A little pincushion

Here's a little project I started last night while I was watching TV. It's going to be a pin cushion.
This is the top. It's made of wool. I love working with wool. My younger son has been taking me to the great thrift stores near his house to buy up all the wool skirts we can find. What a way to re-cycle!
Isn't this little ladybug bead cute...I got the pattern and the bead at Bird Brain Designs. I love all their patterns. All I have to do is add a little stuffing, some crushed walnuts and I have a new pin cushion. What fun!!

Oh my gosh, that is darling!!! Love the colors in it. And love the lady bug bead. I have some cute lady bug and bee buttons very similar. Loved your neighbor Victor. He is supposed to be bringing us paint color samples today. Hope his quote is in the ball park because we would really like to go with him!
