Oh neat! Your baby duck is adorable and I love the cases you made, too. Hard to believe it was your first sewing project.

I love the way the stitches on the duck look like little baby duck "hair." He is just too cute. (I mean that in a good way lol). He looks like "oops, I broke my shell."

I have no interest in making candles (allergies)  but I do so love knitting and such.. I was thinking that maybe Octoberish we could do a Christmas Craft along  Unswap-swap (Yes, I would be willing to organize).. I sure can knit..and maybe there are things not on this list that people may want to do but can't cuz of lack of crafty skill or time... what do you guys think?

The little stitches don't look like much but it's SUCH a different feel before and after the little "hairs" Smiley   And he's in a snowball.  I don't know why, but yeah.  hehe.

I was amazed at how easy simple sewing is, I'm sure the complicated stuff is hard.  I tried to make a stuffed animal in middle school, but didn't really pay attention when they were teaching us about the sewing machine so I decided to sew it by hand, and every time the stitches came right out. 

I do like that idea jnaos...I won't be able to make candles or soap because I'm not able to buy the supplies for it, I'm trying not to get into buying supplies for new crafts, and everything I make for this craftalong has to come from what I already have (with the exception of a trip or two to the craft store for stuff I run out of).  Plus when I made candles a few years ago, the mess alone is enough to keep me from wanting to try it again just yet.

Oops  Lips sealed I bet I would have known it was a snowball if Easter wasn't around the corner.  Grin

Jnaos, I think you have a great idea there. I couldn't really help out right now but there might be others who could. Good luck.

Since we are beading I would post what I did today.  It is an eyeglass holder.  I saw one in the Public Television catalog for around 50.00..mine was about 6.00.  I used those packets of beads that you can supposedly make three bracelets out of.  1 1/3 packets were used and I can still make two bracelets.. though I won't.



and

basically the eyeglasses rest through  the hoop by the stem and are folded ... not the traditional granny wear way where you have beads on both sides of your face... I made it for my friends mom who said she always misplaces her glasses and wished she had somewhere to put them

Oh I use fishing line to bead with.. I find it hardly EVER breaks and is cheap.

I'm not that much of a computer newb but the yahoo groups thing seems difficult to use to me..
I didnt get to make any ornaments in January either which stinks because I thought up this really great idea for them too. But I have to wait until they start selling those clear glass ornaments again which is usually in October I think.


just wanted to let you know, i work at hobby lobby, and i know that we sell these all year long in the craft glass aisle. so if you have one of those around...
