This stunning wool pincushion mounted on a 4" vintage silk spool would make a fabulous gift for someone special, be it your Mum, daughter, sister, aunt or indeed....YOURSELF. The spool itself is in excellent condition with beautiful patina.

I have embellished the top of the pincushion with a ring of tiny embroidered roses using 3 shades of pink DMC threads. Masses of pretty delicate leaves, bullions and buds adorn the ring. The pretty crystal and pearl topped pins lend a real vintage look to this piece.

I have selected thread colours that coordinate beautifully with the hand dyed avocado green wool so that it has become quite unique and certainly could become a family hierloom. Finishing touches include some vintage French cotton lace, twisted silk cording, and my signature bee.

This is the same style which I use for my own needlework so that I NEVER lose a needle within the padding. The padded area of the pincushion itself is only about 1/2" deep and works really well for my quilting needles which are so very short and fine it is easy to stick them into a pincushion never to be seen again.

Height: approx 4 1/2" high
Diameter of the top of the pincushion is approx 2 1/2"

Apologies for the high cost of shipping from Australia, but I only ask what Australia Post charges. I carry all costs of the box, padded bags, wrapping and bubble wrap etc. Most of my items are light weight and small so I can generally fit 3 or more items in one box. As always with shipping , any over charges greater than $1 will be credited to your Paypal account.
