Pincushion and kid with a sprained ankle
I finally got around finishing this pincushion I had started. The top and the bottom are a light green from a wool sweater I fulled. The belly part is of a cashmere sweater so it's oh so soft. I used mercerized cotton and linen thread for the embroidery. The dragonfly button is brass with an antique gold finish. I used rice, dried lavender and batting to stuff it so every time you poke it with a pin or needle it will smell like the South of France!
Now about the sprained ankle part ... kid went to scout day camp today and managed to hurt herself on day one! She's suppose to go all week to help out but it looks like tomorrow will be out of the question for sure ... hopefully not the rest of the week too ... she was really looking forward to doing this. Oh well.
