This pin cushion is made by my auntie (my father’s little sister), given to me the last time I went back home. She is the one who taught me how to do embroidery.
I could do embroidery very well when I was only 7 years. I used to go to her house during school holidays (it’s my grandparents house, actually and she still stayed there because she hasn’t married yet), and we spent hours together to do embroidery.
I normally did a bouquet of flowers on the corner of handkerchief. At that time, nobody bring tissue at school. We brought handkerchief. And I would proudly use mine, knowing that I did the embroidery myself. Too bad that I lost all my handkerchiefs.
