Pincushion

You know how you see an idea and want to do it straightaway...and then don't?  Because you can't?  I first had to find a suitable frame (the price is still on it - a whole $1 at a thrift store).  Then I cadged some stuffing from a friend (thanks Margaret) because in a fit of tidy-up-itis I threw mine out (what IS it with stuffing - it just keeps expanding...like the universe...)  Then I had to buckle down and do some problem solving, because all I had was a picture and I had to figure out how to make it work (not that it's hard, mind you, just kind of fiddly).
Anywho, here she is - I'm pretty happy.  The frame was originally a pewter grey, so I did a white wash with acrylic paint.
The best part? It works!!! Yay!!
