I have embroidered and collected pincushions for many years and mostly because I met an embroiderer 16 years ago and she taught me so well. We have remained friends over the years and even worked together passing on our creative skills to many creative people in this area. Finally my friend Fiona has begun blogging today on her blog Peaceful Threads, so welcome her to the blogging world and enjoy viewing her vast collection of embroidery from the past and present, she's one talented stitcher. Interestingly we seem to have many similar things in our collections and many of mine were made by Fiona. Check them out by clicking for a closeup.
