  Once upon a time lived a crafty maven.  She shared an apartment with her beau.  This lovely young man put up with all the clutter craftiness brought, with very little complaint.  Until one day tragedy struck!  A pin cushion had fallen off the table and onto the floor. ~~ Now this pin cushion was poorly designed, as it was terribly thin, and both sides were mere cloth.~~  The Mavens beau walked past the table and stepped on the pincushion!  He fell to the ground, crying out in agony!  The Maven rushed to his side and tried to remove the mass of pins from his foot.  But alas, she failed.  With a second attempt the pins came free, though the young man was still terribly upset.  The young man did come to forgive the Maven.  And they lived happily ever after.


Now thats a true story.  And it lead to the crafting of this:
Note the hairy toes, and foot-


Side view, complete with pins


Front view


and how it is to be used, pins go in the bottom!



enjoy.  I hope it brings you as many chuckles as it did me!

I have to admit I was SUPER grossed out by the thumbnail of the pic o the pincushion, but obviously intrigued enough to look! Its so cutely awesome, and I feel for your man! his poor foot.

This reminds me of my father.
If there was a pin anywhere in the room, it would end up in my father's foot.
Nobody elses, and it didn't matter how many other people had walked in the same spot before him.

I like it - maybe my dad needs this  Wink

Hahah! Oh man, I know exactly how your poor fella feels. I have such awful luck with pins. I have stepped on my pincushion before too.  Roll Eyes

I love the new pincushion though, and the back-story is cute! In the thumbnail on the main page, I thought it was of some drawing of a rotted foot, or something equally awful.

I'll have to tell my Husband he's not the only one who steps on pins!  Thank you!

Thank you! Its mildly a likeness, its a bit more 'hairy' then the real thing,  but there is hair on his foot none the less LOL  And yes, that is where the pins hit his foot!

Thank you!  I'm glad the thumbnail was intriguing!   And, your poor foot.  My husband was limping for a few days after that happened.  apparently it was no fun.

 Grin ..........That's crazy funny!  Reminds me of the time my ex had just finished building a deck...........and was walking barefoot on it bragging at what a good job he done sanding...............yup...........you guessed it...........the mother of all splinters ended up embedded in his big toe.............and I was laughing so hard he got pissed and said verbatim:
"You're really enjoying this aren't you?!"

ROTFL...........and I was too.......... Wink ...........you'd a thought he cut his whole foot off with the whining he was doing.............. Grin

Great job on the cushion bella...........I love it!  And who knows..........if he gets on your nerves maybe you can use it like a voodoo doll......... Cheesy............I can see him cringing everytime you stick a pin in it............LOL
