I had to have a little break from all this virtuous ufo finishing... (actually some of them are so old that it's like working on a new project!)
A tiny eggcup found in a charity shop provided the required inspiration:
Yes ok, I didn't really need a new pincushion... but do you only make things you need?
I didn't think so. "I make because I am" or something like that..
And now back to virtuous work.
