When the dog eats your mitten........


Well make a pincushion, of course!

I loved these mittens they were wool and tan and warm and apparently my Pebbles liked them just as much. Although, never did I consider eating them, yummy as I thought they were. (the leather is so tough to chew-know what I mean?) I couldn't possibly just toss the chewed up remanents in garbage......not me....must salvage.....

Hence this pincushion was born. The bottom is the undamaged -thanks for not chewing my cuff Pebbles- cuff, the top is 100% pink wool and the spots are what was left of the leather from the palm of the mitten. Pebbles was also considerate enough not to eat both mittens. She operates on the “one for me one for you” theory. That leaves me with either one cold hand or………… another pincushion. I think I’ll opt for the latter.


Now the question is.... is it a mushroom or as my husband asked....

"is that a muffin?" Butter anyone?

I think Pebbles inadvertantly did you a favour! I think it's a mushroom muffin ;-) Whatever, it's completely gorgeous x

Cupcake! I think it's a pink frosted cupcake.

Oh a cupcake I hadn't thought of that- oh so clever Anina.

Frosted mushroom muffin cupcake?

My 9 yr old daughter was sitting next to me when I opened your blog and she said "look at the cupcake". So there is another vote for cupcake, probably because of the pink on top. I thought mushroom when I first saw it though. Whatever it is, it is cute!

Upcycling at its best. It's adorable. :)

Well it's absolutely lovely (intented or not)...and Pebbles looks just too innocent to be the culprit??? Mary

I gotta say, your writing always makes me giggle. We must have the same sense of humor!

Go, pebbles, go! Wish my Sarah would be so creative.

Cheers! LA
