I feel a pincushion coming on!!!

I've only made one pincushion in two years but am finding myself setting aside a brooch here, a piece of lace there, or some trim because it would go well on a pincushion. I only buy a certain kind of candlesticks with weighted bases and I still pick them up when I find them...sooo that probably means I'm about ready..

For me making things to sell takes all the fun out of whatever it is.. I made and sold lots of pincushions but got to a point I was always conscious of time vs. money. They sold well at shows but I hated people picking them up and handling them. I wasn't happy with how I photographed them for online. And after a while it was like I made them to a formula and they were less creative and more repetative so I just quit..

I keep lining up winter projects and pincushions will probably be on the list... but I will not allow myself to think about the money vs. time thing....... I love them lavish and encrusted with layers and layers of trims, jewels, beads etc.

Yes, I feel a pincushion coming on.....

You can't stick a pin in that, can you? It is a beauty on itself!
