Last week my market models for "Fresh from the Garden" arrived from their trip to Nashville. The pouch and tomato were put into my stitching box (see previous post) and put to use right away. Then yesterday I had a different idea for the tomato and and I just love it so I'm sharing it with all of you.
I had previously purchased a distressed off-white candle stand from Pottery Barn (by now you all know that's my favorite store).
I set the tomato pincushion on top but it looked a little lost.
So I added a small crochet doily and the whole thing became a piece of functional art for my desk! Ask anyone who has ever seen my desk. . . . . I have needles and pins stuck in coasters, fabric scraps and even paper. If the doily was green it might even look like lettuce but I don't think I'll take it that far!
If you want to make one for yourself just look for a candle stand you like that will work in your room. Just make sure the top is not too big.
