Hat Pins….

25 Jan

Okay so the Swapping Queen of the year strikes again!  Sam I hope you read this at some point, you are going to learn a little something about me!!!  I am totally obsessive at times!!!

Sam is one of my swapping friends…. actually she is Queen of the swappers in my mind, she talked me into joining her hat pin swap so I have been obsessing over beads all week!  I have been on the look out for some nice beads that I can use to build hat pins for her swap.  What do you think of these?….  Good for a start huh?

Now all I have to do is find the darn pins!!!  This is a nightmare! LOL!!!  I am going to hit every fabric shop and floral store I can find until I find the darn things!  I need a minimum of 2″ pins with or without a pearl on the top.  If anyone local has found any of these can you please let me know where?

    Lisa, you make hat pins all the time, you don’t have any pins? Why for heavens sake didn’t you say something a loooonnnnngggg time ago, I would have sent you some. By the way, those beads are very pretty.

    How about getting cozy with a florist or asking where they get theirs?
