Beaded Dragonflies

It’s a cold snowy day today. I’m still waiting on my cotton yarn order to come in and there won’t be any mail today 🙂  I hunted through my box of some tatted pieces I had and I am thinking of Spring. And market bags, more knitting. I’m in the mood or knitting mode and it’s hard to shake once I become obsessive with a project. I did manage to get another bag made with the scraps of cotton yarn I had left.

Now that I found these dragonflies again, I can use them to sew on something for adornment. Or make earrings out of them. I like how they turned out. I went with the flow and didn’t write down a pattern for them. Why I stashed these away, I don’t remember!

I hadn’t been in a very creative zone in the longest time, now I feel like I’m bursting with the desire to create things. Guess I should just let “er” loose! lol

When I went to Joann’s online to order some yarn, I noticed there was a contest for “going green” with a certain brand of blended cotton yarn.(2010) I thought that was so awesome! That surely stirred up the creativity of many crafting artists and what a great cause! It’s what I had been thinking about previously. Help Mother Earth out! Get rid of plastic bags!

If I were to imagine all the knitters out there and crochet’ers, and they all made cotton or some other natural fiber market bags to use and share with others, wow,….that would sure be something. That’s a huge community! Nice thought. 🙂
