Jean sent her pincushion entry. She says it's a genuine NZ Pine tree log pincushion. NZ stands for New Zealand, because that's where she lives. Isn't that exciting? She took a photograph of a slice from a tree, printed it onto photo fabric, cut and stitched, and ended up with this very inventive pincushion.
