I was just testing a new craft dies and I got 3 layer felt flowers...
3-layer Felt Flower
I can attach them to pins to turn them to brooches, but this time around I'm going to make something different with these flowers. My new stock of clips has not been opened, so I decided to use them this time. So what do I get? A pair of felt flower clips!
Felt Flower Clips
The clips used here is a little bit small, so I guess you can use it on your scarf... like my model did:

Thank you very much, Model... for being such a sport!
Remember the (felt) hearts that I prepared earlier? I know that I have some handphone straps left somewhere... but when I found them, they did not come with jump rings... So off I went searching for jump rings (I know I still have packs of them) - they are stocks left from another *CRAFT* activity (what kind of craft? TBA later... Yes, one that was not abandoned... but simply put: 'on-hold' ;-) )
... hearts, handphone strap, and a much-too-small jump rings ...
oh-oh... too small! :P
I was lucky; I found the right size of jump rings at a nearby store. The price/item is not encouraging though... since they are pre-packed in small quantity.
... bigger jump rings ...
So there you go... a set of handphone straps: Dangling Hearts for your phone, anyone? :D
I've packed my yarn collection nicely in a box for quite some time. No, definitely not for good since the box is not sealed. Though it's hard to do, I've disciplined myself (ha! ha!) not to start a big project until I've clear the major backlogs that I've accumulated since I'm gone (from my blog updates). Sometimes the temptation is very hard to resist!
This is one of the examples...
I've been eyeing the DPNs on the internet for quite some time... and finally I got it from Daiso for a very cheap price - yeah, if you buy from eBay you need to add postage and everything, right? It's bamboo, not excellently smooth, but enough to feed my curiosity on how to use DPNs. So off I went to do research on simple patterns and tutorials... (well, talk about discipline! The temptation vs. doing the right thing??? Well, I certainly did not do anything wrong here HA HA)
Finally settled on a basic sock pattern that is supposed to be easy... at least that's what I thought. But since it's been long since the last time I knit, I actually find it hard to control a pair of needles... let alone all four! (DPNs usually come in a set of four; 3 where you put your stitches, 1 for working) I think I'm better off with my own way - using circular needles :D
I almost gave up, but I don't like leaving things halfway done... So finally finished the sock, but it's totally not presentable! Ladders between stitches... but now I get the experience, and learn new term/stitch - the Kitchner Stitch. Well probably a bit of guilt (for being undisciplined?) also contributes to the ladders? Can't expect me to be over-disciplined, eh... :D
