Pin cushions are so important. They are your most trusted company in every creative journey. I wonder how I have survived the past few years without one.
My old companion was a patchwork made by my aunt, with lots of shiny pins and needles. But somehow I lost it perhaps when my parents moved, and I have been searching for it since then. OK, it was time to give up on finding it. Time to move on. I also lost a bag of my favorite colored pencils and can’t find it anywhere either.
But I couldn’t just buy something. Last one was hand made, and it had set the expectation high. It has to be something special.
I dug up a yarn that I had spun a while ago. It is 3 ply, I wanted to create a yarn that all the colors are mixed and no spooling occurs. It is so pretty, Missoni like, if I may say so myself.
After crocheting 2 circles, I put them together with crochetted edge in fuchsia-colored yarn.
Stuffing the circles with scrap pieces of yarn…
