"Home Sweet Home Pincushion"...Making Another Appearance

This is the newest issue of Piecework Magazine (March/April 2015).  I found it yesterday at my local Hastings, as I looked for a selection of magazines to take home.  It was a very nice surprise to find my pincushion, HOME SWEET HOME, shown within it's covers once again.

The article featuring pincushions highlights the newest pincushion contest at the magazine and shows the pincushions featured in their 2008 Pincushion Contest.  Mine was one of those.  

Well,  how nice to see it there!  Here is the real thing, placed on the page of the new magazine and you can see it right there to the left, as it was in 2008.  Cool.  (By the way, this pincushion is four inches square.)


 See....what fun and how unexpected!


This is page 12,  telling about the new contest and highlighting the 'old' entries too.

A close-up.

If you make pincushions, you might want to make one and enter it in the magazine's contest...you never know, you might see yours in the magazine...maybe even twice, as I have.  It's always nice to see something you have made in a publication...especially one like Piecework!

Hope you are all doing well...see you soon with another tutorial this month!

Until next time,

Lovely pincushion! I subscribed to piecework Mag for years but it got too focused on knitting. Might have to get this issue.
