My current obsession is with pincushions. I grew interested in them last week Saturday, when my mom and I went to a rummage sale at the church we went to while I was growing up. While rummaging through boxes of glass figurines and such, I found a small blue handmade pincushion. It was made from the metal rims of two canning jars, and my mom told me that she used to make them in school. The one I found was simply a pincushion, but apparently you could also put a tape measure in the middle for extra utility. I bought it for a whopping 10 cents, but am unable to show you a picture yet as I've lent out my camera.
So here, instead, are photos of some beautiful pincushions that others have made:
(The pincushion above is sort of an ode to a Texas Donut...)
