Pins and Posies - pincushion

Happy New Year to you all and may you be healthy and full of creativity.

I have just finished this silvery lavender silk pincushion fashioned on the top of a pressed glass Mason Jar.  I filled the pincushion with crushed walnut shell to keep your pins sharp. The walnut shell seemed to make the shaping of the cushion easier. The posy of silk ribbons is worked on a slip and draped around the cushion. It makes an elegant storage jar as well.  What colour  can I make next - I'm completely addicted!!!
It will be available as a kit soon.
