Some more tea cup pincushions.

I bought three more tea cups last week at Savers, for 50c each. So many people have commented favourably on my first teacup pincushion, I decided to make a few more and give them away as "RAK"s. I started off by giving the first one to my friend LeeAnn, who came to visit us today with her hubby Rob, who has been very ill in the past year but thankfully is now okay. She brought a belated birthday gift for me, with lots of fabrics and nice things, and went home with a teacup pincushion and a dozen fresh eggs!

Your pincushions are dainty and sweet as well as practical. Very nice.

Nice to meet you ! Verviers is not far from Brussels, anyway nothing is far in Belgium. You drive 250 km from Brussels in all directions and you are in another country, lol !
Never heard of pincushions in tea cups, nice idea. I am not at all in sewing, stitching or knitting etc.

Thanks for stopping by my blog Gina! I've never thought of pin cushions in a tea cup! But why not?

Those are so cool. Nice to have source for those cups that don't cost much.

They are very sweet, Gina!
The one I bought a few years ago has the saucer glued on too; great for holding embroider scissors or the bobbins and buttons for your latest project.
