Another pear pincushion. I like this design by Heather Bailey.
As well as having room for lots of pins it serves as a needlecase too. The leaves at the top of the pear are felted and plenty thick enough for several needles.
Coming into Spring makes me feel more energetic. I am wanting to spend more time outside in the garden, and going for long walks by the river or the beach. I am in a hurry to finish projects that have been hanging around far too long, so that I can start new ones.
I want to eat lots of healthy green food in stir fries and salads, drink more water and breathe all the delicious smells that are coming into the garden,and delphiniums....lots and lots of delphiniums, sweet peas, and hollyhocks and larkspur this year...I can hardly wait !
