The binding is even done - which is another thing that rarely gets finished around here!

Do You Know Where Your Needles Are?

On a video I was watching this morning, someone mentioned deconstructing a pin cushion to find out what was in there.  Well, I have  make that had, an old pin cushion that I've had forever, that I never use, that I never liked, so I dug it out on a whim and deconstructed it.  Here's what I found:
