A two-fold meaning to the title of this post...........
First, I had a busy weekend watching my son race his bike. I have to admit that I am always on "pins and needles" during one of his races. These guys are traveling at a high speed and close proxemity during these races and wrecks are not uncommon. Luckily we have had an accident free year of racing. My second reference to "Pins and Needles" refers to the pin cushions that I have been creating. Here's one I finished this weekend.
I found this white china creamer at a thrift store for 25 cents. I combined it with a hand-stitched quilt piece that was made by a wonderful neighbor when I was growing up, some eyelet and buttons from the thrift store, some ribbon made to look like a measuring tape, a small buckle from my scrapbook supplies and last, but not least, a shoestring! This has made a nice addition to my sewing table.
