Ugly Pincushion

It was hard to pick an "ugly" pincushion, because really I like them all and they all have a little fond memory of some kind for me.  But this one got the honor of being the ugly duckling.  My friend Nancy gave me this pincushion.  She also gave me my little chair pincushion that is made out of a tin can.  So you can see the style of pincushion she likes, even though she doesn't really sew much and doesn't have a pincushion collection of her own.

The reason I don't like this one as much is because it is so small, and I don't really have a spot to put it where it would be useful.  So it is being useful today, as my ugly pincushion!


And I think this is my last post for the Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade hosted by Ida at My Sister Made Me Do It.  Go and check out the other entries - they are all really fun!

  2. I guess beauty or ugliness is all in the eye of the beholder because I think your ugly pincushion is actually quite attractive and interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I think this one is really cute, but I can understand that it can't always be easy to find somewhere to attach it. Thanks for inviting us to visit!

  5. I think it could be beautiful if the cushion bit was something a little more attractive. xx

  7. Well, I have much smaller pincushions and uglier ones too. That one, at least would not get knocked off the table when you jump up to answer the phone.

  8. That would be a perfect ironing board pincushion. The bird could be used to iron points too. It would be great!
