Acorn or Gumnut?

I took advantage of linking in with Cheryll for the monthly FNWF and did some more work on the crocheted  rainbow blanket.  It's coming along nicely and I'm now part way through the 2nd repeat of colours.   But I also wanted to do another bit of stitching ........ Crochet Stitching ...... so I made this little pincushion ..... the  free pattern  from Squirrelpicnic.com calls it an Acorn ....... but once I had it sewn together I kind of wondered if it didn't look a bit like a Gum Nut ....... and since we don't have any Acorn Trees, but do have  several Gum Trees on our little block, I figured it was fitting to have it photographed in one of the gum tree branches!

I've spent part of today clearing out part of the spare bedroom (which was DD's until she moved out a few months ago) ...... I'm planning to turn it into the guest room .... with room for  my letter writing desk and a bookcase so it can be used and not just sit vacant.  Our home is only small, so I need to use the spaces we have ...... but being small, it also shows up the clutter really, really well!!!  Decluttering is a  work in progress ...... no photos until I get it a bit cleaner lol ...... Unfortunately the Decluttering took me to the little cabin ........ where all the pretty yarn is .........
It doesn't take much to get me sidetracked .............. and I think I've found just the pattern for  this .........

Tidying up is fatal. There's always something to distract you. As a lover of Oak Trees I adore the acorn

Love the acorn! good luck with the declutter.....I found the only way to do it well is to move house....downsizing....I guess that is not an option for you!

Cute acorn. I agree with Gina, tidying up always distracts one and you start off on something else and forget you were `tidying up ´

I love your acorn gum nut - great idea to photograph it in the tree. Those yarns would side track anybody! delicious. xx
