Vintage Pincushion and Wool

My grandmother gave me a vintage “pincushion” from the late 1800s. Many scrap pieces of fabric were sewn together to create this little pillow.

It has different bits of embroidery throughout the piece. It’s interesting to look at and I appreciate the amount of craftsmanship that it took to create this.

And a cousin gave me some wool fabric from she had received from our grandmother. She had had the wool for years, but eventually came to the conclusion that she wasn’t ever going to get around to using it, so she gifted them to me. There are four different fabrics (with different yardage), and all are cute plaid patterns. I’m not sure what I’ll do with any of them yet, but it’s all very nice fabric.
