Those pinkeeps I promised....

Sorry I didn't get a chance to share them with you yesterday. I couldn't get very good pictures- I played with a few displays and wasn't happy, so I decided to just take the darn picture just as they are! LOL.

I made them using a pattern from 1804 Primitives. They are all about 3 inches in diameter, all have been aged (some more than others) and the bottoms are a reproduction zinc canning jar lid. Actually the light blue ticking one (in the middle in the very front row) I used an old zinc Ball lid for that one- the material for the pincushion is actual ticking material- very thick- so it wouldn't fit in the other lids. Most of the pinkeeps have vintage buttons, though a few don't. They are $7.00 each, plus shipping. A few have already sold, but I just added the ones left on to my selling site. Well, I'm off to work on some more stuff. Gotta take advantage of the "extra" time I have now. (Knock on wood....) Ha!
