Eye Candy. What I have been working on for the fibre show in May. The make-do pincushions have a variety of bases...old door knobs, pewter and glass salt and pepper shakes (glass ones are filled with buttons), a glass jar with buttons and a silver candlestick. I used my own pattern (Primitive Make-do Pinkeep). The bunnies are holding strawberry pincushions. The pillows are embroideried using varigated red peal cotton. Tonight I worked on dressing 12 dolls. Now they are ready for faces, hair and embellishments. I love to make my grungy dolls!

Such cute pinchusions. Such a good idea to recycle things and make them useful again.
