~vintage barkcloth pear pincushion giveaway~

To celebrate spring and in honor of Mother's Day I would love to send this barkcloth pear pincushion to one of you lovely ladies.
I made this using some pieces of that great barkcloth curtain panel, which has also become a a tote bag and a messenger bag. The pincushion is stuffed with wood shavings and I added a real twig stem and a ribbon leaf.
I promise to throw in some little surprises, as yet undetermined...
Please just leave a comment to this post letting me know you are interested. This is open to anyone...anywhere..
I will draw a name Monday morning and announce the winner!
Have a great Mother's Day!!!
