you all know how much I love making pincushions and here is the latest one I have created. It is made from an old salt or pepper shaker that I picked up in a thrift store some time ago and then it just sat on my shelf waiting until the day before yesterday. I am trying to keep to Dawn's advise - create something every day! I am trying to do so it doesn't matter how small the something is.
What used to be a tarnished shaker is now a precious and lovely pincushion.
Pearls and crochet pansies must be one of my favourite ways to embellish something old and tarnished.
( Sounds familiar?! I am sure I have said this before!)
I am always on the hunt for more of these.
I like that you can take off the lid, and inside there is the actual pincushion hiding away waiting to be found.
I love that I was able to decorate the inside and outside to match one another.
I think so far this must be one of my favourite pincushions that I have created.
And now back to the 'drawing board' hopefully with more new ideas for new creations that I can share with you!!!
Have a peaceful and creative day,
