Michele,

What do you use for cutting the bone and antler? I have a small set of antlers that, believe it or not, I found buried in our horses' dry lot. One day I looked down and saw the nubs of the tips of the horns sticking out and kept kicking the dirt aside until I found the rest of them. Weird because it looks like they had been sawed off at the base. Not sure how long they were there before erosion brought them to the surface.

3 yarn Scarf for DIL for Christmas. For some reason my close-up view won't post. It shows the inner colors which are reds, blues, and greens. It looks so much prettier close up.



My youngest son asked me if I wanted this storage system he was going to get rid of
and I said "YES!" so fast and loudly I thought I was going to scare him half to death,
but I knew immediately what I was going to do with it! It looks like I could open
my own Yarn Store huh? LOL

Trish...your grunge Rose is gorgeous!

I use either my scroll saw or a hand saw with fine teeth to cut the deer antlers with...the scroll saw is tricky cause of the raised areas of the antlers but I do it real slow...with the handsaw I don't have to worry about that just getting a good grip while i saw so it doesn't move on me...the antlers aren't hard to cut even though you would think they would be....just take your time while doing it & wear a mask if you can...they are stinky & the dust is bad for you.....once cut set them out in the sun to really dry & kill off any germs they may have...You can dip them in white vinegar water before you set them out in the sun...oh & drill the button holes also before drying them so you don't have to repeat that set again later...I don't dye my antler buttons but alot of times I will soak my bones in expresso strength coffee for a week in the frig then set them out in the sun for a few days to really dry...the white bones don't look as pretty when I use them on my old fashioned clothes I make.....Michele'

PeggyAnn-
For close-up picture change the preference on your camera to "macro" setting. Also play with the flash. If you take the picture outside it will be better.

Grace...adorable aprons!

Annie...I don't think smart phone camera's are that complex. LOL
I never use a real camera anymore. I got a good close-up picture
but for some reason it would not upload on the board. I was thinking
maybe it was too large even though I went back and changed the setting
to small. Still wouldn't load on MJF Board. Maybe tomorrow...who knows!

Ooohh Trish, that is an excellent paper rose! How do you do that?

PeggyAnn, what a pretty furry scarf!! Your organizer is perfect for yarn. I've been struggling with ways to organize mine too.

Tammy you are a stitching machine!! Your needle must fly with all of the projects you do and they are all gorgeous. That sampler is awesome.

Michele, thanks for the info about making the buttons. I sure wish I could turn those antlers we have into buttons. That would be so cool.

Grace, are those little girl aprons too? How darling!! The fabric choices are perfect too.

I'm working on my niece's quilt for Christmas...that's the main one I have to get done! I think it will be lovely once I get it done...but I gotta get it done!

Love to see all the projects we are working on, we are a crafty bunch

I finished my *wrap* Started Thursday, finished yesterday. The pattern was all wrong so had to figure it all out myself. Not so nice to have to alter a pattern you buy in a book but alas....
