pincushions

I have been making some cute pincushions this summer and i
will probably put some of them up for sale on my etsy sometimes
tomorrow if time permits. My daughter Anne has just started her

first day of college and i had to drive her there. She just got her driver's license a few days ago and was too nervous to go to an " alien " city on her own. Mind you, i think i was just as nervous. I just hate traffic and oneway streets, something we are not too familiar with. Our small country town is not exactly a scarry place to drive. Yeah, well, sure we go places, i suppose it is just a matter of getting to know our way around. She'll get around easily aftera few stressfull days. So here are some pictures i took in this chilly morning. I do hope they did come out ok...

They are not so beautiful as many i did see on some beautiful blogs,but i guess
they are kinda cute.



I tend to be strict with myself and have trouble finding complete satisfaction
with the things i do. I have this terrible habit of comparing my stuff




with others and sometimes it's not good. I guess it is a necessery thing
to be strict with our work, but we have to find some satisfaction
as well. I do love doing what i do, i am just pursuing perfectness.




Although, when you think one moment, it is the little imperfections that
makes things a little more beautiful... Am i right ? Hope you find
some enjoyments with these pictures anyway...

They are beautiful! And they definitely compare to the other pin cushions I've seen on the Net. I've been wanting to make pin cushions like this for ages. I've got all the materials - all I need to do now is find the time...

I know what you mean about it never being perfect - I suffer from the same dilemma. BUT: handmade is handmade, and yes, the little imperfections (which often only you yourself can see anyhow) are what makes each item unique.

Job well done!! :)
