Pinpoints

After having parted with one of my pincushions that
I didn´t like any more, I attempted to make a new
one - and out came these...













I call them therapeutic pincushions - useful as well as
curative…
While holding pins and needles, they offer the opportunity
to voodoopin unfavourable feelings and vices such as -
machine skribbled just as they came to mind, in English
and German – grief, Großspurigkeit, grumpiness, sorrow,
Frechheit, faintheartedness...

Super Idee. Da könnte man dann ja für die persönliche Teufelsaustreibung vielleicht auch spezielle Wörter bestellen.

I think those are wonderful and think they might have been therapeutic to make as well! Thank you for the comment about my witch - it means a lot x

Thanks, everyone, und danke... - they were quite therapeutic to make, yes, I like to let words free-motion flow onto fabric... + hey, I might even, as Suschna says, offer custom order word selections, so in case someone is interested in a pincushion with personal bad habits, names of ex-lovers, political opponents, noisy neighbours - just let me know...;)
