Pincushions ~ I’m smitten

I don’t know what it is about these little cuties that appeal to me so much but I think it’s just that they are so dang cute.  I found an etsy store that makes them and I was off and running.

I just received the book, Pretty Little Pincushions, and I can’t wait to get the time to drool over these.

    What I’m really thinking about branching out into are Ornaments. Yule ornaments, Green man, pents, suns, fairy stars, snowflakes and other obvious motifs.
