Now I am all sorts of informed on the peacock: Together Males and females they are peafowl. Your pincushions are amazing! What a wonderful history. Thanks for sharing with us. I love the new finish!
That is my favorite pincushion of all! Wonderful finish, Jolene! I just love it - I'm afraid if I tried that finish, it would be very wonky!
Great history lesson as well! What a great post! I always wondered if there was any difference in all the names. Beautiful finish, too. I love the little bunny on the side.
Absolutely stunning! It looks ancient :o Thank you for the quick lesson. I really learned a lot!
Do you have any of the antique pieces that you showed? Pins were once so expensive they were accepted as currency - hence the phrase "pin money".
You should SELL them One of your nicest pieces! Well who knew the humble pincushion had such a rich history. Thank you for sharing that information.
Now, none of those you pictured could compare to the one you made. You did a fabulous job and it is truly an heirloom piece. Very beautiful piece you have created there!
I love the effect of the staining on it Thank you for the history of the pincushion. It was very interesting to read. I love this drum pinkeep and you've aged it so well. I also like the extra bits you attached on top of it.
Looooooooove your peacock pincushion!! Miss Prim sure looks great on the stained linen. I enjoyed reading about the history of pincushions. That little bird with its bum in the air is just precious! Alice xxx. I love that pinkeep drum, it is just so prim. Thanks for the hisory lesson , very interesting.
Love your pincushion finish! I'd love to hear more about using sawdust as stuffing. I think it intriques me because my father was a carpenter and I grew-up around sawdust.
He just swept it up and threw it away. I enjoyed the pincushion history. Hands on Design and Hands Across the Sea!! I cannot wait to watch!! I just love all your prim designs and just saw on PSS facebook that you will be at the next retreat in LAncaster!!!!
I am hoping to go--I live in central New York State and so it isn't all that far! Lisa K. Thank you for the lovely visit at the farm Lori and Peter, donkeys, puppies and everyone else.
A treasured trip always to be remembered. Cookies and magical herb brewed water to cast a spell for me to buy, buy, buy threads, linen patterns and do dads. Thanks for the hospitality and hugs.
