Sometimes the strangest things come up in conversation. Yesterday we had lunch with friends and for some reason we talked about boiling eggs and they trotted out a little gadget called an 'egg piercer'. We'd never heard of such a thing! Evidently this little thing pierces a tiny hole in the shell (prior to putting in the water) and helps the egg not to crack while cooking. It also helps with peeling the eggs once they're cooked. Who knew? That led me to look it up online and here it is...
You place the end of the egg onto this and push it down so that the little needle pokes a hole. As I said....who knew?
Yesterday I only managed to create one seam on my Courtship project and here it is...
This one was created using all straight stitches, with the addition of a flower sequin (held by a bead) in the center.
If you are able to embiggen the stitching picture, can you see where/how I worked around another connecting seam?
Now for a couple mumblings...
- THIS is an absolutely great stash buster for yarn! And so is THIS.
- I found this handy chart online HERE. They also have a number of other useful charts that you can see while you're there.

- I can see kids having such fun with THIS!! Fun to create too.
