TAKE A WORD


PIN CUSHIONS

I confess I have always hated sewing with a passion mainly because it requires a preciseness in measurement and cutting I haven't the patience for.  So when I saw SEWING was to be our theme at TAKE A WORD I wondered what I would be inspired to create.   

And then I thought about pin cushions.  In my mind's eye I saw a voodoo doll with pins of all kinds sticking from its little body and knew you would be shocked.  What about an old doll then with a fabric body, could I stick pins into that?  Even though I had a twinkle in my eye at the thought, I knew you would disapprove.  Mmmmmmm.   Pale and exhausted and devoid of inspiration suddenly I had a vision ....  of a finely toned torso ...... and then the rest was history.  Who wouldn't want to own such a pin cushion surely it would inspire even me to sew!

Thank you, Marie.

Oh my word, Ann, you're right about that inspiring torso pin cushion! What a super piece of art. Congratulations on being published again in Digital Studio. You certainly deserve that honour and much more, in my mind. I am, yours truly, a BIG fan!xx

A voodoo doll with a difference!! Wonderful take on the "six pack" where your bricks outlines add much more to the "pack". A superb piece of thinking outside the frame. Funny and fabulous. Thanks so much for being our inspiration this week.

What a good vision dear Ann... A sexy pin cushion indeed!
And so well done, as usual! (I should certainly have been the only one not to be shocked by a doll with pins into her fabric body... You know that, don't you? :))
Bravo my friend!
I'm really fan of your artwork!
