Just happened to spot this from the car on my way back from Inversnaid last weekend.


If you happen to be driving in the opposite direction when I'm in this "one eye on the road, the other on the scenery" mode, just cut me some slack .. and keep your fingers firmly crossed!

Crazy Herringbone stitch and detached chain stitch for a pincushion ring.

On felt with a little bottlecap, you can find the tutorial in my blog "yapadkoi", the link is at my profile.

Feutrine, élastique et bouchon en plastique, les explications sont sur mon blog "yapadkoi" dont vous trouverez le lien en cliquant sur "profile".

I can absolutely see why this is called the 'PINCUSHION' PROTEA.

Die enige eg SUIKERBOSSIE (ZA).

Read all about this amazing plant, this is the BEST article I've EVER come across on any flower:HERE


Protea flowers normally remain closed, (with the style curved, and the stigma within the mass of tepals), until an insect, bird, or rodent disturbs the flower. At that point, the flower snaps open, the style straightens and the stigma is held some distance above the bloom.

Finished scrappy pincushion.


Squares are 1" and there is a tiny 1/4 inch linen border.

this is my contribution to the pincushion swap. It measures 2.5" x 5.00". Sorry there were no peek views but once I started it I had to continue until it was finished.. As you can see it goes on the front of your sewing machine. I have one and find it one of the most useful 'bits ' I have ever made. Hope you do to ,partner.

As you know, I don't normally do B&W .. but I thought I'd give it a go just to see what the reaction was. Any advice you B&W experts can give me will be much appreciated.


See here for the original colour version.

Pincushion proteas, to me, resemble varicoloured sea urchins or the burst of fireworks on New Year's eve (others we shot). They range in colour from pink to orange and gold. This South African plant has adapted well to the cool and dry higher elevations of Hawaii where one bush can produce over 1,000 flower heads in a season.

I had this little dog cut out sitting on my work table. It was taunting me. I had to make another pincushion.

Pincushion for my partner. Hope you like it!

FYI - this is a pretty big pincushion - about 6" across.

I made my first ever pincushion and gave it as a door prize at the first Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild meeting.


I used the pattern from Last-Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson.
