Pincushions! Prizes! Competition!
Originally uploaded by Loobylu
Piecework magazine is sponsoring an Excellence in Needlework pincushion competition, with a $500 prize. Tell me you’re not dying to come up with the Platonic ideal of pincushionery and scoop that magic cash–not to mention the exhibition in the National NeedleArts Association conference, and the photospread in Piecework. The adorable pincushions here displayed–the work of Looby Lu, an extraordinarily gifted needlewoman–are just a few of the thousands you can ogle on Flikr.
Rules here (which is awfully self-sacrificing of me, since you might win.)
