My mom hands me this owl pin cushion and says, “Here, this is for you.”
Of course, I think it’s darling and say, “Wow! Thank you!! He’s so cute!”
THEN my mom nonchalantly adds, “Oh, do you like it? I made it.”
My mother, master quilter extraordinaire, carpenter, gardener…ok, she does it all and with perfection but not that fussy kind of perfection, she does it with that comfortable, amiable perfection…sigh, I love my mom. Anyway, mom once described her wardrobe as Goodwill Chic because she is so adept at finding wool, silk, antiques, and more at thrift stores.
One day she just whipped up a couple pin cushions out of some thrifted wool and gave one to me.
He has cute little wings.
Cute owl ears…
A little upcycled wool bottom to protect my fine, fine furniture.
And a darling ribbon…
I will have to get come cute straight pins to do him justice!
Yeah, my mom is pretty amazing.
