>GGH pincushions


silk and velvet pincusion

Here are the two Great-grandma had. I really like the black one, silk and velvet. If I had only seen the other, I would have never known they were to be sewn together. I did know that they where pincushions, though, because they have sand or some such in them ( I could feel the weight and texture — I didn’t open any of them to see what it actually was). So I thought they were emerys at first, not the pieces of one pincushion. By the way, all the pieces are there to make a second one. I saw the basket piece before I saw the finished piece, so that was a great help in figuring it out.
