This past week I have been working with some other kinds of needles. A beading needle:
I completed the beaded fringe on my Thundercloud cowl which needs to be blocked, but now looks like this:
A sewing needle:
I am making a "Babushka Doll Keyring" from a little kit that came in a sort of large paper seed packet...
attached to the front cover of my Mollie Makes, Issue 11.
I learned of this magazine in an unusual way (explanation to follow at a later date). It is mostly a sewing magazine with other needlework (sometimes including knitting) and decorating and all things crafty. It is very pretty to look at -- so very full of color and pattern. I just might subscribe to it. (It is published in the UK and may be found in the US at large magazine outlets such as Barnes & Noble).
If you are as old as I, and grew up with all kinds of needlework being done around you, you may remember McCall's Needlework and Craft. I loved that magazine. Mollie Makes reminds me very much of a time in my life when I was constantly making little things (most involving needles) and reading needlework and craft magazines from cover to cover.
