Pincushion Overload

Is anyone else involved in Kate's pincushion swap having a minor freakout?? I've got to stop Googling pincushions!

I had decided what kind of pincushion I'm going to make for my secret swap partner, but now I'm having some doubts. I've made several teacup pincushions before and think they are gorgeous, but I've just got that nagging feeling of whether or not my partner will dig it as much as I do.

These are just a few of the images I've come across in my searches. I hope I can pull this thing off without anyone getting disappointed!

Well, I would be happy with anything in a tea cup really. I love tea cups. I'm going to make some tea cup candles for the school fete this year. If I can find an op shop that doesnt want to charge the earth for an old tea cup!

Yes, I don't think anyone would NOT like the teacup idea... I'm a bit boggled by the idea.. like how in the hell does it stay in there? I am not, of course, going to figure this out right now because I will be diverted from my own freakout and onto another!
