I took a break for a moment, well not really!  I intended to clean up my mess before I started a new project.  I have been wanting to make some pincushions!  A few weeks back I made some Cathedral Window Pincushions which I loved (and I really need to make some more of those!  they were fun!)  I found a Dresden Star Pincushion on All People Quilt.  Go ahead download the free pattern and make yourself one or two!

As much as I love the vintage look of Ric Rac I wasn't as please with the two that I used it on!  What did I use for stuffing you may ask.... On two I used the grated Walnut Shells purchased in a Quilt Shop  and the third I used table salt, since I ran out of the Walnut Shells!

So now I must go clean my space so I can make another mess.... Oh wait, there seems to be a pattern here!

Happy Tuesday (it is a rainy day here!)


  1. I do like your pincushions - thanks for sharing the link to the tutorial!

  2. They're so pretty. I don't use pincushions but I love to make them and display them in my sewing room. Thanks for the link.
