Hat Pincushion

First off, we're chillin'!!!       Air conditioner is now fixed and cooling well!!!

I wanted to share one of my pincushions.  This one is made with felted wool.  I found the pattern in a magazine and made three, each a different color.  I made one for my Mother, my sister and myself.  I like working with wool and I really like to embroidery. 

Isn't this the cutest little bird hat pin.

I tried a little experiment. I wondered if I could tell any difference in the quality of a picture when I reduced the pixels. It makes uploading pics so much faster. Can you tell which one is reduced? The one on the left is the reduced pixel one. I learn something new every day.

Seeing this little Robin reminds me of Sunday morning. I was outside watering the front lawn about 6:30 a.m. Our water hose has a leak in it that causes a small fountain. There were six Robins in the fountain bathing. What a wonderful site!!  Brings joy in the morning to see God's creatures having such fun!!


  1. This is so absolutely fabulous! I LOVE pin cushions and this is so adorable and the little bird perched on top is just wonderful!!!!

  2. I can't tell any difference in the 2 pictures. Very cute pincushion. I love the bird too!

  3. I can't tell a difference either. Maybe if you zoomed in or something...I wonder where you got the bird hat pin from? It is very cute.

  4. I am the sister and I must have lost my pin cushion. I am so sad.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!
