A Tale of two Pincushions

One cute and one subversive


First the cute one, a teeny little crown, which I made using the cap of a 2l cola bottle as the base. The top decoration is a flower bead threaded onto a pearl headed pin.



Now the subversive one (read no further if you are of a nervous or easily offended disposition). You might recall a few weeks back I posted a picture of a long pincushion I made for the Monthly Challenge. In true Victorian Style I lovingly spelled out the word "PINS" in pins . Last week I came to use it and I found this:-



I think I have a poltergeist (or a teenager)

Somebody played a little joke on you! I couldn't see it very well, but when I squinted I knew exactly what it said!

Love the crown, thats a cutie

Someone obviously has way too much spare time to play with pins. Could it be the excitement of end of year exams almost finished?

Sally said...
