Oh, I was self-indulgent after some long hard days last week and DURING THE DAY (I usually do all my projects at night when the kids are in bed) I got crafty!
A while ago, I had a little beaded scissor fob that broke. I saved the beads and went to Hobby Lobby to get some better materials to try to fix it. Well, that led me to the bead and jewelry aisle, and I thought, if I’m fixing a fob, why not try out making one for myself?
So I picked out a bunch of pretty beads and that plastic filament string, and crimping tubes, and clasps. But not a tool because my husband has a lot of good tiny pliers for electronics and I didn’t want to commit to adding “jewelry making” onto my slate of hobbies!!
Then that stuff hung around for months and months. Finally last week I got a hankering to figure it out. And here’s what I came up with!
I LOVE them! I love them so much I want to make more and more! I do not have enough scissors for many many fobs so I will try not to go crazy but that will be hard! I guess I need to go back and get myself a tool so I don’t have to swipe my husband’s stuff!
I’ve also done some stitching and I finished up September from Joyful World!
Aside from quite a few color changes, I swapped the “month” on this one. This design was originally supposed to be October but I switched it with the Owls originally planned for September. I thought the Owls looked more Autumnal (I changed the apple into a pumpkin). And here in Arizona there is nothing autumnal about September. Also, I associate hedgehogs with school as one of my favorite teachers ever collected hedgehogs and they always make me think of her. So Hedgehogs-Back to School-September and Owls-October.
Only November and December left to go with the Joyful World Calendar! I really love how it’s coming out!
