Day 144: This and That

I did a little of this and that today.  I made tags for my knits, including swatches of the yarns I used and the labels from the yarns too.  Then I felt free to use up the ends of the yarns for experimenting with flowers and ruffles  I knit the pink and light green ones  and crocheted the three little flowers in the top right corner of the pictures.  I don't know what I am going to use any of them for yet, but that doesn't keep me from making them =)

 I also reworked a little turtle neck I made while at my mom's place.  I misjudged the size originally and couldn't get it over my head.  So I sat on the idea for more than a week now, and I then felted it a bit, cut (YES, YIKES, WITH SCISSORS) and then bound the edge with crocheted ribbon.  I can now get it over my head.  I just fold the corners in and it looks really cute.   I used a "Magic Ball" made by Be Sweet.  Love those colors! 

I popped into a garage sale, and I found these treasures.  Lots of ear bobs (that is what my mom calls those clip on earrings)!  I plan to rework them into buttons and other embellishments.  I put them in the tumbler for a quick cleaning, and they are totally cute.  I threw one into my red flower right away!

This one is my favorite!  I saw this cute little pin!  AND IT OPENS!  Hooray!
