What sort of Pincushion do you use???

Bluberry Lane Designs is having a giveaway, you post a comment and show a pic on your blog of you pincushion, well the one you use that is!

The big one is my favourite one, it sits in a basket next to where I sit.. I have things hanging off it, like scissors a strawberry to sharpen my needles with etc.. it is a pincushion NOT for the faint hearted, as it is HUMUNGOUS.. it is a Christine Book Designs pattern, I did it at a 'stitch in' she runs each year in Sydney (didn't go last year) and it has wee pockets around the outside! I can't beleive how DUSTY it is though, I might have to give it a bath! and it may surprise you all that it is made in 30's and redwork! LOL

The smaller one is in my Yazzi sewing bag I drag everywhere.. it was part of a gift my friend Ramona in Victoria made for me.. I just love it as well.. she made me the now Lissa famous drawstring dilly bag (I have made so many of these it isn't funny), a cotton reel keeper and this gorgeous pincushion..

still waking up, we had a bad storm here last night, no power and it went for HOURS.. scary stuffs.. kids freaking out... dog freaking out.... cat freaking out... Dags sleeping through it...

Your pincushions are great - especially the big one - what a fabby idea to have pockets round the edge! Sorry you had such a horrid storm - hope the weather is better now. Lucy x
