So I went and joined a pincushion swap over on Craftster.
Except, apparently, I haven't been paying attention, and the bar has been completely raised in the pincushion dept.
I had no idea what I was letting myself in for.
I guess this is why I craft, though...it's the challenge of the whole thing!
And the individuality and creativity....who says pincushions have to be sweet and charming??
They can be super simple..
To as complicated and fiddly as you want to make it (that's a thimble there, folks!)
I think this particular one totally rocks.
It's a 3-D interpretation of Tim Burton's Pincushion Queen. You can't see it, but it even has the little pincushions on the top of the chair. :p
To make matters worse, my partner is Hoxierice. Hello..I have to match up to THAT?? :p
I joined the swap because I really need a new pincushion.
And yes, my pins are color graded. Doesn't EVERYONE do that?? Oh, and the white ones are the ones I pinched from Collette Dinnigan..If anyone is curious, the pins used by a fashion goddess for the creation of her heavenly confections, basically suck. :p They are the same as the crappy bulk ones you get in any five and dime. I feel so much better about myself. Rofl.
I have been feeling itchy to create lately, but with no direction...I guess this is a sign I need to pick up my game? :lol:
This here, though, is one pincushion I am happy to know nothing about. Ouch. Poor little guy (or girl...can't tell.)
