... because my rubber gloves are b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!
I just could not help myself when I saw this dah-ling pair at the local dollar store.
I'll be putting them to good use. I've got lots and lots of felting to do over the next little while as I ready myself for the yearly Prince Edward County Studio and Gallery Tour.
This is my second year participating. It was so much fun meeting all the very interesting people who swung by last September I thought I would be a fool not to participate again.
I whipped up this pincushion the other week.
The shape reminds me of a Donut Peach. Have you ever tried one? Ohhhhh... you really should. They usually show up in my market sometime in July. They are thrilling to the taste buds... but I digress. I'm thinking I'll make a few more of the pin cushions for the show. I do have to come clean, however.
The cheery felted ball punctuating the cushion is store bought---- eeeeeek! Ornamantea has lovely, well-priced ones in colours that make me happy. I, once again, could not help myself. Besides, as they use to say at the end of Craft Corner Deathmatch, "sometimes it is just cheaper and easier to buy it"! Gosh, I enjoyed that show...
I hope you are enjoying your weekend and the longest day of the year--- for those of you who live north of the equator!
