Paying it Forward with Pinnies

With a little help from my Aurifil threads I completed three pincushions- paying it forward for Rachel, Leila and Suzanne.  They each gave me an idea of what they wanted so hopefully these are just right.  I like them all, and they make a nice little grouping.
This is Rachel's.   The block is Mother's Dream, I do like traditional x and + blocks.  The fabrics are all vintage from my new pile except the Kei Kerchief girl in the middle- oh for more of this fabric!
Leila liked blue and these are all vintage fabrics, aprons etc

Both of these have a wool fabric back and a little hand stamped tag.
Suzanne wanted something like the clutch I made for Kaelin.  This is double sided with a sewing theme on the front...
and a house theme for the back.  Aurifil threads again for the hand stitch details- wool 12 weight and cotton 12 weight.  They are lovely threads for hand stitching and a sashiko needle makes for quicker sewing.  Suzanne just won a pack of thread in my giveaway!  She does a lot of hand stitch detail so I know they are going to a good home.
Aurifil threads again for the hand stitch details- wool 12 weight and cotton 12 weight.  They are lovely threads for hand stitching.  These little cushions are en route to their new owners.
