My dear friend, Ida, is hosting the second annual Pincushion Parade and it is time to link up. I won't bore you with the slew of pincushions from years past as you can see them HERE, but I will show you my new pincushions from this year. I LOVE these little bird pincushions and they are so practical. Filled with crushed walnut shells they are the perfect pincushion to take along on trips. They are a free downloadable pattern from Deonn at Quiltscapes. Thanks, Deonn.
Now....you might ask why I have several birds. Well...I am hosting what I hope will be our first annual Beachside Quilting Retreat this weekend and I made them for the gals who will be attending. More on that later, but I have to say that I have never attended a quilting retreat so this is a big adventure to not only attend, but to also host.
This year I also added a turtle to my collection and he holds all of my flat pins. This is a pattern from Sue at Supermom No Cape.
Be sure to check out the Perfectly Pincushion Parade and show off your pincushions. There are great prizes to be won.
Dear hubby celebrated one of those milestone birthdays this week so we had a big family celebration. One of our granddaughters celebrated her 17th birthday along with him.
