Pins & Needles

Oil on linen panel

This little tomato pin cushion belonged to my Mom and was a common sight in our household. She did a lot more sewing than I did (or do), but it comes in handy when a button comes loose.  As usual, when I am painting something with sentimental value, it soothes my soul.


  1. This is so lovely. I really like the composition. n I can't believe how realistic the spool of thread looks: the label on the top! Wow...well done.

  2. Thanks, Patricia! Appreciate your comments!
