A new pincushion theme starting today

I have decided that these 5 Halloween pincushions look good under my Halloween tree. Here they are all together. I won't be making any more of these for now as I am switching my theme to.....

.....autumn pincushions. The first of this series is a red apple. This came out more red on the photo that it really is.

I am going to do another give~away. I have a list of 7 pincushions I will be making with the fall theme. You know what the first is ~ an apple. The first person to name the complete list will win a pincushion. If many can name them, I will hold a drawing. Good luck to everyone!

I'm back again,
Heidi I was looking at your lovely photo again with all the beautiful brightly coloured pincushions together when I spotted such a pretty little teddy in the background wearing a gorgeous Halloween jumper. Did you knit this for him :>)
I love it. Such pretty boxes too. They give the picture a vintage tinge
Hugs, Angela

I love your halloween themed pin cushions! I would love to see them on your little tree.

Are you going to do a halloween or a pumpkin themed pinkeep?

Thanks for the support about my inlaws. Its actually worse than I even say... we are foridden to enter their home! My mom keeps asking why on earth I let his mom come over when Duanes dad won't allow us enter their home. Ugh. I have even been so kind as to let her take the babies home with her because he wants to see THEM, just not US. However, spending another holiday dinner alone while everyone else has dinner there is lonely to even think about. We spent last Easter in a cracker barrel since we weren't invited to his mom and dads home for the family dinner...

WOW Heidi I am just amazed on these cute pin cushions you make! I love Halloween and these you made are so adorable!

Just found your blog, very nice. The pincushions are adorable! You should publish some patterns for us less talented soles. They look like great fun.
