June/July’s Pincushion Challenge theme is summertime. Immediately, I though “inflatable pool!” So here it is:
I probably should have made each ring of the pool itself a different color, but I only had one yarn that was a summery color, and in my mind, this had to be made with my “strickpilz.” I had also planned to make a little yellow rubber duckie out of Fimo, but we found lice on Katja yesterday and EVERYTHING (including this pincushion) that I don’t want to go into the washing machine is being exiled to plastic bags for a few weeks. I snapped this picture before dumping the pincushion in the bag where it will stay until after the Pincushion Challenge deadline has come and gone. Sometimes it sucks to be a fiber artist.
