and the utilitarian ones:

I've never seen the tomatoes in so many colors. The chairs are adorable.

I like the rocking chair with spool holders the best.

I have the wooden rocker too. Bought it at an estate sale many years ago. Thought about recovering the cushion, but think it would loose the nastalgia.

I also have the tomatoe pincushion I used in home-ec class...hundreds of years ago!

Thanks for showing us your pincushions! I seem to remember my grandmother having a green rocker like that--it brings back fond memories. I also love your different coloured tomatoes--green and pink! How cool!

I should not have looked, I should not have looked, I should not have looked - LOL... that rocker one with thread holder is just too darling!

And - I think everyone, at one point in time or another, has had a tomatoe pin-cushion - aren't they a true classic?

Cheers!

I have the tomato pincushion too, I think everyone does. I cut the little strawberry off though, it was getting tangled up on the stuff in my sewing bag. Besides that, I only have one other pincushion, one my mom gave me. It's all beat up, but it's my favorite.

Hi Karen, love the pincushions!! My mom used to have one of the rocking chair ones. Wish I would have thought to grab it after she passed away.
I do love your little bunny in his arm chair..that is soooo cute!!
I think I've seen a little chair like that to make from cardboard and fabric..the seat covers up a tiny sewing box.
Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Finn

I just love your pincushions : so cute ! ...

Karen, I went back to your yoyo layout how-to's. I just love the way you laid them out. However, Could you give me some details about how the yoyo is attached on the square ? - I must have skipped something (I understand quite quickly... but you've got to explain a long time ! LOL)
Thanks, Karen ...

Ohhh, I wouldn't dare stick pins in the bunny! You might never get another Easter basket!

Love your pincushions. I'm going to look for one of those rocking chairs tomorrow at Round Top. I forgot to tell you...I had a little sewing table shipped from NJ. It belonged to my mother. Unfortunately, the one swing out drawer came lose, but I'm hoping my husband can fix it. It has a regular drawer and then the swing out one that holds spools of thread on wooden dowels. Maybe you've seen one of these? I'm thrilled with it. I just have to squeeze it in here somewhere. :) Betty
