Crocheted Shell Bookmark

This is the cutest bookmark.  I found the pattern at Armina's Ami-nals and gave it a try.  It was really easy.  I didn't have to rip out any stitches (which is unheard of for me) AND I didn't have to run to Kadie (of Seven Alive) for troubleshooting.


I tried to use a bunch of my jewelry beads, but most of them had tiny holes and I wasn't able to get the yarn through.  These were the only beads that were workable, and look how great they ended up looking.  I got lucky.  :)



I think that I'm going to need more yarn so I can do a bunch of little Christmas stocking stuffers.  Is it too soon to talk about Christmas?  I guess not if you're making gifts, right!


Yikes, she looks intense, huh.  

This is where I'm (we're? do I include her?) partying:

How cute! It's not too early to start thinking about Christmas. I've been picking up a few things when I'm out and putting them back for presents. Not that I'm going to remember where I put them in December, but at least I've started!

Another talent I didn't know about. I'd love to learn to crochet. My grandmother made wonderful things. Hey...you should enter the Canadian Circle of Moms Top 25 blog contest. I just saw it on somebody's sidebar. I'd vote for you every day. :o)

I so applaud your needlework. Love the beads. I think I mentioned that my mom and grandmother were very talented in this area. I'm more of a hammer and nail kinda gal.

That would be a perfect gift for my mother for Christmas! We are drawing names this year and are keeping the gifts under $20... this, with a new book for her, would be perfect!

I found you at the Happy Hour link party, I'm your newest follower!
