String

It is a planned publication from the Stampington Family of publications. I am so excited about this one.

I have already mailed off two small submissions. I also duplicated a submission and mailed it off to Green Craft as well.

We will see.

Didn't mean to drop off the earth of late. Summer activities, the construction business has picked up. and we are busy from early am 'til late night.

I have been creating - building stock for November.


Round do-dah pendant charms. Soft colors. Not pastel, more earthy than that. The above picture shows them with just the crochet finished. After I crochet a few, I dump the shank buttons (or marbles or round stones) out and dig. These are shank buttons.
Then I attack with E6000 and glue my baubles in. I have some woven leather buttons (somewhere) that I want to do some with. The last step is to add the jump rings. Then I need to figure out a way to attach these to some sort of card for display. Still perking that in my mind.

You saw this the other day. I have a few of these made. It is crocheted from a highly textured yarn called parfait and a few balls were in a thrifted bag. Not sure what these will be used as yet. I thought about sewing them to the bottom of some baby girl onsies, but I'm not sure. They also might work as brooches. I do know they are easy enough to make sitting at a softball game and small enough not to be too hot to work on in this heat.
I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend. I'll be at the ball field.
