Pincushion Day In The Beehive

28 comments:

  1. Oh, Anna. I also bought the book "Bowl Me Over" I started to make the Bee Kind cushion too. I love my wool, but I am also following you on Stitch Tubes. You are my mentor. My cross stitch has been on the back burner and I picked it up after watching you.

  4. Pin cushions are such fun quick projects. I just made a sunflower pincushion for a guild exchange. It turned out so cute I think I may need to make another one for myself.
    I love Instagram but have never figured out how to post anything there. I think I need a young grandchild to help me with all that technical stuff!

    1. yes...all the techy stuff is challenging for sure. I may have to start making 2 of the same one at the same time...so I can keep one also!

  7. Anna, you inspire my quilting, wool and cross stitch projects---thank you. I am not on any social media and sometimes feel as though I am missing out on the fun. My son is a Federal Agent and told me to be VERY careful if I decide to join, I decided I didn't need more worry in my life. So, be VERY careful. Thank you for your videos. Linda M

  9. Anna, I have been saving all my selvedges and I want to make .some pincushions for Christmas gifts. I recently finished Pat Sloan’s Main Street sewalong with Downtown Abbey FQs so I have lots of pretty selvedges. Thanks for all the pincushion instructions.

    1. Selvage pincushions are the best because given the right selvage you can tuck a message on them :)

  10. Anna, I have been following you for a long time! You're such an inspiration! I also don't do instagram or even much FB anymore. Same reasons, security. BUT, I do try to quilt daily & just about have finished a beauty for our first!!! granddaughter!! I may have to make the pin cushions..they're awfully cute, esp. in wool!

  11. Such cute pin cushions! I also noticed your nails look so nice, so while I watched i gave myself a manicure! My cuticles sure needed it! We are not getting rain at the moment but it is raining acorns on my deck- lots of them this year- you almost need a hard hat!

  13. I looked online for the sevenberry fabric at Stitchin' Post. Not there. Apparently, that's the line but not sure what the name of that fabric is.

    1. that is the only thing on the selvage...I'd call them up and say can I talk to Jackie she knows which fabric she used in her pincushion, lol

  14. I am one of the lurkers. I still work full time as a labor and delivery nurse,38 years actually, so my stitching time is limited. A friend recommended I view your you tube videos and I have been so inspired. I am now a true SF101 believer. I have posted a few of my projects on Instagram but I am definitely a quilter, smogsboard like you.

    1. I can't think of a better career than being a nurse...so much variety and it does help put ones heart in balance. We are flexible peeps, lol

  15. Love your pincushions! I will have to look for that book! Why the ground nuts for pin cushions? Do they help keep the pins sharp? I love lavender - I always have it in my garden. But I cannot have too much around me or it triggers allergies so I for one appreciate your thoughtfulness!

  16. loved the video - I purchased that book to make bowl fillers once I retire (14 weeks, but whose counting!). I'll have to go thru my fabric and rethink some of those designs - the forest fabric is adorable!
