Pincushion Ready for Service!

Finally I have something ready for a "Friday Finish!" I have been using this pincushion for 2 years without completely having it finished and today was the day to get 'er done. It already was sewn with a gathering string on the bottom and I had it filled with wool roving. The problem was that it wasn't knotted off and it didn't have a covered base. It never quite stayed in the silicone ringed frame. So I have solved all of that today in under an hour.

It was enjoyable to be out on the patio to do this little task. The extra materials are going to be for my friend Deb's pincushion. I think her's was in the same state as mine. But I predict that by the end of the evening it may be more useable.

The final step included a glue gun to attach the fabric covered cardboard circle. This was easy enough!
Time to head over to Deb's house and put her's into a finished stage too.

Kathy, what a lovely pincushion. I am absolutely no good at anything like this and I so admire those who have these talents.

Thanks so much for stopping by my kitchen. I hope you're having a great weekend.
