Wonderfully blobby, beautiful pincushion by embroiderer Karen Ruane.
It was hard to choose which one, but the red won, it usually does. There are more available here.
Buttons on the underside.
One of the things I love about Etsy is the freebies most sellers send. I usually forget and feel guilty about this, but do try and remember to put in a little something, it’s part of the niceness of buying direct from the person who made it. Karen included these two blobby little buttons for which I will have to find something suitably special.
