Nantucket Basket Pincushions With Rocks



Remember the photo I showed you recently while making the Nantucket Basket pincushions? The rock shown was too heavy. I had to go outside and find smaller rocks, but now the pin cushions have a nice weight. The bottom of the basket has a flat wood base so they don't teeter. The decorative pins add a nice touch; these have pearls and hematite beads. I love how this came out!
