“the man who achieves makes many mistakes, but he never makes the biggest mistake of all - doing nothing” ~ benjamin franklin

yesterday. a snow day. i set out to needle felt a little bird. things went awry from the beginning. i was interrupted, distracted, impatient - quite the trifecta of detriments to any craft project. so i ended up with a blob of sorts and was uneasy and frustrated just looking at it. but, you know...life, lemons, and all that. i sat there and thought..."what do i need?" well, its a small thing but i need a pincushion for my embroidery needles, felting needles, etc. well, hm, nothing to make a traditional type so i started looking around. oh, hm...there is a used plastic tea light...some mod podge sitting on the table...leftover black wool roving...and, look, my formless blob looks a bit like a monster with a snout...wonder if i added some eyes... be joyful.
