Hot Bod

 My friend Marlena is a seamstress.  She makes my curtains for me.  She makes lots of people's curtains.  She was asked by a friend of hers to come up with some ideas for a new gift shop she is opening.  Marlena asked if I had any gifty ideas.  I came up with a few things and she asked if I would make a sample of one of the pin cushions I had mentioned.  She thought it could be used as a jewelry holder.
 So I went to work.
 I got the pattern and video instructions here.
 I got the candle stick at the Dollar Tree for a dollar - duh.
 I toyed with spray painting the candle stick, but decided to go au naturele.
I think the mini Christmas ornament is my favorite part.
