function meets fun

 I'm constantly fighting the pin box while working on the design wall.  I keep the pins behind me on the table...  And while I keep a stash stuck right into the wall, they never seem to be where my fingers can grab them easily.

I like to use the tiny applique pins because they won't bend when I stick them into the wall.  They are nice and small when I'm ready to go the machine with the piece.

A pincushion ring is the perfect solution!

Made with a silk cocoon, wool batt, velvet, a costume jewelery ring base, beads and jewels.
