wow! this one started out at a 6.5!!! sometimes it will do down to a 6! I have to tell everyone that I only had 2 hours to do this one. That is set up, shot and process. I got it in with 4 minutes to spare. Thanks to all the comments.
I wanted the little push pin to look like spools of thread. It took me 1 hour for the set up. I did not have time to set up my lights so I was holding 2 work light with one hand and using my remote with the other. I wish I had more time to process it with color. My thread was purple.
This will be a long week but so much fun!

post challenge......wow! In the top ten!...thanks for all the comments

execution, especially the sharpness, could have been a bit better though. still 8 for the concept.

Clever image and idea.

I wonder if it would have been possible to make a heart design out of the inner strings...

The initial impression on the rating pass through was that while a technical success, the image was lacking some impact. On review, this image demans a rerating from an 8 to a 10. It works on many levels, but the initial impression is a little lacking. Perhaps a different choice of backgrounds or a textured background would have helped the original impression. Hopefully, a ribbon winner and/or a top ten ranking.
