I went shopping for some new pins. A simple enough task I thought. I was wrong. I spent a good ten minutes gazing in absolute awe and confusion at the pin display in Spotty. A huge price range for what in many cases all looked to be essentially the same sort of pins. After pontificating for a good while it became apparent that some were short, some were long, some were gold, nickel, name your metal of choice, and that quilters apparently only like the colour yellow. So much difference yet ultimately they were all pins.
I chose the cheap yet colourful ones in the end. They’re making me happy… but I wonder – is there something about pins that I’m missing?
