Thank you for all your compliments on my good looks and my crafting talent. I feel so undeserving of your praise. Probably because my mother spent so much time being critical when I was growing up. Wait...let me get another glass of wine.
So anyhoodle. I was poking around the craft room yesterday looking for a kit or small stitching project that I could whip up so that those of you who are just trolling for cross-stitch content might stop and look for a second. And I came across the Just Another Button Company pincushion kit I bought. I've only bought one even though I think they are all adorable. I've actually restrained myself. I guess when I see that kit, I see a pile--a BIG pile--of money burning. Not any more*...
I did get a little grumpy when I was making this; I won't lie. They said I should pin that calyx in place before I stitched it, but I'm so awesome, I thought I could hold it in place. (Really, I'm so lazy I couldn't go up a flight a stairs to get pins.) After pulling out my stitches for the third time, I went and got the pins. Utterly defeated! But, it looks pretty good, doesn't it?
*Is it wrong that unfinished it's burning money, but finished it's a pincushion?
