Anyone who knows me well, knows I love a bargain and can’t resist a snoop around a charity/junk shop. I have been on the look out for a china tea cup to make into a pin cushion – I know its quirky, but hey! Anyway, guess what I found this morning, a Royal Albert Bone China teacup dated 1934 …. its perfect.
It caught my eye as the decoration on the teacup looked like cross-stitch and you know what, I was right as the design is printed on the bottom – Petit Point China? It was an absolute bargain and not only that, there were two of them!
Now I just have to find the time to make them into pin cushions and ditch the ugly plastic and foam one that I am currently using.
