Folksy love-in: Pin cushions with a difference

At a certain point in a woman’s life, the importance of a pin cushion becomes clear. For some it is aged forty plus, lovingly darning their husband’s socks; for others it is earlier, when they realise that sewing their socks themselves is not such a bad idea after all.

This can  either be seen as the beginning of the end, or a whole new horizon involving fun novelty accessories which only add to the charm of your home.

An afternoon browsing on for fun handmade pin cushions only proves this last point.
