OK I'M GUILTY! I admit it! Guilty of posting tacky pictures, I've been ever so distressed by the tacky pictures of my pincushions. I really should have taken more time and staged them and maybe taken individual pictures to give them all a chance. I'm embarrassed! But I think I found a way to show show them off in a new setting. While waiting for the Lint Extractor (why is that title so funny to me?) I was catching up with my favorite blogs and clicking away and happened upon these! I wish I could find the blog that led me there because I had to laugh at the subject of the post. I would really like to give them credit and not rip them off, but here goes...
I'm gonna "Pimp My Pincushions"!!
I adore the pins in the link, but I wanted instant gratification. I couldn't wait for an order to arrive. I needed to find a way to reshoot my pincushions to fight off the "tacky picture image" that I left you with. I dug through all of my hidey places and drawers and button box for things I could use! I used flat head pins & super glue. I'm sure you could come up with some cuter ones.
These took all of an hour to make, check out how they "Pimp My Pincushions" Ahhh that is fun to say!

Just to be a little bit different with my comment here (like you expected anything ELSE from me?!), I'm thinking you need to make a pincushion that looks like an EYE. You know: "Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye." Love your whimsical pins though!
