dearest Melody




this is a lovely silver frame that was once my Grannie's
(4" square)


 ... and this is a pretty embroidered doily from the op shop! ....



..... so I introduced them .....
..... they make a lovely couple.....


.... perfect for next to me in the lounge ....

It's very hard to resist a new pincushion .... especially when it is ultra easy to make....
and using a special treasure

I first saw these framed pincushions HERE at Sharon's place...  and there is a tutorial HERE at Sew Many Ways.....

Righto, Gotto Go .... I think I'll go wandering some op shops for antique frames - but only after I have visited the other Tuesday Treasures.... why don't you join us today?
