A Perfectly Pleasing Pin Cushion Parade!

  
 The Perfectly Pleasing Pin Cushion Parade is on again. 
It is hosted by the lovely Ida over at 
I enjoyed taking part last year and decided to join in again.
These are all of the my pin cushions. I think there
maybe one or two others hiding somewhere. Some you would have seen in last year's parade. They were either made by me or made for me by friends.
My Sewing Bird is the newest addition to my collection.
I also thought I would share my special little sewing set my auntie found for me many years ago in an op (thrift) shop. They are so tiny. You can see the size of the pin cushion
 in the top photo compared to the others. 

Can you see the little crown of beads on the cushion?
A scissor keep, tape measure holder and the cutest little thimble holder complete the set. I wonder who it was that made this beautiful set. The crochet stitches are so tiny and neat, not the mention the beading. Hopefully they would be happy to know it now lives with someone who loves it.

 I hope you have enjoyed my little parade. Head over here 
to see all the other wonderful pin cushions.
In fact, it would be great if you joined in too.

Yes the bird is lovely and the crocheted flower really is the perfect touch. I think my favorite is the beautiful flower......reminds me of a huge sunflower I grew in my backyard one year.......Your Singer is magnificent! So glad you joined the party again this year!

Your bird is super cute! It is hard to see the detail on the crocheted set but I bet it is lovely. How nice to have an heirloom to treasure.

Oh my goodness! What a pile of beautiful pincushions. I could spend all day going through that pile and admiring them all. I like your latest bird pincushion and the little sewing set is precious. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely pincushions - I too have a crochet tape measure holder like your little one - I know mine was made many years ago by a lovely lady in Beaudesert (she has long passed away) and I treasure it - It's lovely the think that the 'next generation' are looking after these treasures for them. xxx

Gosh Christine, all your pincushions are so very beautiful. What a wonderful collection!! They look amazing all displayed on your vintage sewing table too. I must pop over & see some of the other displays in the parade. Hope you are having a great week Christine. Xxx

Your wee bird is so cute (and even better when it's displayed next to that amazing sewing machine!). The pink set is definitely a treasure - your aunt had a good eye. Visiting from the Parade.

Wow, you do have a big collection. And your bird is the perfect addition. Love the little set that was found by your aunt.
