The photo above is my Tea Cup Pincushion in the making:
My favorite tea cup has developed cracks in the glaze on the inside of the cup around the bottom and sides. I'm afraid to use it anymore because every time I pour hot water in the cup I'm afraid it will shatter. I had that happen once to a coffee mug.
So, I decided to turn my tea cup into a tea cup pin cushion. Only, I want to reserve the pincushion part for needles and use the saucer area for pins.
My plan is to hot glue buttons around the middle of the pincushion and use the button eyes as garages to park my needles. Then hopefully I'll remember which needles are parked in which color button. Sounds like a plan. Hope it works.
I'll try to remember to get some photos of how I put this pincushion together. I'm using an old tomato pincushion for the middle. There are videos on youtube about how to make a pincushion. I'm using some of their ideas and some of my own.
He rows the fox across the river, leaves the fox, picks up the chicken and together they go back across the river. And since he can't have the chicken and the corn together, he leaves the chicken and brings the corn across the river and leaves it with the fox.
Then he heads back across the river to retrieve the chicken and makes one more trip that unites them all.
(The riddle may be too easy, but I like it)
