It's been a crafty kind of day...




I finished 3 eggs today, but can only put up this one that I put the hat on and how 'bout that flower..grin This girl wants to make a real statement. The bead in the middle is one that I made on the first day I quit smoking. The other eggs are for gifts so can't put them up yet...
I found a little do-da online that shows how to make a lapel pin by making the knitting needles out of tooth picks and beads, so I decided to make one. This is the first time I have ever knitted with thread instead of yarn, and what a difference. Much harder... Then I decided to make beads to put on the needles instead of the plastic pearls... so I did. There are now 3 sets of the knitting needles and with the elongated beads, I think I will make stitch markers. Will have to see..
