Candy Apple Striped Wool For Pincushions

I'm assembling kits for a
Civil War Pincushion class I will be teaching
later this month.



Candy Apple Striped Wool For PIncushions.

I'm loving the Candy Apple striped Wool.
The small squares will be the Pennies
that top the pincushion and we will also make
two Penny Pins.

  1. All so pretty. I love Civil War era designs, incl. this style of pin cushion and the wools. Some people call this design the Amish Star.

  4. I wish I could go to your class. Your wool looks so amazing. It would be so much fun.
    I think it would get me over my slump, though I did hook a tiny bit today. :) Have a wonderful week.
