Not that long ago, I decided that I was going to get my Sewing Machine out and "RE-learn" how to use it again. It's been a good 20 years since I've used the things, so it's going to take me awhile to get reaquanted and get back into the swing of things. Everything, except from the machine itself is my Nan's, though I do still have my Grandmother's machine as well. One day, I'm working on a project and I've got my antique pin box out. Now, my cats are like most, they insist on "helping" on everything. Which of course means, that they set you back most days because they are sitting on your stuff, putting their tails in your face, or knocking your stuff over. That day, my cats decided they were going to knock my pin box over a good ten times. I was beyond frusterated, to the point where I packed everthing up and quit for the day! Of course, as I was packing up, I found that there was a hole in my pin box. Now, that really doens't have much to do with my cats knocking my box over a million times, but it doesn't help. It just gave me an excuse to look for another project!
I looked for pin cushions for days. Looking for ones that I liked. Of course there were a lot I liked that were sewing, and I'm still very sewing challenged. So, I stuck with crocheted ones. And I found a few, but I picked two. An Apple and a Flower! They're different, and they suit me. What can I say?
