Apologies for the bad image, it's a screen grab from the Zoom!
The maker found a wasp's nest and wedged fabric scraps into the individual cells to make the pin cushion. Genius!

This was found by Steve Wiman, the owner of Uncommon Objects in Austin TX.

It was a wonderful presentation!
It was recorded (I want to see it again). Hopefully, they'll offer it online.
Worth the price of admission!

"If you're not OK with dust, you shouldn't be a collector."
