Table attempt

I spent the day at my parent's house yesterday, trying to finalize how my tea table will be set. My mom and I had a grand time.

With an aisle's worth of Hobby Lobby decorative glass and other random crafty bits, we piled and moved stuff for several hours.

We ended up using several things from around my mom's house - like that turquoise Scottie planter. I may accidentally lose that one!

I ended up leaving with a pretty good list of needed finishing touches. One of which was a red, square pincushion. So that's what I did today.

He's about 4" square, and an inch high. Stuffed with ground walnut shells again. I love them! They give a wonderful weight and form that lentils do not.

I obviously had to add a little gnome. Now that I've tasted the kool-aid, I am going to need serious restraint to keep from turning everything into a fabric covered button.

Thought I'd show the cute back - I really do love that Figgy Pudding!
