Our price: £4.00

If you know, you know!

If you don't, I am here to enlighten you that ground walnut shell is an excellent filler for pincushions and heat packs. Ground to approximately granulated sugar grain size, the shells have a weightiness to them so pins and needles sit upright in a filled pincushion, with the bonus that the act of pushing them in keeps them sharp. That weightiness also mean that a heat pack will shape itself to the body.

Packed in a brown paper bag, tied up with string, a pack weighs 200gm.

The pincushion shown is 12cm square and contains just under 200gm.

Saturday still life with stitches
The slow slow development of a new kit.
Because I’m worth it!
I do plan to share, though
We kept hens for years and years but left our wee flock with the new owners when we moved house nearly five years ago. We miss their burbling chatter.
Today I bought a box from a roadside ‘shop’ close to home and was delighted at these lovelies when I opened it up 🤗
