Fun Shaped Crayons




Look what I found this morning made from old crayons.  They are so cute and how much fun they would be to make.  I have boxes of old crayons just laying around. I am going to try this.  I wonder if I could put a little hole in the top and use Christmas molds and hang them with ribbon on my home made tree.  I set up one tree that has nothing but home made ornaments.  I think these would be really cute!  I bet my grandchildren would also love to color with a kaleidoscope crayon!

I knitted A Scarf!!!!


I have had my embroidery machine for years and when I first got it my husband said, "Don't" ever embroider anything of mine.  I have granted his request.  I embroider for everyone, but never anything for him.  I have never sewn anything for him.  He is very supportive, but he just doesn't think it is for him.  Must be a man thing.  Well back in September he told me he would like a scarf for winter.  I told him maybe I could make one for him since I never sew for him or anything.  He said O.K.  I asked him what color and he said red.  I said, don't you want black?  He said, no red.  Sooo, I said O.K. red it is. 

I have not knitted in years.  I am a beginner, you know, I can knit and purl, and that is about it.  I went to the store and brought home some burgundy colored yarn.  I asked my hubby, how is this?  He said, no I want red.  O.K.! So I took it back and bought red.  I started on this scarf back in September.  I started and then ripped it apart.  Then I started again.  I made a few more mistakes, and thought if I keep ripping it out I will never get it done.  So I decided to keep going. Every now and then my hubby would say, sure wish I had my scarf, it is getting cold outside. It has taken me since September to knit this scarf and I must say, it has about 3 tiny boo boos, but other than that I am quite proud of myself.  It is about 54" long.  I just finished it yesterday!!!  He really likes it and I sure hope he doesn't lose it!!  I think next time I will get a thicker yarn so it doesn't take so long.  Maybe I am a slow knitter.  Yes, that is probably the problem.  Also, just in case it gets throwed in the top of the hall closet and doesn't get worn, it also matches my coat!!  I am not stupid!!
