Tatted Pincushions



Tell me what you think about these...I've been trying to think of a way to incorporate my mom's tatting into a pincushion. She tatted a couple of motifs for me; I tacked them down to some bright colored wool using invisible thread and then made a pincushion using an old zinc lid for the base. As luck would have it, I just happened to have some coordinating trim in bright colors. So, what do you think???

Parfait! Ooooopps, I meant perfect!
They are both adorable, if she makes alot more, I'd be happy to pay for 2 motifs done. One in the same bright colors and perhaps another one done in a bright lime green.
