Pin Cushion Conundrum
Yep, I've really been using the crack in our kitchen table as a "pin cushion". For months. And yes, the cat likes to bat them around, and yes, Chris is a good sport about eating dinner with the pins. But, alas, we are both tired of yelling, "No one walk barefoot in the dining room!" (if you can place that tv show reference you are amazing and I will be beyond impressed!) and we are deathly afraid of the vet bill that will ensue if Shasta decides to revisit her habit of eating sharp objects (she has indeed chewed on a pin cushion before...WITH the pins...she's a genius).
So, I think it is time for a good old fashioned pin cushion. Or, rather, a unique, modern, colorful pin cushion! The problem is I can't decide what kind of pin cushion would be best...I like so many of them. Thus, I am seeking your wise and creative advice on what kind of pin cushion you find most helpful and, well, fun to use!
If you feel so inclined, send me a picture of a pin cushion you made or just of one you've seen online that you'd like to try and I'll give it a shot! The only pin cushions I have ever made are these modern tree pin cushions I created a few months ago. They actually work really well but I didn't make one for myself and I'm up for something new :)
I have some ideas up my sleeve that I may try to work on over the next few days and I can't wait to hear what you come up with!
Happy Pinning :)
