Primitive Pincushions & Sewies to Drool Over!

Wow! Look at the totally awesome pincushion and sewies I got in the mail today! These were made by Deb H for the Pincushion/Sewie Swap we're doing at the P&R and she spoiled me good! Thank you Deb!

This first one is a gorgeous prim pincushion out of civil war repro fabric that sits upon a little box--great for storing sewing tools and notions in. I love the little extras she pinned to the top, some great old buttons!

Oh you should see the punchneedle work on this beauty! I love this bird! A gorgeous sewing pocket also out of civil war repros. The pictures just don't show how beautiful these pieces truly are!
Here's a view of the pocket open, complete with a prim pincushion stitched in and then on the side is a very unique sock darner from Lancaster, PA and a wonderful smelling lavendar sachet.

Deb these are absolutely gorgeous and I'm just tickled pink! Thank you!!!!

Hi. I just found your blog & ordered your little shoe pattern. How clever of you. An E pattern. That's a new one for me.
