EDITED --- Q: "Love your cats...question, do they ever fight?" A: No, they are compatible. They usually lick each other - nap together - sit together. They share the same food + water dish (tho, Honey Bunny sneaks into the dog's water bowl all the time - I'm not sure why)
This picture is for Karol, who wanted to see my yo-yos. I need 54 small yo-yos to make a small bear. More about yo yos in This Post. I've also made 4 butterfly yo yos, 4 flower yo yos (2 sizes), several hearts, and circle yo yos in 4 sizes. And, yes, I'm going to use them ; )
Since my post about the perle coton boxes,
I had been asked about template(s)
directions & instructions

I'm really not good at explaining
so, I took apart a box
& will try to show how I create boxes
I start with a 4" x 6" card
(index card, card stock, light weight cardboard
Decorate - or leave plain
Cut 4 slits & Fold
Attach label to ends of box -- double sided tape, glue, whatever is on hand
Use Paper punch where you want your ribbons
Ribbon should be 18-19" & secure the perle coton balls in place
Not too tight or they will not roll easily when fiber end is pulled
I use a bodkin & two colors of ribbon
Thread thru the box & perle coton balls
Use 2nd ribbon and repeat on the other side
Bows on the ends over labels
Check out a couple blogs
Karol and Marjorie
They both have posts w/photos
about State Day 2009
Indiana State Day was a success It was hosted by NANI The Co-Chair, Committee, Volunteers, put together quite an event
In addition to the awesome project, each participant was given a stunning beaded scissor fob made by NANI member Carol J
Mine has a very kewl pink flip flop on the end!!!
If you noticed the stamped index card with Autumn pumpkin & leaves theme, they were folded up perle cotton balls inserted and secured with ribbon (the labels attached to ends) Boxes put together by Mel (w/o Blog) I just love the Autumn theme!
These perle coton boxes can be made for two balls or just one
I've made several It keeps them from rolling around and the cats tend to leave them alone!
