What do you do when you need a pin cushion?

Ok, what do you do when you need a pin cushion, but you can't even bear to look at, let alone touch the tomato/strawberry one's from the fabric store, or your grandma's sewing table?   You make one of course!

I have had Posey in my que on Ravelry for AGES!  It took me a while to decide what 3 colors I wanted to use, but I slowly collected them (on sale at Michaels!  2 for 1 deal!) and I found the cutest button, too.  So, I needed a small, easy road trip project a few weeks ago.  The Hubs and I finally headed north to my uncles for the weekend.  It's a 4 hour drive.  I got all of the balls done while in the car.  I stuffed them when we got home and sewed the button on.  Adorable!  And I have enough yarn left for washcloths too!  Another 2 for 1.  What a deal!  And big dashboards come in handy for holding lots of yarn!
