Do you sometimes scratch your head and say "Hmm?" I had to chuckle when I saw these pincushions.
I thought of a couple of things. First, my husband, bless his heart, (where I am from you always know someone is getting ready to say something less than edifying when prefaced with "bless ____'s heart.") has this saying when something is less than optimum but better than dismal. "Well it is better than a sharp stick in the eye." I mean really? Isn't ANYTHING better than a sharp stick in the eye? I asked him once if he had ever been stuck in the eye with a sharp stick in order to know this. Or even a dull stick. How do you know if you have never experienced it?
The second thing I immediately thought was, "How could you stick pins in that? Its an eyeball for pete's sake!" Didn't our mothers tell us for millenia "Be careful you're going to poke your eye out!" I don't think I could stick pins in one of these pincushions. Gives me the heebie jeebies.

Now THIS is a pincushion I could enjoy!!! I love cute pincushions. You can never have too many. I have several. Though I did think I had misplaced most of them for a few days. My daughter, aka "Attila the Hun Organizer", put them all away in one box together! I was adrift not being able to have all dozen of my pincushions in use simultaneously. Organizing can be overrated.
I'll be home soon. I wonder if it is possible to be sick of pasta? Nah, I didn't think so either.
