Pins and Shuttles

This month at guild meeting we had a program on pin cubes. Some were stitched, some not, some were old, and some were new. As part of the monthly program we had the opportunity to make a paper pin cube. 
Some stitched pin cubes.

A paper pin cube and 2 pin towers.

An antique pin cube

The two large pin cubes are new but have been given an
antique finish. 
My paper pin cube.
Now that my paper pin cube is done, I am working on a stitched pin cube. I am working on one that appeared online as an SAL in 2009. I decided to stitch something on each side, five of the six are complete.

On that tatting front. I made 2 starts on the Spring 2015 doily by Renulek. The first I used to make a cupcake pin cushion for a friend and the second a for the doily. I started late, got to the first part of round 2 then stopped to make some Easter eggs. I have one egg complete and I'm working on the second. Should have that done soon. Easter is almost here.

  2. Hi Gwen
    I've found your blog today via Jo's Halloween blog hop, and I was very interested to see these pin cubes. I haven't seen anything like them before. Your tatting is lovely. I tried tatting at my handicraft group but haven't managed to get into it yet... there's still time.

    Nice to have met you.
