I have joined a monthly Pinkeep Kit Club where I will receive the supplies to make a Pinkeep - just another name for a pincushion. The club is from Primitive Gatherings - a quilt shop in Wisconsin that I would love to visit some day. Here is the 1st pinkeep I made for January. I added the machine stitching at the bottom. They used a button that had a "J" on it and a black bow but I like the machine embroidery better. I filled it with crushed walnut shells- they are supposed to keep your needles sharp. This is a great way to display my hat pins.
