Pincushions - Works Of Art You Can Stick Pins In!

By now, many of you will know that I recently purchased a wonderful handmade, felt pincushion from a fellow Etsy seller That Pincushion Place.  I have been waiting with bated breath for my parcel to arrive from the UK and today it did!  I was greeted by a lovely box on the doorstep just waiting for me to open it up and examine it's contents.  So scissors at the ready I held my breath and carefully opened the box.

I was not dissappointed!

There it was in all of it's 8" glory.  My pincushion.  Yay!!  I am completely gobsmacked by the amount of time and work that has obviously gone into creating this little masterpiece.  It got me thinking though.  What other pincushions are out there defined purely by utalitarian ideals.  What other little works of art are lurking in the functional sections of all craft/auction sites under 'sewing paraphenalia'?

So I went on a search and this is what I found - true pieces of art!!
