After pinning out pieces of my Dad’s sweater vest (no, I’m still not done with my Christmas presents, sigh), I noticed that the pincushion I use for my blocking pins is all covered in dried starch flakes from when I blocked my grandmother’s crocheted snowflake ornaments just before Christmas. I’ve never really been happy with that one anyway, so this is just the perfect excuse to make myself a new one! Due to a never-ending list of things I will never have enough time to get done, I will probably just end up doing something cute but simple. But I sure had fun drooling over these – and SO many more – beautiful handmade creations on Flickr. How inspiring to find so much creativity just to make something relatively small and functional. Amazing!
