I remember my Mom having a Tomato Pin Cushion and this stamp set made me smile when I saw this one, although there is a strawberry dangly thing and it's all embroidered it's EXACTLY like my mom's but just a little different!!!! ;)  lol  SO, I went with some grungy homey kinda paper and used some FABULOUS pens from Webster's Pages to make it an authentic Pin Cushion, used a zig zag die to mimic the pinking shears I always got in trouble for playing with (you know you did too! ;) ) and some pink seam binding... all these sewing supplies and I can't even sew a button... LOVE MY CRAFTS!!!!! :)

  13. Sew nice. Like the pins used. Wish I knew how to sew. My mother was a wonderful seamstress. I took Home Ec sewing in high school.
    Had jury duty summons today. 25 people were selected. I was left in remaining 28 group and after waiting for some time we were told we were not needed & could leave.
