'Simply Peppermint' Pincushion

During the process of making my 'Simply Geometric' Pincushion, thoughts of peppermint candy kept bobbling around in my brain.


I found it interesting that the same concept would lend itself perfectly to the swirls found on peppermint candy.


So, I couldn't help myself. I just had to make one.


If you're anything like me, you can never have too many pincushions.


Thank you, everyone, for stopping by and leaving me such sweet comments. Y'all warm my heart more than you will ever know.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Aloha!
