Today's Flowers



Again, an attempt to link my crafts for Early Bird Christmas Crafting
with the nature of my blog (no pun intended).

Today's Flowers are Flower Pincushions



that slip into the hole in a spool of thread
 so that everything you need
when you are doing handwork
is at your fingertips.







A very long time ago, I ws gifted with one and I just love it.  A quilting friend spotted it resting at my sewing spot and asked if I thought I could make her one.  After several attempts, I figured it out.  I thought it would be the perfect project for mini-gifts for Judith's Early Bird Christmas Crafting.

Love the flower pincushions! Very clever idea and how great that you joined the "Early Bird Christmas Gifts" group. You'll be so happy you did when Christmas rolls around, which will be tomorrow! Nola

What a wonderful idea. I do a lot of hand quilting and I would always stick my straight pins in the top of my quilting thread. When my boys were young they would play with my pins and make holes in the top of my thread so I could no longer stick my pins in....there would be just one great big hole in the top of my thread. I wish I had one of these flowers back then. I would love to make one of these. Do you know where I can get a pattern?
