lament and ye shall make? . .

After spending the weekend sitting on the couch working on my hexies and lamenting on my need for a pincushion – I’ve been using the boppy.  I stumbled upon this post by The Green Dragonfly

Sweet!  I have the tools. . .got tons of baby food jars, just cannot bring myself to throw those jars out!  Baby food jars and egg cartons!  It really is a sickness 😉

So I gathered my supplies and came up with this:

rice filled pincushion

One thing I did differently which may be brilliant, or brilliantly silly. . .I filled the pincushion, unlined, with rice.

What makes a woman fill an unlined crocheted ball with rice? . .you may ask.  I thought it was a good idea at the time.

Well, I guess time will tell. . .I will be monitoring the area for escaped rice kernels – night!

    Isn’t that sweet! I guess you could always pop little escapees back!

      To put ’em back, seems cruel, no? 😉

    I don’t see any rice poking through so it seems like a success!

    And, what a clever idea. You can even store extra straight pins in the jar below, or buttons, or even snacks. 🙂

      Yup, you could. . .if you didn’t glue it by mistake. . .lol!

Looking forward to reading what's on your mind. . .
