The Big Giveaway Reveal ... Ta Da !

It is a Pincushion with a compartment in the bottom to put your bits in.

Oh it is sooo cute ... I am going to have to make myself one now too!  You know how sometimes you have that lightbulb go off in your head ... and I love pincushions so wanted to come up with something of my own design.  I am very happy with this.

So if you have left me a comment ... this is what will come your way if you win the GIVEAWAY ... I loved some of the comments btw.

The Big Pin Cushion Draw is tomorrow ....



Then I had to make another one because this is what started me on my pin cushion making mission ... I am in a pincushion swap and my lovely partner likes purple ... so the purple one is for Ruth - hope she likes it.





















Inside ... and you can see they are a good size.  I wanted to have the pincushion lid come off ... but it was too impractical once I had pins in it ... so the bottom had to be the removable bit.

I am happy how it worked out and will now set about writing up the pattern.






See ... lots of room.









And just for something a little different ... some quilting I have been doing for a customer a couple of weeks ago ... but a lovely quilt.

So come back tomorrow when I will draw out the winner of the Pincushion.   You still have one day to make a comment.

Happy Quilting for now ... Jane x

I will be teaching at Australian Machine Quilting Festival - Adelaide 1-4 October 2010 Check it out!

Jane, this is the cutest pincushion just about ever!! What a clever idea to have a storage space for stuff underneath. Perhaps room a super dainty, mini sized bottle of wine or choccies? Who knows what secret objects could squeeze in there?
Love it, love it, love it!

I would love to win one of these. I really like the red one - what a great idea to store the bits - this would be good to store buttons or needles too. Oh fingers crossed and congrats on your great invention,

The pin cushion is lovely and what a great idea being able to put threads and other bibs and bobs in the base. It would look lovely in my pin cushion collection. Happy stitching!
