a few weeks ago one of my puppy nightmares came true, Floyd got a hold on the beautiful pincushion dear Rachael made for me two years ago when I got into sewing. here are some pictures of it. but alas, Floyd found it and chewed the beautiful scallop edging here and there. after becoming very mad at him I became very sad to see this dear pincushion lying there, I did not dare to take pictures of it. mind you, the unraveled edging as you see in the pictures is what I had to do to take the top loose from the bottom, it is not how Floyd left it.
last night I wanted to use the pincushion for my pins and decided to give it a go and try to crochet a similar but new top. I did not have the larger cotton thread at hand in these pretty colors, so went with Catania cotton instead. just by taking a good look at the original, I crocheted happily along and after a few hours it was restored for as best as I could.
now off to enjoy my latte and cupcake, followed by happy pinning and sewing again!
enjoy your weekend
