Time, Yarn and Pinterest...in that order!


Just having a little fun here and stopping in to show you some of my old watch parts. My husbands' uncle used to fix watches as a hobby and somehow we ended up with all his supplies.

I laid them out and took some pictures. Click on them and print them off. Maybe you can use them.

Some real strange ones in with these....look at the one below. Kind of unique! 

I find them interesting...now to incorporate them into a project! 

I'm still crocheting. Here's what I'm working on. Care to guess what kind of hat it's going to be?

Show ya later on my FB page!

Pin Cushion anyone? 
The weather's been hot enough here to warrant the happiness of this little cactus!

Are you following me on Pinterest? Here's what I've been pinning lately:

Onto Mixed Media  (Color of your Dreams canvas by Artful Evidence)
Onto Craft Tutorials (Textured Fairy Wings)
Onto Craft Tutorials (Skin Colors with Copics tutorial)
Onto Craft Ideas I Love  (Lace Terra Cotta Pots)
Onto Masculine Cards   (Masculine Cards and Mini Albums using Tim Holtz Dies)
Onto Mini Albums  (Camera Mini Album)

Phew....time to move into the room with the air conditioner! Have a happy day everyone!


  1. Oh you are soooo lucky to have all those watch parts! I saved the pictures as paper in case I may need it some time so TFS. I'm guessing ladybug on the hat. OOOOOOOhhhh a cactus! I totally saw a voodoo doll LOL
