Pin Cushion Fun

I've just been doing some research on pin cushion designs. They are so much fun to make and it's impossible to stop at making just one. I totally understand why people collect them.

Look at these wonderful creations I found on Flickr.

Yes me too the little House on the Hill. Years ago there was an English film about children, something had happened to them and they were going to Grandmas house. Do you know the film ??
