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.
A wonderfully practical and stylish I might add idea. Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
This is a great idea, Diane and I'm going to see what I have here to do something about my "big tomato".ReplyDelete
thanks for the inspiration!
Again a great idea !!ReplyDelete
BTW. I think it is time for me to come to live in the USA because you all have so wonderful shops, like Pottery Barn :-)
Good idea! I have several tomato pincushions from estate sales!ReplyDelete
Bravo pour cette idée!!ReplyDelete
What I great idea.ReplyDelete
Now I'm going to have to shop for a candle stick.
I just found a stitching box today at Hobby Lobby like the one you posted earlier. You are gonna keep me busy in the craft room...LOL!
Great idea - I have purchased that design & cannot wait to start it !!!!!ReplyDelete
Amazing decoration idea! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
But first I need to sew this pretty tomatoe ;-)!
And - if there were a Pottery Barn here in Europe - I am sure it would be my favourite shop too!
Love from Austria
Just wonderful. I collect red tomato pin cushions too! I love the tomato on the candle stand for display.ReplyDelete
Wonderful idea! I make these pincushions all the time...using various prints...I think I will try one as a tomato. Thank you for the wonderful designs and ideas.ReplyDelete
