Vintage Spool Pin Cushion

 Today was another fun day
working at 
Pacific International Quilt Festival
The crowds have been so large
we haven't had time to venture far
from our booth.
Across the aisle
I saw this darling pincushion
designed by
I've seen vintage dish plates glued to the top 
of glass candlesticks,
but this is the first I've noticed 
this type of use for a canning jar.
Wonderful way to display old threads
and to create a unique pincushion.

is that jar glued onto the top of a candlestick? with the ribbon there I couldn't tell. I had seen some pincushions out of jars on pinterest and some are so cute - numerous sizes using little tiny jam jars to half pint jars up to pints with things stored in them The one you show is rather romantic looking isn't it.
