pincushions, ohio stars and bible blocks

At the pincushion on parade link up a few weeks ago I won a giveaway, one was $10 to emblibrary.com and I added a few things, one of them were these heart stuffies ornaments.

Of course I couldn’t just make ONE, but tried 2 in felt

I also made a bigger version in cotton and then stitched it right sides together and turned into out for a pincushion!

I also got some pincushions from Turid in Norway, well they are technically just stuffies and she sent me two for my youngest girls, but I think I might just keep them on the shelf… but not poke them with pins Winking smile

While we got bins out, I was looking at the women of the bible quilt blocks and now I’ve printed all the blocks that needs templates or Foundation pieces, so I’ve been on a roll too on these!

This is Jehosheba (Grandmother’s own)
