You might have thought I've forgotten about my NEO [never enough orange] series. Nope. Not a chance. I'm getting things finished and organized, but much more slowly than I'd like. I've got a butternut squash around my midsection and 5 others who roam freely, and who create chaos even more freely. But, I am so excited to share with you today the most recent addition:Oh, I knew the second my eyes beheld this beauty that she belonged in my sewing studio. I had a perfectly functioning pincushion before, but this one, oh she just radiates, don't you think? I found her at the Etsy shop: Made in Lowell, by Liz Smith.
She does wonders with wool and yarn in general, but she also plays with polymer clay and paper. Her items are beautifully crafted, simple, but certainly not boring. Look how my cupcake arrived:
Doesn't it look real?!
And if you add your color coordinated personalized pins:
You can lick off your frosting,
and use it for your needles instead of pins, which is what I'll be using mine for. I am too lazy to put them back in their little packages, so they go here for easy access when doing hand stitching.And with projects in full swing, I have little hands who are starting to use needles and they know where they can find them and [sometimes, hopefully] put them back.
I love when function and form have a perfectly balanced, harmonious relationship.
Liz is giving a no big dill reader one of these adorable pincushion rings!
