I popped into our local needlework shop with carefully averted eyes, so as not to have my attention drawn to any new merchandise and just to wish the owner a happy Christmas, when I noticed she was unpacking tiny metal ring pincushion bases in the form of teacups and saucers.
They caught my attention and when making inquires, she told me that I had already bought a couple some time ago ! eh ! me? metal ring teacups ? metal pincushion bases, er?
She was right, a quick search at home produced the forgotten treasures and so I spent the morning sewing and gluing the diminutive pincushions.
With gold thread I embroidered a chain stitch pattern, added a couple of sequins and beads to decorate.
and while glue still in hand, made a few posh pins.
I´d like to thank everyone who has visited my blog this year and taken the time to leave thoughtful comments which I really enjoy reading and are very much appreciated. See you next year.

You always make the most beautiful things .

That's one very good shop owner, to know you'd already bought some of these! If you'd forgotten them, it wasn't just last week...ReplyDelete
I haven't seen these before, you did a super job on them, how lovely.ReplyDelete
Your teacup ring pincushions are adorable! I love the "posh pins" you made for them too, so pretty :) Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Hi Sheryl. I love seeing the lovely items you stitch. I'll continue to read your blog and hopefully get to make something you do.ReplyDelete
o my, it's a "smalls" SAL not a "teeny-tiny" SAL ahaha! These are the daintiest little things. How great that the shop owner knew you had already purchased some. Your little posh pins are a lovely addition too, full of sparkle.ReplyDelete
Carefully averted eyes in a craft store is a talent all on its own. ;)
On so cute Sheryl! Happy 2019. xxReplyDelete
Tee hee! I’m just like that too! Even the carefully averted eyes!ReplyDelete
You obviously spend a lot of time in that shop.
Glad you found your teeny tiny pincushion bases. You made a wonderful job of them and the gorgeous pins too!
Looking forward to seeing what else you rediscover and stitch in 2019!
Those are very interesting! I love them.ReplyDelete
Happy New Years!
I think that is SO funny that the shop owner informed you that you had already bought some, Sheryl! They are just so sweet and I'm glad I'm not the only one who forgets what she's purchased from time to time :)ReplyDelete
Wishing you every happiness in this new year ♥
What a nice thing to find out you already had some. You finished them beautifully so hopefully you won't forget you have them now!ReplyDelete
What beautiful treasures you have created Sheryl! I love them! Wishing you a very Happy New Year and looking forward to seeing what you stitch in 2019! Best wishes, Christine xxReplyDelete
These are amazing! And so intricate. Yay to the shopowner remembering you owned them xReplyDelete
Such beautiful teeny tiny teacup pincushions. I cannot imagine embroidering something so small. How funny that you had forgotten that you had some hidden away at home. It is the kinda thing I would do. =)ReplyDelete
So dainty! Funny, but I am also guilty of purchasing crafty items and then forgetting about them. It makes a nice surprise when you find them :)ReplyDelete
Happy new Year 2019. Thanks for joining in at simply neutrals.
These are adorable! And the pins are so lovely tooReplyDelete
Hello dear Sheryl, these are so cute!! And what a sweet woman to remind you your earlier purchase. I love how your did the embroidery on top and the cute little pins you created too. Big hugs and love xxReplyDelete
These are adorable! Also, that's a great needlework store, if the sales lady remembers your purchases better than you do.ReplyDelete
Amazing little creation Sheryl! I spotted you on Wen's Simply Neutrals Tuesday~ They are elegant and beautifully stitched! Nice accessory pins too! Hugs, karen oReplyDelete
They are beautiful! Love the pins too!ReplyDelete
I think that's so funny that you'd forgotten you'd bought the pincushion rings already... and I'm amazed that you were able to find them at home! But I'm so glad you did, as the resulting pincushions are completely exquisite. Beautiful tiny work.ReplyDelete
It's a beautiful job.ReplyDelete
I am enthusiastic about this fine work.
One recognizes your love and enthusiasm to this hobby
