Antique Pincushion & hat pins

My new pincushion was a mile high full of dust so I carefully removed all the pins and snipped the threads to remove the cover off the pillow. I then soaked it in Oxyclean for 2 days and restitched it up. Some of the cross stitches were torn so I restitched them as well. Turns out they used DMC 3750 on 30 count cream linen. One of my favorite colors.
 Here are the results.

I plan to buy a hat pin holder for all the beautiful hat pins that I have.
