A customer on Etsy lost her pincushion ring and asked if I was making more.

I couldn't make just one.

I developed these a while back.  
The cushion is 1 inch across. 
This is a very comfortable pin cushion
 you can wear on any finger.  
It is adjustable to your size and totally hypo-allergenic, unless you are allergic to wool. Heaven forbid!

There is no metal, 
I devised a clever comfortable way to use Velcro.

You'll never lose your stitching needle again...or like me....drive away in your car with your needle in the knee of your jeans.
And don't worry, you won't prick yourself,
 I've lined the base for protection.

Oh yes, the best part... the cushion is stuffed with raw wool.
And oh look, a chenille needle is included.

Very nice woolie bling!

Natural Surroundings

There is nothing better than real wool.  

It's like real wood, real flowers, anything natural and non toxic. That's what I want to surround myself with.  Natural fibres; linen, wool, cotton.  
Furniture made from wood that's not been processed or pressed and has been protected 
(if it's vintage and painted from the middle of the last century).
 Leather is good too but some folks prefer not.  

It's all personal.
Your dishes, your bedding, your clothing,
 your home. 
 Layer it up with real things. 
Edit out the items that don't please you, 
and don't make you healthy.  
Start planning now for next year's garden today.
Eat healthy, live healthy. 

What pleases you?
