Look!...

...what I found "growing" in my garden.



Patriotic Tomato Pincushions! LOL Inspired by Faye's patriotic finishing frenzy, I sat down in the sewing room and made some RW&Blue pincushions. I thought this would be a fun and seasonally appropriate take on the traditional tomato pincushion.

The photography assistant gave her full tongued approval. ;o) (Gack! Isn't that football the nastiest looking thing?!)
