A New Treasure To Work With ..

Hello my dear friends,

I just wanted to share my newest found treasure with all you lovelies today.
It is a tarnished candle holder that is just the perfect piece for me to work with. Ever since I had created my 'Golden Afternoon' triple pincushion I had been on the lookout for another neat multiple candle holder and who knew how hard it would be to find a nice looking one?! But I was very fortunate to see this one yesterday.

It is a lovely tarnished piece and it holds three blossoms.
I have just realized that  I actually have worked with a single one of these before  ...

... and I created this piece with it.

My mind is now working overtime to come up with the right way on how to turn this neat candle holder into a very special pincushion. I am thinking it could go a few ways ... white linen and lace, seam binding, some sparkle maybe or gray velvet, seam binding and a little sparkle or drop cloth? Hm ... I am not quite sure just yet but it will come to me eventually but the one thing I do know ... I am already excited to work on it! So so stop by sometime again and see what I have been up too, here at Todolwen.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Wow, I love this pincushion piece! Clever use of candle holder!
