A few weeks back I noticed signs around my local area for a craft show to be held at the Tweed Heads Council Building on Fri 15th and Sat 16th July. The last time I went to this craft show was several years back and it was just wonderful and I spent a lot of money however I was quite disappointed this time and I was only there for about an hour at the max on Saturday morning. I did however manage to spend a little money, these are my purchases which I am very happy with I might add. I have some lovely patterns for ribbon embroidery and other embroidery I have wanted to use to make these type of pin cushions BUT I will not put pins in them, I want them for "show" only. I purchased two different types, I would have like larger sizes of the ones with the feet however they sold out of the larger sizes on Friday and the couple selling them come from Toowoomba. I took one of their business cards and the lovely gentleman who makes all the wooden craft items said he would make them to any measurement I wanted, uuummm...... I shall have to look into this further.



  1. How Fabulous. Can't wait to see what you stitch.

  2. You Know I went about 5 years ago to that craft show ......sorry that you didnt like it as much.....
    sometimes that is what happens ......I live at Broadbeach and work at Beenleigh I know what the traveling is like....

  3. Glad you got something you liked. I am looking forward to seeing what you create with them.

  4. Love the pincushion bases! Can't wait to see what you make with them. Were they expensive?? I think they would make very special presents!! I too am interested....



Oh gosh this heat we've been having on the East Coast has been terrible.  We put the aircon on in the bedroom at night as it's too ...
