I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

The One Little Pincushion Swap sparked an idea for a pincushion with a girl flying a kite. The trouble was I couldn't work out the kite string part and I got excellent advice from texscrapper to use floral wire. Probably should have ironed the sky first!

This is spectacular!! It's more than a pincushion, it's a work of art!! In fact, I don't think I'd have the heart to poke her with a pin. You really captured so much movement between the kite, the grass, her hair and the dress. Splendid!!

I am so glad you worked out the kite detail...I thought the girl was wonderful on her own when you previewed her, but the addition of the kite is the best!  I love that you even have the grass blowing!

Thanks, everyone! The girl is basically a tiny Waldorf style doll, complete with a shaped head, knit fabric body, and wool wrapped wire armature to make her poseable. Her skirt is sewn to the inside of an arm and also gathered and sewn to itself. It helped to have a stiff fabric! Originally, the kite had a tail but it was too heavy and had to be removed.
