Oh my glob, I'm DONE!!!!  I hope to get the the PO tomorrow, but I can't guarantee that Grin  If I don't make it in tomorrow, I will go on Tuesday, seeing as I will be staying as far away from the PO as possible on Monday!!!!

I had a dream I was a pincushion. It may be time to put the finishing touches on.

I'm starting to be able to see the shape now, and it's looking good! I'm either 1/3 done with the crocheted part or 1/2 done, depending on the route I take from here, and I've already picked out some embellishments! Still pondering the pins...

I took my project on the plane for a work trip earlier this week and managed to crochet about 1,5 rows... Fail... But at least they didn't steal my hook in the security checkpoints.

I've got the weekend off, so I expect to make even more progress. Today have been productive so far.

I am loving the way texscrapper's pincushion is turning out.  Hopefully the last step will go smoothly as the previous ones have (I am one of those... do one more thing and blow the whole   #*&^  thing up crafters).

Okay, I had to share my huge score with all of you.  I was out searching antique malls and flea markets for a very specific drop leaf table (which I also found!!!) and this chair jumped out at me from two aisles over! 

It's a teeny tiny chair pincushion!  That's a quarter beside it, it's just so small and in perfect condition.... and it was priced reasonably too!



How cute is that?

That makes me think of a pincushion my great grandmother owned. I thiiink my sister's got it now. Or it might be hidden somewhere in my craft room. Hidden in plain view! It's made from a can of beer I think. The lid is cut off, the sides sliced in 2-3 mm wide strips and the whole thing crafted into a rocking chair with the bottom as the seat with a padded pincushion for a seat cushion.

When I was younger I thought it looked like a toy and never realised it was meant to be a pincushion. (I think it was one of those "too nice to use" items so I never saw it with pins in.)


Really bad picture I snapped with my phone. Craftster insists on flipping it.
