Pinned Up Pleasures (I was trying to be clever..)


First off I would like to thank Madam Samm (@Sew We Quilt ) and  Kristen (@Meadowbrook) for hosting this event. I always love the hops and try to participate in as mayny as I can (I seem to do more hops in the late summer through december... hmm...)

Now, I would like to show off some of my lovlies (well I will let you decide that.)

These here I stitched up super quickly for the rommie swap last year at Sewing Summit, and my first ever (I loved it! Side note: If I still do not have a baby by next year I want to try really hard to go again!).

Last month on the 15th I freeked out and though it was my day already (I miss took the month :P) and rushed to get this pittiful thing created. Only to go to post it and find that I had a whole month (Whew!). It turns out this is the one I use the most.

Here are the pin cushions I own. The other two were given to me in swaps. :)

This is one I send out in exchange for the orange one (you can't tell but it is a Hexie)

Here is my work table all disorganized and ready to have PCs made :) All are being donated to church for Oktoberfest.

In keeping with the unmentioned owl theme, here is MY owl contribution. I actually really LOVE it and might have to keep it for my self.

A pile of what I can up with super quick.

I had these little cross stitch patterns all done up but I did not know what to do with them. Now I do.

This is a sample from a Joann store'r embroidery machine. I cut it out and stuffed it. What do you think?

Last year sometime (I am never able to keep track of when something was done if I do not log it right away) I was asked to test this pattern (I believe a post for it is in the archives) and I turned it into a chushion as well.

These are my favorites :) I loke to call them Bon-Bons. They look good enough to eat :) I used washi tape to hide to old edges of the lids.

My fave is the one with the Cheerys. Grandma offered to buy the blue striped one from me as well.


Some mason jars form birthday jam :)

Now for a giveaway. You can see these lovlies here below. They are all yours, all you have to do is leave me a comment with a link to your fave pincushion pattern. (Hint: when you are on a web page, go to the top where the web address is, copy it and paste it in the comment box. Easy right?)

  1. Wow, you have covered all the bases! Love your assortment of pin cushions!

  2. They are all adorable, thanks for sharing.

  3. You've been busy!

  4. All are cute!! You have been busy!

  5. You have quite a collection and I like them all!

  6. Wow! You have been industrious! Very nice work! I really like the pincushion 2 ladies made on the hop today. The pattern is for purchase here:

  7. Wow you have been busy - they are all lovely - thanks for sharing.

  8. Love your pin cushions! Thank you for sharing.

  9. Love your pincushions, but having 3 rescue kitties I have to use a magnetic pin cushion. Otherwise I have a little black female Bombay who helps me by pulling out pins with her teeth. Last night the older tabby grabbed thread from the machine and started chewing. So you see I have my challenges! Those give-aways would make a beautiful wall hanging or mini-quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    This is my fave, thanks for the giveaway. Yours are great too!

  11. Lovely pincushions, all. The mason jars with room for some quilting notions, threads and such would make a neat thing for the guild country store table next March. HMMMMMM

    THX for the giveaway opportunity. I really like this one from Curry Bungalow but it is a tie for the handbag pin cushion pattern from Linda at buzzing and bumbling.

  12. Very lovely, all of them. you've been so busy! Loved seeing all of them.

  13. Lovely pin cushions. What a good idea to use your little cross stitch pieces as pin cushion tops. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Pretty variety of pincushions! Thanks for sharing :)

  15. Wow so many beautiful items! They are all so sweet.

  16. WOW! What a showing of pincushions! Great job!

    I am in love with all of the hedgehog pincushions I have seen all over blogland lately. here is a free pattern for one!

    Thank you for the chance to win the awesome embroidery pieces! LOVE that orange flower!

  17. What lovely pincushions! I love your variety, too!

    This is a classic little pinnie


  18. Your pin cushions are absolutely amazing. Your roomie swaps are amazing. It's funny how things work out - you hustled last month on the 15th to get you pin cushion finished and now it's the one you use the most! I can see why - it's adorable. The bow on the hexie is a great touch! I can see why Grandma wants to buy one of your pin cushions - they are just "over the moon!"
    Now one of my favorite pin cushions although I haven't made it yet is - the mannequin pin cushion - there is a youtube for it:
    and there is a pattern
    They suggest using candle holders for the bases. I think they are just adorable. I want to make one and have had the pattern downloaded for quite sometime.

  19. Love the bon-bons:) Wow, have you been busy making pin cushions. LOL on getting the date mixed up--I just figured out how to schedule a blog post which was really confusing for me last year in a hop. Thanks for sharing.

  20. Owls have definitely been a favorite subject of this hop! Yours turned out lovely. You were busy too....lots of cute ones!

  21. Lots of lovely pincushions , such a nice variety , thanks for sharing

  22. Really beautiful pincushions. Love the counted cross stitch ones.

  23. I am sure glad that you had that extra month to play and make a few more pin cushions. thanks sew much for sharing

  24. Thanks for sharing all your creations heres a link to one;

  25. Hi!!! You sure do have a lot of pretty pinnies!!!! Love the bon bons!!!

  26. How nice. I love you pincushions. I do not have a favorite pattern, mostly because I tend to design as I go. So my favorite pincushion right now is the one I made for this blog hop.

  27. I am enjoying the hop immensely. A whole extra month to use to make pincushions and you certainly made it worthwhile. I do like your "quick" creation, too; I'm thinking it's the lovely blues.

  28. Wow, you've got a great collection! The jar lids are just terrific, especially covered with washi tape, how cute!

  29. So many cute and clever pin cushions!! My favorite are the bon bons!
