Who woulda guessed?

Lord knows why, since I only use my 200 year old red tomato that I've had forever (and is quite beat up), but I joined a new pincushion swap . I only made one other pincushion in my whole life before, (from a turtle pattern that didn't turn out so hunky-dorey), but I am having such fun making them now. Who would have guessed? Now I'm thinkin' that I just might have to go into business. LOL Heavenly days , the possibilities with these things are endless.......!!! I wonder which one my secret partner will like???

Scrappy Pincushion #2

Scrappy Pincushion #1

Or.....maybe I'm not done yet. (Probably not, knowing me.) Incidentally, if you'd like to buy one of these, or would like me to make you something special, just e-mail me and we can work out the details.

They are both lovely but I adore the flower! I am a flower fan. I can't believe that you use the standard old tomato! It has to go :)
