Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade

I love a pretty pincushion and have loved seeing all the pretties in blogland. So I decided to join in over at My Sister Made Me Do It and share my little collection.
This is my very first one...cross stitched by a friend.
Treasure my ones gifted by friends...
The little windmill one was made from a damaged antique quilt. My Mum made the teacup pincushion and the pretty sun hat was crocheted from my besties dear Mum.
These a very old. I made the Angel and the Shaker box one was a gift from Amish Country from a friend.
My last one is not really a pincushion. But it holds pretty pins and I  loved it too much to disassemble it. A sweet gift from my Kiwi mate Raewyn.
Ok I am off to buy those plants...really!
