American Beauty Rose Pincushion
I am still enjoying playing with pincushions this week. Okay. I admit it, now. I might, just might, be developing an obsession with rescuing, I mean re-purposing, thrifted treasures into useful pincushions. It is my belief that we should use the best and most beautiful of tools. It only makes sense.
This pincushion is made from a teacup that was orphaned without a saucer. It needed adoption and great care. The manufacturer is Norleans and the pattern, American Beauty Rose. The name befits the design, or maybe the other way around. You can decide.
I added a hooked rose to the top. I have been playing with crocheted roses a lot this past week.
I love how the RicRac peeks out from the cup.
Even the back of the cup has a pretty painted rose.
It just makes me happy. Do you have a favorite pincushion?
