Yesterday afternoon I was on my laptop pinning to my Pinterest Pin Cushion
board while watching Leave It To Beaver reruns on TV. I know what you
must be thinking wow can that girl multi-task lol. I happened to see pin
cushions of some dresses that were inspired by the book/movie The Help.
I saved the pins to my board and then I started thinking ~
what a cute idea! And then it dawned on me, why
not make a June Cleaver pin cushion??? You will know it is
June because she is wearing pearls with her apron.
So, I chose some fabric and some felt and started cutting out a pattern.
Then I had to find something I could use as "pearls" and then I
remembered a box of Mardi Gras beads that I saved from years ago.
One strand of beads had tiny little beads on the end. Although not white
like June's pearls would have been, I thought the color pink would go well
with the color of the dress and that somehow June would approve :-)
I thought it turned out to be cute, but then when I stuck some pins in
June, I started to feel a little creepy. After all, I would never want
June to think it was a VooDoo doll. I may be a writer, but I am no
Stephen King lol!
What do ya'll think? Creepy or cute?
I took Bentley for a very long walk last night and he has been a
lounge pup all day today. But just you wait, he will be all
refreshed and ready to take another one tonight. That little
peanut loves his walkies!
Big Texas Hugs,
