Weighted pincushion...

Ahhh...spring is definetly coming closer...and closer..
cant really call it spring here.. snow is still falling and nothing is melting...
ok...just a little but it doesn´t show...

Bought some grape hyacinths...
...just love to follow them day by day...
aint these colours just lovely...

And belive it or not May Britt and Kris..I have another finish....
Saw this pattern some time ago and felt..this is something for me..
a weighted pincushion...with removable tidy bin...super clever
You can have it beside the sewingmachine...take it with you to the sofa and to class...
and this pattern comes from this talented lady
Oh..my I´m getting closer in my organizing ..don´t you think...
And I must say I love this one...
Ok I did some mistakes and did some changes...but it´s an easy pattern to follow...
Oh...dont look so close... Yes I have an orange thread cutter... gosh it is ugly...but work well..
I filled mine with crushed walnuts and just a little lavender...
so I enjoy every time I put a pin into it...
Sweet bliss...
btw...Kris ..do you see your ( mine now...) buttons...


  1. Hi Stina, That is great. I have something similar, but yours is more versatile. I love to use the crushed walnuts too. They definitely add a little more weight to the pincushion.

  2. Very cute and useful. I also use crushed walnuts. I'm going to have to try the lavender. Sounds lovely.

  3. Now that's super handy! Love all the lil' storage spots along with the pincushion. You did a great job!

  4. Very cute Stina -- I love the fabrics you've used!

  5. Smart og fin sak. Takk for linken til Oh Fransson. Jeg syr nå på Anni Downs engler. Et koselig mønster. Jeg har sett dine og noen av de andre sine i An Angels story club. Inspirerende!! Takk.
    Ha en fin uke!

  6. Oj vad fin den blev.. Här har jag inte kommit igång. Det har varit tisdagen då vi har tjejerna här..

    Ha det så gott!

  7. Nice finish Stina! I love the flowers in your banner. So yellow and happy! Lavender is one of my favourite smells, aren't flowers wonderful!

  8. That does look really handy and useful too. I would think it would be graet when you go out sewing and there's no table next to you.

  9. OMG, I was just thinking I needed to make me one and here you have where the pattern is and all. Thank you so much, I really like the way yours turned out.
    So glad spring is on it's way for you.
    Keep Stitchen'

  10. Stina, I like your orange thread cutter, mine is orange too. Orange is the new pink. And I have never used crushed walnuts, how fine do you crush them? The smell would be heavenly especially with the lavender.

  11. Hey Stina! Woo! Hoo! Great finish and so pretty! I love the combination of old-fashioned rose floral wtih the check - it just shouts shabby chic! And YOUR buttons look great - just the right project to use them! Enjoy using your lovely pincushion/sewing caddy - Bear Hugs! KRIS

  12. Hi Stina...Thank you so much for the birthday greetings...how lovely to come here and be greeted by the beautiful yellow flower ♥♥♥

  13. Thank you so much for linking to this pattern. I have been wanting something like this to take to class to help me to be tidier and less of a sprawler. :-)

    I love the colour combination of Spring fabrics you made your in. The pdfis printing as I type.
    Thank you.

  14. What a great idea! I will have to have a look at this one!
    Thanks for the link & good luck!!

  15. Så mycket fint du visar min vän !
    Må så gott !

  16. Great job Stina! And very handy as well.

  17. I love your finish...and so useful!!! Everything you make is lovely!

  18. I bet that is really nice with the lavender in it. Great job.
    Do you like the walnut shells in the pincushion? I have seen them advertised on some internet sites and have wondered about putting pins in them.

  19. What a super design for the pin cushion - perfect for everything a sewing girl needs.

  20. I love it! I have a simpler one, but yours is so much prettier! A beautiful finished project!

  21. Ooooh, Stina. A pincushion! An absolutely wonderful pincushion!!! I'm mad about pincushions so right after I finish typing this, I have to check out the link that you provided for the pattern. Thank you for sharing.

    And remember...

    You can NEVER have too many pincushions!

  22. Love that pincushion!! Great idea -- think I'll go check the link out too!

  23. Wow, Stina, very nice indeed. And thank you for the link!

  24. Gosh you have been busy! This is very cute and will be very handy.

  25. Lovely Stina ... and useful too.
    I like the sampler fabric on the outside of the bin.

  26. I need to make one of these!
    I love how yours turned out.
    Such pretty fabrics and I bet it smells heavenly.
