We're at it again...

When I was young I shared a bedroom with my big sis Kathy and one thing was a constant frustration to her. I loved to re-arrange the furniture. I remember her coming home late at night and trying to be quiet going to bed and bumping into the furniture because I had totally switched things around in our room. Well, things never really change do they? Holly and I and all the gals at the store have been busy switching things up. We've been moving things around, and around, and around, freshened up the walls with a sunny new color (thanks Holly and Tyler) and had a lot of fun giving Pine Needles a new fresh look for spring. Stop in and let us know what you think. I'll post some pictures after we finish putting it all back together tomorrow morning.
And did I fail to mention, Saturday's Queen of Hearts event was a great success. Bouquets of fabric corsages were made and worn to the delight of all the Pine Needles Royalty (that's you ladies!) At 8:00 pm the store was packed with royal subjects waiting to see if they would win one of the 20 $20 gift certificates we gave away. We had one loyal customer who had been in so many times in the past week that her name was drawn 3 times for a total of $60 in Pine Needles gift certificates! Congratulations to all our winners who saw that it really does pay to shop often at Pine Needles!

40-45 green fabric scraps

thread for making yo yo's

Fabri-Tac permanent adhesive

Styrofoam ball (mine measured 4" across or 12" around)

approx 35 pink buttons

clay pot


Using green fabric scraps make 40 - 45 yo yo's

(this is a GREAT mindless project to do while watching your favorite movie or TV show!)


Using Fabri-Tac glue yo yo's around the mid line of the Styrofoam ball.

Continue gluing yo yo's above this row until the entire top of the ball is covered with yo yo's.


Glue assorted buttons in center of some of most of the yo yo's


Place a thick line of Fabri-Tac on Styrofoam ball below line of yo yo's and place in pot.

Tie ribbon around pot. Put a pin through center of bow going into the Styrofoam ball to hold ribbon in place. ENJOY!
