Well, when I was cutting the hexagons for my quilt, I was also able to get enough patches to make one of my Grandmother's Fan pincushions as a thanks to Pam.
She received it this past Monday, so it's safe to share it here. It's filled with sand to help keep her pins & needles sharp. I love these pincushions. They tuck into a corner of a box when you're working on a project...or just sit out & look pretty. I've had & used the first ones I made since the 1970s...and they still work just fine & look great.
They're completely stitched by hand...which I'm finding to be very calming during these insane winter temps & snow events this year. BTW...if you want one of your own...I do have some available in my Etsy shop.
Thanks again to Pam...and if you happen to have any orphaned 1930s type print cottons just lying around...I can give them a good home...and you could have a special pincushion to boot. Just sayin'.
