Today's workshop went well.  Diana Taylor came and showed us how to make 'Ficklesticks' and how to use them. 

The first thing I made was a daisy ring, then I made a matching pin.

Then after I got home this afternoon, I made another flower type pin.

It seems I was in a floral frame of mind today.

I'm thinking the pins will look cute as embellishments on tote bags and such.  I see using the 'Ficklesticks' as
embellishment for wall hangings too.  There are a lot ways to use 'Fickelsticks'.
If you would like to find out more about 'Ficklesticks' go to , you can also find them on Facebook.  Just search Ficklesticks Fabric Jewels.


Busy Day indeed!

Later in the afternoon, we took off for Fort Smith.  My daughter needed a new pair of jeans.  She wears a size 1.   Do you know how hard it is to find a size 1 in the correct length?!   After three stores, we finally found her some jeans and believe it or not, we found them on sale for $12.00.  That in itself was amazing to me.  :)

Also found a cute blouse for myself.  :)
