And what do you think this could be!!??

Hi all! :)
Just a quick post to say HELLOOO, I'm still here but a little pre-occupied.....

I am still in the midst of my massive clean out of inventory into my Ebay shop! So so busy with it all!!!

I have been very lax in the blogging department and I owe a lot of lovely people thanks for a few things but that will have to wait until I have a clearer head.

Thought you might enjoy seeing this lovely little object as a quick post. I have not ever, actually handled one until now but I have seen them many years ago in 'how to' books.

What do you think it is?

Its a pin cushion made from an open pine cone.

Would have taken a bit of patience to make.

The things one finds in Op Shops!!

Hope whatever you are up to makes you happy :)

Don't forget to check out all my goodies in my Ebay store. (The link is in the right hand bar) I mean it when I say I am listing like a maniac...and my typing is disastrously slow! :p

wow that is a wild pincushion! That would take a bunch of patience huh? I've never seen one like that. I like pincushions...I've been noticing them a lot lately!

Thanks for stopping by today & your thoughts!

Love the pincushion! I could have used that a minute ago, working on a Fantastic Mr. Fox ornament and kept sticking myself with pins! Oh the prototype. Oh the only one I will probably ever make as it has taken me three hours just to make his little vest. Nonetheless, I could use a pincushion and yours is cute!
I'll go ck out your etsy shop....Christmas is coming!
