I finished my pincushion in the nick of time! Acutally it was done on Sunday night and I just procrastinated taking the photo. I ran into a snag -- thank you again Martha Stewart. I used her online pattern and she says that you can get emery powder to go inside the pincushion at a hardware store. Well, let me tell you -- I searched for the stuff! I even had a run in with a sexist "helpful hardware man" at the local Ace who wanted to know if I was looking for it for my husbands "power tool" -- sheesh! So my strawberry is filled with some sort of polyester fiberfill and that's just fine with me.
I've been working hard for a good portion of the day getting the gallery up -- Wow! There were more participants than I thought there would be! How cool is that? I'll put up the gallery and reveal June's theme tomorrow over at the Pincushion Challenge website, so I hope you'll all stop by and have a look!
*** Update ***
I'm really not looking for compliments on my pincushion -- honest! You can't tell from the photo, but the green felt on the top is terribly off center. I just photographed it from it's "good" side. It's my first attempt and I'm happy enough with how it turned out though. And hey, tomorrow another challenge starts so I have another chance, right?
