Pinned It and Did It!

I'm having great fun with pincushions right now. This is the smallest one I've worked on.  It's very similar to the inspiration piece.  I have several others in the works.  Some are neutral colors and others a bit brighter.  I love making these ~ I love eating walnuts ~ I don't love trying to get the walnuts out of the shells without cracking them.  Already empty shells would be very nice!

This is post #998!  Two more posts to go!

Happy November!  Yikes!

That is SO sweet - I love it! I'm guessing we don't realize how many shells we destroy until we are trying to get perfect halves - argh!

The pincushion turned out so pretty, Marie! I think it would make a lovely tree ornament too.
I'm catching up on your last posts. Penelope is such a sweetie and looks so cute in her outfit.
Your father-in-law has very kind eyes and I always enjoy your posts about him. I'm sure he still loves talking to you despite your different believes.
Have a great week :-)!

Marie, I'm trying so hard to understand Pinterest! I leared about it from you, got my invitation, and now...*sigh* I don't know how to work it, don't even know how to drag the "pin it" icon to my toolbar because....it's covered by the dropdown menu in Firefox where I need to reach it! LOL!

Not a good way to begin a Monday!

Hugs, Diane
