Before I address this... Thank you, everyone! And now on with the quote. It's funny you mention them being 'vintagy'. I just happened to find an old clip-on earing that I decided to tear off the clip-on part in order to use this as the center piece. Well, it turns out that clip-on earing was my great-grandmother's. My mom wasn't too happy when she saw what I did with it. Oops!

I just happen to have a lot of fabric scraps that are the perfect size for such hairclips. Oh, and a whole book on beaded hairclips? Wink

very cool idea using old clip on earrings like that....i always see a ton of them at the thrift stores, but never thought of turning them into decorations like that!  i need to find a tutorial for those fabric flowers...i'm sure there is one on here somewhere, but i've heard they are a pain in the butt.

I looked at all the tutorials on here for making that type of hairclip, and I had such a hard time understanding them. I'm a visual learner, so I needed detailed pictures showing me what to do. There were posts that helped me out a lot, but I learned I also need to hear the instructions. After I finally figured out how to get them, somewhat, right the tutorials all came together for me. I'm glad I tried something new because now I know I can do this. That "I'll never be able to learn how" excuse can't work anymore.

mjadams fulfilled my request for knitting supplies, and wow did she do a good job!


Everything all togeather 2 hanks of Manos del Uruguay in Burgundy (it is a bit more red than the picture shows), 2 skeins of Sugar' n Cream in crazy orange/pink/yellow, and a gorgeous huge ball of Mermaid, a yarn made special for her LYS, a selection of multicolored straight needles in diffrent sizes, and extremely cute knitting cards.


A little closer look at the Manos and Sugar


Close up on the mermaid, sooooo pretty


and an extreme close up on the mermaid

She managed to pick two yarns that I have wanted to work with for awhile, and all three were exactly to my taste. She also managed to augment my needle selection perfectly, I've got a ton of DPS but only had one set of straight needles,  and all with out talking to me about it, spooky. This is one of the best swap packages I have ever received!
