Pink Saturday Post

WAHOO, it is Pink Saturday

I love Pink Saturday, it is so much fun to go around and see how everyone is using their Pink.

I am a quilter and have been sewing since I was 13....and....that has been a long, long time.

What is one of the main stays of a person that sews??

Pin cushions, after all one has to have a place to safely store all those pins and needles, to keep them up off the floor (hopefully) and out of feet. Not just any ole pin cushion will do though, and as with all things one needs more then one.

My Pink pincushions














Now for a closer look at each one, if you'd like. First is a sweet cupcake pincushion. I am sorry to say I don't remember the name of the lady who made this sweet pincushion.














This darling chair pincushion was made for me by my friend Jill Phillips. Isn't it pretty? She also made the fancy pins it holds. Remember you can click any picture for a closer look.



















This pincushion box was made for me by Kerry Leslie, she has a blog here. Check out the details in the following pictures.












































My GF, Candi made this one for me. If you will refer to the first picture you will see it closed, then it opens to reveal great pockets for all your sewing needs and a pincushion and needle book. Candi's blog is here. Candi is also a new Pink Saturday poster. She makes these for folks so if you need a great gift for a sewer, ask her about it.














Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed my Pink pincushions. I am sending Pink wishes to everyone for a blessed Pink Saturday.

I want to thank our hostesses Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound for making

Until next week. God Bless.
