More snow = more time 
to catch up on blogs I love like
She's part of a pincushion parade
What fun! 
I want to play too! 
(even though I rarely use pins, I think the cushions are sooo cute!)

Here's my three pincushions (without too many pins hee-hee)...

My oldest son made this one in 5th grade. His teacher guided them to hand sew hexes.
The class made two twin size quilts to give away, and each student made a pincushion as a Mother's Day present. 

I made this one a few years ago...

and this one just the other week (impulsively because the cute cupcake holder was on sale after Christmas and I don't bake cupcakes, but wanted the holders! hee-hee encore!)...

Thanks for stopping by! 
Check out the rest of the parade at
