A few of my "creations"

Pincushions have become my passion!

I made my first pincushion last year for my friends mother who is a quilter. It was her 83rd birthday and I wanted to give her something fun & practical. Quilters can always use a pincushion, right? I knew she grew up on a farm so I discovered a single chicken salt shaker, that had lost it's mate, at an estate sale. I rescued the poor little thing and created my first pincushion. She loved it.

I did not give it another thought...then I made one for my daughter & myself. A friend saw mine and wanted one, then another friend, I gave them away as gifts. I just had so much fun making these things. I had even more fun searching and rescuing vintage figures from estate sales, thrift stores & junk shops. Well, the rest is history, as they say.

I had made more than I could give away and my daughter suggested I sell some. I went from two local craft sales to supplying my creations to a shop owner and opening my own online shop at
Please take a minute & visit my shop:

I've created over 200 of these little delights in the past year. I've sold them all across the U.S and have even sold some to folks in London, New Zealand & Australia! Who would ever imagine?

I can't describe the joy I get from my hobby, but the joy I see others receive from my creations is such a blessing.
Blessings & Joy!
