All in all, it's been a rather difficult week around here. Last night I was exhausted and drained, but I wanted to finish my Zakka project before the weekend. What a sweet, simple little pincushion this was to make. It was almost therapeutic to sit down and put the pieces together.
I used one of Melody Miller's darling retro clocks from Ruby Star Shining, twill measuring tape, grey linen, Hometown Town News from Sweetwater, and a few buttons from my mother's stash. I would have added a stamped element, but I haven't yet bought any fabric stamping materials. Still, it's full of things that I love -- retro goodness, newsprint fabric, and favorite colors. All in all, a welcome bit of happiness in what had otherwise been a pretty bleak day.
