Dinosaur

Dinosaur

      While shopping at Walmart, I had came across a dinosaur pencil box.  I knew I, definitely, needed it.  This is the perfect, "working pencil" box for colored pencils.  I like to pull the pencils I 'm working with and put them in a smaller case.  I like the new box because it is lockable.  Colored pencils are soft and the cores can break if dropped.  By locking the box, I can prevent the latch from getting caught and opened...A nightmare for all colored pencils artist.  Your expensive pencils dropping on the floor.



The key is attached to the latch, so I don't forget them on a trip.  The box is locked to prevent, accidental, opening.



From left to right:  pencil sharpener (Velcro down), brush (brush off pencil dust), pencil extender, electric eraser, Prismacolor blender, white gel pen, pen (stylus, the ink has been removed, used for indenting the paper for whiskers), KOH (name brand, not potassium hydroxide, blender), 6H graphite pencil, alcohol blender, and a white pastel pencil.


Pencils with a foam, Velco to the top to prevent tip breakage.

Gold

Gold

     I had purchased, Handy Hands, new metallic gold Lizbeth thread.  I had to give it a try and see how well it tatted.  My mom is learning to needle tat, so I wanted to see if she could use this thread with her tatting needles.  I tatted Be-Stitched tatted box, using my tatting needles.  This thread tats, wonderfully with my needles.  It held up well.  Of course, I needed to add a little bling.  




Happy Birthday...lil' sister.

Gift

Gift

      A friend, from the Farmer's Market, is on the look-out for tatting.  He had came across two balls of thread.  He looked inside the balls and found tatting shuttles in each of them.  One of the shuttles had tatting on them.  Thanks, Jes for the beautiful shuttles and thread.

Frames

Frames

     I had a couple of  2" X 2", picture frames, perfect for tatting.  The last little motifs would fit, perfectly in them.

     I had a little thread left on a bobbin and made a quick little motif.  I found this pattern on pinterest, but don't know the source of the pattern.
