Thank you Sharon . I do this all the time, in fact you can make a nice gift pin for a knitter friend..... you knit some stiches for a certain length ,[ i even make tiny socks and sweaters!!] than cut your thread enough that you can roll up a tiny wool ball. glue the stiches to the tooth pick fold the two picks and push them into the wool ball , add a safety pin ,,,,Woilla you have a cute pin ... mirjam

I remember Jane doing that for a mouse! She used to make mice from knitting machine wool cones (about 9 inches high) dress them and make them "do" things - one was a sort of granny mouse, complete with lacey mobcap and pinny, and doing some knitting. She made the pins from cocktail sticks/toothpicks and beads, and of course did the knitting for them!
I thought of those mice only this morning when I took a huge sack of Shetland wool on cones into the British Heart Foundation charity shop. We`ve been having a clearout, and took them loads of books, too. It`s made a lot of space getting rid of books we know we`ll never read again.

ALL of my stitching is like that. I don't "do" pictures. I embroider decorations on table and bed linens, cushion covers and (rarely) clothing ............ and I don't ever do crosstitch except as an occasional filling stitch in a surface embroidery project.

yes it does. 'at bruge' means 'to use'. If you can say 'r=F8dgr=F8d med fl=F8de' (red porridge with cream) you can say anything danish. :-P

cool. So you are in Holland? We are not very far off then. You know the Olsen Banden? If I were to choose a Danish film to show a foreigner it would be one of them. Real classics (Especially the one when they go under the national concert hall)

I live in the US, in Kansas City, Missouri. My father found European family through geneaological research, and we have visited each other and communicated off and on for the past 25 years. My father also lived in Holland for 2-1/2 years in the early 60s. He tried to teach me Dutch when I was very young, but it didn't take.
I usually go by Lizard Gumbo here, but I forgot to change my nick on the last post.

Well if you ever want to visit Denmark let me know. I live just outside of Copenhagen, and very rarely get the chance to meet other stitchers :-P
