A perfect pincushion

My husband puts up with a good deal for the sake of my craft. Pins lying around the house do not fall into that category. His relationship with sewing really deteriorated one day when he stepped on a pin cushion. The plucking of pins and needles from the foot of one’s husband is a regretful task. I wonder, would he have stepped on one of these?

    Haha, my dad was similarly afflicted when I was doing my hsc major work. I tended to use the arm of the couch as a makeshift pincushion, and I forgot to take them out one day. Probably not the wisest idea.
