This is a pincushion I made for Isabelle for Christmas. Some of you might remember the paperclay hat that I was trying to get my pixie to wear. Well I made a base out of this hat for the pincushion, which my erst while pixie discarded .
Unfortunately I didn't take pictures of other gifts that I sent out.
Just before leaving for India Helen's flatina arrived on her way home from Israel. She insisted that she wanted to come to India with me, so I took her along. Helen, I hope you are not getting too impatient to have her with you. Hopefully she will be winging her way to you soon. She enjoyed herself immensely and has lots of tales to tell you LOL! Here are a few pictures of this lovely lady who won many hearts.

Making herself at home with the family and enjoying the food!

Sunning herself under the Indian skies. The bees mistook her for a flower and wouldn't leave her alone tee hee...


  1. Dearest Shashi, I love the dressform so much, and shall never dare to put pins into it! It has a place of honour on our mantlepiece. I would love to try and make one, too. It's amazing what an exquisite piece you created by using bits and pieces of lace etc and by recycling things too!

    Many hugs to you!

  2. That is one of the prettiest pincushions I've ever seen! No wonder Isabelle said she'd never stick it with pins!

  3. Hi Shashi,
    Good to see you back. Happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful time with family and friends in India.


  4. Welcome home, Shashi! It's so good to have you back with us- you've been missed. Love your pin cushion from Isabelle, and the doll from Helen is wonderful.

  6. Oh my, this pincushion is so gorgeous!!!
