Wool Crazy Pincushion, done!

After careful deliberation I decided that my contribution to Roseanne's pincushion would be Summer themed...which blended nicely with her Bee Skep. So, this is what I added: I used one of her crazy blocks and made a watermelon and then I added a flag (4th of July?) and some extra bees to fill in the spaces. I decided to stop because I have to leave space for everyone else to add their part. I did add a hand dyed button by Hillcreek designs. If she hates it it can be removed and awoolen star can be added...I like it so I will send it, as is.
Whew! One down, three to go! Wo-HOO!

Oh Brenda, I am inspired- a couple months ago, I bought the "book", but just have too many other projects going to dig in. I think a pincushion is just the right size project--thanks.

Wow that is going to be some pincushion and now I want to try my hand at this-when I finish up a few other projects. LOL I've never worked with wool and I really want to now. Who will end up with this beautiful item in the end? I guess I missed the info in the beginning......
Thanks for inspiring the rest of us.
