It happened. Late at night of course while I was picking up and finishing the last of the evening projects. You know how it is. You’re tired and in a hurry and suddenly.. oops! I was cleaning off the top of the sewing table and pushed on a pile of stuff so I could organize my other piles when it happened. I heard a loud plop and my magnetic pin cushion slid off the back of the sewing table and crashed on the floor. The floor is tile and you can imagine what happened. My lovely magnetic pin cushion lay in pieces and there were pins splattered all over the floor. Not in a convenient place to pick things up either. So I got down on my hands and knees, scooted under the machine and gathered up all my lovely pins and the remaining pieces of this pin cushion. Although this is not my favorite color pin cushion it is a favorite because of the function. If you’ve never used a magnetic pin cushion put it on your next birthday/Christmas any occasion gift list. Once you’ve used one you will not want to be without. I do use several pin cushions including a wrist pincushion, a small pin cushion just for sewing needles, one for machine needles that’s marked with sizes and then my magnetic pin cushion. This is so handy when you’re pinning taking pins out of things and you can just lay them down. They all stay in one place. When you pick them up they are easy to grab as well. I’ve relocated the pins for a time and have the glue out to see if I can make repairs. If not, then it will go on my Christmas list. Next time I want a red one please. Or even a blue one or a purple one or I guess any one would do.
