Crocheted cactus pincushion

I crocheted this little cactus with the red flower for use as a pincushion. It's removable and the base is an empty glass votive candle that I saved after the candle burned away.

I sewed a little ladybug on the cactus for style and luck. The glass cup can hold extra pins, small buttons or sewing novelties.

This item is available for sale in my Etsy shop:

Doris, that is so cute!!! Hope you and Gizzy are doing well and staying cool. It is so hot and humid this year, seems like it just gets worse every year... or maybe it is just me.. LOL! Have a great week my friend.
Hugs, Sandy

This is ADORABLE!!! I went to Etsy and saw the chicken centerpiece, but I didn't see other things. I need to go back to your Etsy page and look around better.
