A Little Old Copper Piece ...

 Hello my dear friends,

I am so happy to finally share something new I recently made.

My craft room has boxes, baskets and tins filled with all sort of neat bits and piece and the piece I am sharing with you today I one of the neater ones. I think it used to be possibly an ashtray or something like that. I saw something different of course and that is what I turned it into. 

What is "that"? ... a new pincushion (of course what else!)

Some of my favorite drop cloth, old tattered lace, seam binding and some old buttons were all together just perfect for it and I added something unusual to it too. I added some magnets. Yes, I did say magnets. I glued them to the underside of the copper top, inside the copper piece, so there is a little more space for needles and pins and the best thing, they won't fall off.

I am very happy how the piece has turned out, exactly the way I wanted it too! With everything going on here right now being creative is just so good. I am already thinking about the next pincushion I am going to create. 

It is so nice that you visited me today and I hope you do come back some time again.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

Stay safe and stay healthy.
