Oooh, lovely things…

I don’t know about anyone else, but I just love the right tool for the right job. So having treated myself to a set of new ‘Tulip’ needles, I simply had to have a lovely pincushion to park them in – even though I have several ‘handmade by me’ or ‘gifted’ pincushions already! I had been coveting the work of the Fish Museum and Circus for some time and decided to treat myself. The desire to own an animal pincushion is only intensified by the fact that they sell so quickly. First you need to sign up to a mailing list which then notifies you of the once a month, time of release for each set of pincushion. There are usually about 8-10 pincushions for sale – but these sell out within the first 5 minutes! It took me 4 attempts to buy one that I really liked! But then last week……..

And isn’t he just so cute……

Meanwhile in the garden – spring is in full swing! The slipper orchids, trilliums and cow parsley are all in flower….

Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....

    That is just so cute! I’ve just started to use my Tulip needles too, but don’t quite know what the long term storage of them is going to be!

    I’ve never seen a pin cushion quite like that before – no wonder you wanted one!
