I usually put crushed walnuts in my pincushions, do I have to worry about anyone with nut allergies?

no nut allergies here, but it is a thought...I normlly use polyfill mainly because of shipping international.

I think the nut allergies would be for ingesting them ... never heard of anyone allergic to touching the shells ... and in the pin cushions, you wouldn't touch anything anyway Big Grin

I agree they won't be touched and are all packed away...but Caleb has several friends who can't even be in the room with a nut or egg product...if it touches their skin or they inhale it...it could be very dangerous for them Frown

OH! Trish, that hedgehog is adorable!! Big Grin

OK! After being on the fence for so long....I think I'm "IN' & I know what I want to make....just finding the supplies..??..not sure if I can make 10 but will try!

At the last COF reterat in Branson, Ms Shawkl was giving out baggies of fine 'emory' that she uses in her pin cushions. I also have fine masonary sand that I use when I make the pin cushion on my thread catchers...will us 1 or the other in the ones I make for this swap.

Safe travels Ely...

LOL,I think if I find bigger eyes for the hedie he won't look so much like a beady eyed mouse,LOL

I have severl more patterns to try out, so I'll be sending in an assortment as always.

I wonder how mixing a bit of emery with the sand would be Lynne? It'd sure stretch out the use of the emery for sure, it's hard to get here, and expensive because I have to have it shipped from the US...

I often do that Terry, and sometimes even wait until i have a huge order for fabrics etc...as some companies offer free shipping if the purchase order is over 250-300 dollars. My family and board members here have been so helpful and supporitive of my hobby Smile

I also try to bring home as much as I can when I come for a visit...lol...this year I'm hoping to get lots of items made from stash, as it has grown...lol...

I agree, KSunshine. I'm working on my third set of pincushions for future swaps. I just discovered that the magazine Quilts and More has the cutest pincushion pattern every month. I just can't resist making them.

Even after a liberal hare cut this dust bunny is much too big for a pincushion. Think I'll adjust the pattern somewhat and do a sphere instead. Can't see the hands anyway and the feet don't help it stand up.

Evelyn, that dust bunny literally just made me LOL...very unique... and cute in an odd sort of way Smile love it! I so wish we could have a mini retreat where all we did was eat and make pincushions and enjoy each others company...what a hoot that would be!

"What a hoot that would be!" reminded me of the owls I made last Halloween. These would be fun to use in a swap too. What fun we'd have! These pincushions are so small we could get a bunch made at a retreat!

After finishing the wild pincushion I got out the basket of goodies I'd won at guild. Surprised to find a quilt pattern called "Dustbunny Quilt" by Becky Jackson. It spoke to me and after grabbing the leftover yarn from the trash can I made this wallhanging last night. It's going in my entry hall. Now I need to make more of the dustbunnies because there's never just one. In the sashing is written "no cleaning allowed" and "this is a dustbunny sanctuary".

Thanks, Lindy. I've been on a small project kick for several months. Pincushions and taberunners fit the bill.

Love those birds! The chick's mighty sweet too. Our hostess will have quite a variety when these all arrive.

I have a friend drooling over the pincushions. She's not computer savvy (her IBM uses 3 1/2" floppies so is rarely used just for typing). Can I sign her up if she's not on HGTV? She lives 3 blocks from me. She has an awesome sewing room with wonderful built-in cabinets. I need to take photos to inspire you. She's decided that she's too old to join the tech world but I have a great aunt who started on Facebook when she turned 103! Keeps the family in gossip!
