When do you decide that you have too many pincushions? I like to keep my different sized pins in different pincushions. I find that it makes it easier to use them if they are all on the same cushion. My Santa swap partner made the one with the red and green pins for Christmas and it is wonderful. Though it is hard to see from the picture, she pieced my favorite nine patch design on it. She used crushed shells in it and it has a nice weight to it.
