To Pin..it...or not...

ho hum, easter is gone and the chocolates too...the sun is still shining...I love the yellow brightness of the brave and cheery daffodils outside...the ground is dry and the air still sharp and cold...but spring is moving closer...the lighter nights are a great uplift to the winterwoollyfied spirits...

...and I ponder over a new pincushion design...just what colour of pins to use...and how many pins is just enough?





 
is that about right do you think?

So pretty, I have a weakness for colourful pin tops like that and they make a lovely decorative item in your pin cushion as well as serving a purpose.
