Take two....posting from my phone didn't work...not sure why.  The text didn't show up. I posted pictures of my two Singer style boxes...or puzzle boxes they are called now...I aquired one yesterday when I went and picked up my birthday present from my husband that I picked out.  An ad on Craigslist.  I will show and tell later. Perhaps I should wait until my birthday.  One of the attachment boxes was thrown in with what I bought even though it doesn't go with the birthday item.  The worse for wear box on the left I had.  My plan is to make one good one out of the two.  The second picture is of some of the attachments sitting in Evaporust, a wonderful product I wish I would have know about a long time ago. I will leave them in there until tomorrow most likely. The stuff's awesome! I wish our sewing things made today were so fancy.  These must have been so beautiful to open up brand new!

A New Favorite

I found these lurking at the neighborhood Walgreens. There are multiple uses for Twizzlers super long nibs candy.....besides snacking....and a woman with braces isn't supposed to be snacking on these anyway. But hey ...I manage. They also make great bookmarks ; )

Color Chart Maker for Knitting

I used a website today called Tricksy Knitter to create a knitting/tunisian crochet color was a little wearing on my patience because it will draw so freely that I kept making mistakes and having to correct them, which I'm sure was something I was doing wrong..once you click the cell once it keeps painting so to speak...all in all though, it was a clever free tool to use and I am so glad I ran across it! Thanks Tricksy Knitter!  Give it a try!
