First up, stitchmarkers. I have quite a few, some I've made, bought or received in swaps/gifts/orders.
I prefer for me, the ones totally formed by 1 wire (which I cannot do at all, I wish I could) or split rings.
These below don't need anything done to them, they are fine as they are.
So you can see I have a bit of retrofitting to do!
Next up, corkboard. Your ordinary, used a coupon, corkboard from your local craft store.
After seeing Cristi's, I knew I wanted to make my own with wine corks so onward...(hehe like a year later)
Got a bag o'corks that were lying around and commenced to afixing them.
EVIL YELLOW glue gun! Hot, hot, hot!! (ask me how I know ;) note to self, get one of them low heat type ones so ya don't burn yourself!) (I know, it's cause it's yellow huh!)
Then you go into the garage to find another box o'corks you've been saving for like 2 years!!! (hubby will be so proud I've used about 1/2 of them! He's the wino, not me! hic-cup!)
Then after some gluing, cussing cause you burnt yourself...again, and careful placement,
you have a corkboard!
Another note to self. Scissors don't cut corks too well!
Ahhh now in it's place! FYI the bird is from some Charlotte peeps (you know who you are!!), the pink fabric has buttons my son hand-sewed on, and the top card.....
Well, this says it all!!
I got this Lucky bamboo the week I found out I had a suspicious area on my mammogram in early May. I didn't search it out, just saw it in eyekea.
Yesterday, I found out I'm finished with treatments and now it'll just be more mammograms and MRI's to monitor and ensure no recurrence.
I'm thinking though, it's the replanting of this in the vase with the rocks that did it, so iffin you were going to do this...just beware and catch it sooner than I did. Not sure if it can be fixed...my black thumb is back! Or it was to last long enough to see me through these last few months...hmmm
