Show and Tell

Pin It Now!

I shared this pincushion on my blog when I received it last year but it's worth showing off again! This was a handmade gift from a very talented blogger, Pat from Bird Nest on the Ground.
I love this silk ribbon embroidery pincushion and I keep it in the blue cabinet in my dining room just because it's too pretty to put away with my sewing things. It looks big in these photos but it just fits into the palm of my hand. The needlework is so small and detailed. It's just amazing!

Your pin cushion is oh so sweet. I used to do silk ribbon embroidery and that takes some time to make those little roses....lots of work and talent went into making that little piece. Very precious!

ann marie said...

I absolutely LOVE that pincushion! It's beautiful. I'm not sure if I'd use it as such, but it sure would brighten my day just looking at it!

Joanne B. said...

thanks for sharing that lovely pin cushion again! I remembered it the first time too! It has inspired me to think about trying to make one myself with the sewing and embroidery skills I knew as a child. Wouldn't it be a lot more productive, not to mention relaxing, to turn off the tv and just sit and sew? Could you talk your friend into a mini tutorial? That would be awesome!

Margie said...

Your cushion is so beautiful, blue is my favorite color, your stitching is perfect and the fine beads just inspired, I just found your blog today, I have joined in your Show and Tell, (I think I did it right)added you to my favorites and am looking forward to checking out everyone's posts. Hugs, Margie in Ireland.
