Oh, it turned out so perfectly pearish!  I think I may have to do a pattern down the line.  It's stuffed with wood shavings, to keep the pins sharp and so they won't sink in too easily.  The leaf is for holding needles.  In fact, I think I'm going to make a couple more pear pincushions tomorrow for a birthday giveaway at the end of the week -- maybe I'll host a clean joke contest to choose the winner -- Hmmm. 

And I made this tape measure to go with it -- too cute!

You came in from the darkness and held the door open wide
You stood there like a vision before my unbelieving eyes
I believe in what I see and also what I hear
But did the night play tricks on me or were you really there.

You should absolutely sell a pattern for that -- anyone who has vintage fabric in their stash would love it, including me!

I remember this on your site.  I think it's awesome.  I just signed up for a wist list just to list it.  I was curious where you get your pins from too.
