Grand Piano Pincushions

I can’t even find one – I probably sold every last one of them because $20 is $20 and it all added up!  And I needed every penny to buy that piano so it’s going to take me a few days to get one from Connie, find one around here or make a new one.  Then I will post the directions with pictures of not only the pincushion but also the piano.  The dogs have kept me so busy I haven’t even been able to post about the concrete windowsills yet but….I will.  And…..I hope to clean out the pincushion display case one shelf at a time to show you.  Oh boy, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!  Ha ha!  If you were impressed with the tomatoes, get your seat belts buckled, ladies!  Have I got a show lined up for you!

      Sharon – you don’t mean they are still doing exercises to Moms tape from all those years ago? The ladies at church use it, too, but I just can’t make myself join them because it’s he voice.

    Both Mother and I use our Grand Piano Pincushions every single day. I have bought 9 or 10 for gifts so I feel like one key is mine. Your posts are the highlight of my day. Thanks for taking time to share.

    I love all of your show and tells, look forward to seeing what comes next. I have one tomato pincushion,had it since high school, so it is pretty old, but not as old as some of yours. Looking forward to seeing many more.

    We’re ready for the pin cushions. Each year I’ve made pin cushions for our Project Warmth booth to sell at the quilt show, but they are rather common. They are in baskets, cups or whatever we come up with. Hobby Lobby has a nice little picnic basket about 2″x 3″ with just a handle and it works great. They sell out every year.
    Keep it all coming. We love it.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to do show and tell and posting the wonderful pictures of your collections, your four footed “guests”, and Iowa. Love it all.

    Mary, Had a glimpse of your glass display case with the pin cushions and am so looking forward to seeing them close up….and the Piano Pin Cushion.
    Yesterday’s quake was 4.6 with smaller tremblers from 2.? to 1.? !! We’re heating up from 41 to 72 degrees today. Spring is in the air as yesterday’s warm up got me busy recovering the front porch wicker cushion and small pillow……Used an old black background with huge red-orange, yellow and white Poppies print and while I sewed I had a deja vu moment about Martha Stewart showing on TV how she separated the Poppies in her garden.
