Fall into Fall and Accuquilt giveaways

We are down to the last chance to enter the Fall into Fall giveaways. I know it took me until a few days ago to go through all of the blogs.  There are some really great giveaways! 
I will be choosing my winners and posting about it on Saturday. 

I also wanted to share about this great Accuquilt giveaway at Alderwood Quilts

 See the cute pincushion above, I made it with some scraps of wool, pearl beads, and a 25 cent sugar bowl.  I thought it looked sweet with the yellow butterfly pins.  I love flat head pins I  find I can never have too many.  I have butterflies, flowers, buttons, suns, moons, and stars. 

Last but not least I made this giant pincushion to hold them all.  It is great for throwing on the floor when I need to pin something. It sits on top of my ribbon rack above my tool pegboard.  Notice how empty it is-I have a lot of things pinned at the moment.

Well I can't wait until Saturday!  Good luck!

Keep dreaming...Colleen aka 'butterflygirl'

Hi Colleen, cute pin cushions! I too LOVE flat head pins! I have a really hard time finding anything other than the butterflies and flowers! I see them in photos online but ....? Any suggestions on where they may be found? Thanks!

The pincushions are great. I have a couple, but could always have more. I will put it on my list of things to make - perhaps I will get to them by 2013!

Very cute pincushions! I've just started to make pincushions and am the proud owner of two! Both made from Moda Beach House, one long thin one and the other is big, fat and thick! Now that I've started using them, I wonder why I didn't make them sooner. They are so much handier and prettier than having pins in boring plastic containers.
