Pincushion Love

Untitled
Here is the sad state of a pincushion. Much used and abused and never a glance in its direction from one end of the year to the next. See how pins and needles abound in an ugly unkempt fashion? Regard the state of the fabric covering. Does this not speak of a woman who keeps a disorderly house?!

It is amazing what a five minute gap to fill can result in – waiting for some files to upload – sitting next to the fabric shelves. Thread within reach. Scissors at hand. A twitchy disposition and well embedded protestant work ethic…

Newly backed, colour co-ordinated OCD-esque prettiness. After all these years of neglect, this little pincushion has earned her right to shine.
