Wooden Spool / Cotton Reel Pincushions

I've been working on these for a little while.  I think I've had the spools for over a year now and I've finally got around to making them.
The centre of each spool has a piece of linen fabric decorated with applique, embroidery and wording. I've also had a stamp made for the base.
Now thinking they could be personalised with names. xxx
