Every once in a while I begin by playing and suddenly, I feel I'm on to something really special. I begin with an idea and it takes me to this lovely place where I am lost in the fibers, the colors and the materials. Wool is my newest love because it is a joy to embroidery. The stitches, when combined with needle felting take on so much dimension. I used hand dyed silk ribbons on the top and added stranded cotton for the remaining stitches. Its easy to see that a recent trip to the bead shop inspired even more adornment and texture. They add a lovely irridescent luster which is such a pretty complement to the soft wool.

This would make a beautiful addition to a pincushion collection or the perfect gift for a special stitcher in your life. I hope it inspires someone to bring a bit of their heart into their work. You just never know what beauty lies in the imagination.

I always add an emery pocket to my pincushions. Muslin holds the emery safely inside so you can choose to sharpen your needles just by poking them into the cushion a bit deeper. This gives you the option of simply conditioning your needles in the natural oils provided by the wool or to take off any burrs or dulling with the emery. The bulk of this pincushion is stuffed with new polyester fiberfill to give it loft and softness.

5 3/4" high, 4 1/2 inches across and 2 1/2 inches thick!
