I made and designed this pincushion. It is made of wool. It took a while to figure out the exact way of doing it to give the effect I wanted....
I am happy with how it came out...thinking of selling the pattern....The flower center is where the pins go, hard to see them because they look like beads...

I recently made this Bra for a Breast Cancer Charity Auction. It's called "sea cup' and depicted one of my favorite things, the ocean.

I received afirst place ribbon and it was auctioned live. My boss Patti won the auction.

I wanted to share with you this beautiful bloom in my passion flower plant.

In Uruguay and Brasil we call it Mburucuya.

Here are some interesting facts!

In the 15th and 16th centuries, Spanish Christian missionaries adopted the unique physical structures of this plant, particularly the numbers of its various flower parts, as symbols of the last days of Jesus Christ and especially the Crucifixion:
The pointed tips of the leaves were taken to represent the Holy Lance.
The tendrils represent the whips used in the Flagellation of Christ.

The ten petals and sepals represent the ten faithful apostles (less St. Peter the denier and Judas Iscariot the betrayer).
The flower's radial filaments, which can number more than a hundred and vary from flower to flower, represent the Crown of Thorns.
The chalice-shaped ovary with its receptacle represents a hammer or the Holy Grail
The 3 stigmata represent the 3 nails and the 5 anthers below them the 5 wounds (four by the nails and one by the lance).
The blue and white colors of many species' flowers represent Heaven and Purity.
