Tomato Pincushion

I saw the inspiration for this card on Pinterest several months ago and thought it was such a clever idea! I'm fairly certain my grandmother had a tomato pincushion when I was growing up, so I became a little nostalgic about the one I saw online. As usual, when I started prepping the pieces for this card for my stamping group, I totally lost interest and thought the whole idea was a colossal waste of time! Luckily, my stamping friends disagreed and improved upon it by using a sewing stamp set that our hostess had. The grid background is something seamstresses use (pelon or something), although I would've loved to have used an actual pattern. Oh, well, the best laid plans . . . Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Yes, we did disagree with you about the card. I still had fun with the improvement.
