I made this pincushion for the one tiny thing swap.  My partner said that she loved fall, so I attempted to capture the end of the season (the trees outside my window looked just like this as I worked on it).  The inspiration for the forest design came from one of Aimee Ray's (Merwing) amazing pieces at dreamfollow.com.

This is lovely. I like that there are just a few leaves left, and such a good choice in fabric.

I love it, so cute. Autumnal influence is the best. Great idea too.

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Its simplicity is so perfect. Just a few elements make such a wonderful whole.
