It's A Wrap

Here is a quick and easy handmade birthday gift. Makes a great gift when your daughter comes home and says she needs a last minute birthday gift for a friend - tomorrow!

You will need:
 bobby pins
fine gage wire
 beads
card stock
birthday or other greetings stamp

Take your fine gage wire and wrap it around the crimped part of the bobby pin three times tightly. Add a bead. Position the bead where you want it and wrap the wire once or twice snugly repeat until you have the desired number of beads. Cut the wire. Tuck the raw end of the wire into the last bead. Cut a piece of card stock to your desired size. To size, slip bobby pins onto card stock and add the needed space to stamp your greeting.

The Joy of Embroidery

I've rediscovered my love of embroidery. Check out my "little knitting girl." The pattern is available in my Etsy shop and would make a great gift for the knitter in your life! The pattern fits an 8" hoop and comes with a stitch guide.

New Monster

I made this wee little monster for my daughter's friend. But, when Amanda saw it, she had to keep it!

Project Bag

I can't seem to have enough project bags. For this bag I took three pretty average looking yarns and worked them into this bag that has an earthy vibe. It's a perfect size for the baby blanket I'm working on. It would also be the perfect size if you were working on a granny square project.
