Yellow and Blue and What to do

Happy Yellow and Blue Monday.
Here is some not so mellow yellow for you.
It is a page out of a very old Good Housekeeping.
(and see the blue down in the corner?)

And here is a little blue vignette.
see that ball on the right?
Here is a close up.
Maybe made of wood. Not sure.
But very cool.
It is larger than a croquet ball.
Anyone know what it is?

And please tell me what candlewick yarn is.
It sounds familiar, but cannot remember what it is.

This is Jan.
She came to have Tea & Treats with her friends
Linda, (on left) and Marilyn, for her birthday.
Very fun!!
I'm seein' some blues and yellows in these pictures, too.

OK. Here is my "What to do".
I got a whole box of these watch crystals, bands, etc.
I have too many projects, and no inspiration for these.
Anyone have some inspiring pictures?
or, I will just let you have them for
shipping costs + $1.00 to drive to P.O.
There are bout 60 here in this picture.
Flat rate box is $5.00. That is only .10 a piece.
Let me know if interested.
I'm guessing there are bout 200 all together.
Not sure how many will fit in those flat rate boxes.
The more you get in there, the cheaper they will be.

Hope someone is inspired to do something with them

blessings on you Monday.

Hi Barb, didn't make it over last week for those chestnuts, but will make it a point this week! If you still have those watch parts, I would love them. Let me know.

Candlewick was a type of embroidery with French knots

Such lovely pictures. Love the blue ball. Sorry can't use any watch parts. Have a great blue Monday.

Candlewick yarn is for making french knot designs on matching fabrics. You iron on a dot pattern and then put knots on every dot.
