I truely love pincushions. There's something about the small round/square shape that seems like the perfect form that's both restrictive and also let's you be wildly creative. Pincushion posts will be a regular feature I think. The ones I've picked today are all really different and showcase the diversity of the form.
So today we start with a couple of great pincushions made for the November Pincushion Challenge/Swap. You can see all here although they've all been uploaded to flickr by the organizer and I don't have links to the individual artists, sorry. The one above is really interestingly topped with fabric selvege.
