my place and yours

The theme this week from My place and yours is your favourite pincushion.

Now I have more pincushions in my house than I will ever need .....

but this one is my absolute favourite....

My wonderful friend, and stitching buddy, Helen, made this for me Christmas 2009.

I love it because it is everything I adore...

Vintage, lace, old buttons, beautiful stitchery, gorgeous pink floral fabrics...

It even has a gorgeous needlecase attached..

Isn't it just too beautiful??

Too beautiful to stink a pin in it????

I'm off to see who else is playing along today. You can leave your link HERE if you want to play too.

Okay I will confess...I only have one pincushion, all say "ah" but hey that's okay at least I have one. Yours is absolutely beautiful and I am so glad my one pincushion doesn't look like that because I would definitely NOT be sticking pins in it!!!
