This blog started in January of 2011 as a 365 day project of creativity and using the otherwise unusable: paper crafts, jewelry, sewing, fiber art, pottery, and wherever else I might be led.
It is really now what I would call a journey blog.
Days 180-181: Duct Tape Flower Pens, Knitting Progress and Embellishments
I worked with the kids last night on a quick little project that I have done before and originally found on this lovely blog by Seven Sisters. The kids went to town on making these and it was fun, quick, and I already had the supplies on hand from planning to make them a while back. Sometimes I love when I don't follow through, then I just maintain an amazing stash and am ready to do a craft at any moment! Bring on the rainy days! I have solutions for the next month!
Here is my purple flower pen with added green leaves from the original ones on Seven Sisters.

I also spent nearly the whole day (a bad back day....yuck) in bed knitting this chord and stitching it to the bottom line of my super DUPER BULKY yarn shawl thingy. I used an entire skein, and am only half way around....so I guess a trip to the yarn store is in order as well. I also am adding some beads to accent parts of the pattern. I have a few different colors along the same idea to embellish this free form creation. I am sharing this on Debbie's Newbie Party! Thanks for hosting, Debbie!
