An endearing sewing pincushion made of linen homespun fabric.  The pincushion is embroidered in red embroidery floss, with a  monogram of K. F. ( I believe) and the date 1891.  It seems this Victorian cushion may be a school girl sampler, as there are a several rows of different stitches, a pair of linen covered buttons plus the embroidery. 

An inspirational piece, if you will.  Stuffed with sawdust, the cushion is firm and hard.

Size is 4-1/2" x 5" .

As you note:  staining to the fabric.  Otherwise no damage.
