Creative idea: Yarn Mobile


Round and easy

If you are like me, and pretty yarns and fabrics appeal to you, but you don't like knitting, this might be a fun project to try. A mobile in your favorite colors of various baubles, some hollow, some full. You could use almost anything round, just as long as it's not too heavy. Or make your own balls, by putting yarn soaked in glue around a ballon wit a greasy surface, similar like you'd make paper maché. You let the yarn dry, and then remove the balloon. Messy, but fun!

  8. Dearest, you truly are an artist. You can make the simplest thing look CHIC. Perhaps it is your training in what I perceive to be in modern art....just spectacular! How are you today dear one? Anita
