A pin cushion? is that like a whoopee cushion, but with more pain attached?


Annina Report 23 Nov 2012 17:15

Just like knocking your sewing pins all over ther floor, they used to be magnetic but not now.

When I am sewing I do this about once an hour,I really must make myself a pin cushion.

I have been known to drop couscous all over the floor too, now that is fun.

Do not overturn your rice storage jar (as I did just now).
