This wheat pin cushion was stitched in 1997 and has a flannel backing.
The sampler looking pin cushion is stitched over one and is inside a faux shaker box. It gets a lot of use and is looking a little worse for the wear.
This strawberry pin ball is done with rice stitches. Inside the ball is wool yarn. It was a mini class I took in 1996 at Conner Prairie near Fishers Indiana. They used to have a summer needlework event at Conner Prairie with all different kinds of classes. The Indianapolis EGA chapter had a table with membership information the first year I went. I joined the guild soon after.
This bargello needlebook was another little class from Conner Prairie in 1997. I use this needle book all the time.
I know it is hard to believe I have so many toolies, but they are all so very useful. I have just a few more to show you. Please come back tomorrow.
