My First Pin Cushion :)

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  What Have You Got To Lose?
A friend recently asked me if I could come up with a way to display a collection of antique gold stickpins.  Of course I was up for the challenge!  I did some searching on Pinterest and saw a bunch of ideas - displaying them in pincushions that were placed in teacups or antique shoes.  They all looked pretty and, at the same time, I was drawn to creating something a bit more simple to keep the focus on the beauty of the pins.  I figured my first step was to learn how to make a pin cushion!  So, I watched a great instructional video on YouTube and gave my first pin cushion a try using simple muslin and embroidery floss.  So here it first pin cushion!  It is going to sit on my craft table and hold a few pins and needles...and remind me that it's worth giving something new a try...because after all, what have you got to lose?
Stop by tomorrow and I'll show you my completed stick pin display!
