Sometimes you just need a little break and something quick to make to stir your creative soul and just make you smile.  Today, I endulged myself by making a pear pincushion using Heather Bailey’s “fresh picked pincushions” pattern.  If you are not familiar with this pattern, you should check it out.  There are a number of fruits to make (pear, strawberries (two sizes), apple, and a tomato), which is technically a fruit and a veggie.  :)

I added sand so that the pear would stay where I wanted it and I think it added more dimension to it.
