Oh, and I'm still alive. Thanks to every one of you who have contacted me with well-wishes and possible diagnoses... you guys are the best people in the world and I'm going to let everyone know. I'm still working on returning email, so hang in there if you've emailed me.
So, I was wanting to craft something while still laying down. This is how a tired crafter gets anything done, apparently. Anyhoo, I grabbed a styrofoam cone, some green yarn, pretty beads and a silver star pick that I bought at Jo-Ann's for $1. I love $1.
Then, whilst lying down and watching some sort of trash on television, I wrapped the yarn neatly around the cone.
Then, I kept wrapping the yarn around the cone, but all haphazardly. See, doing it this way shows the world what a rebel you are.
So, when that's done, I unwrapped more yarn and left it to the side. I don't know how much more, maybe a few feet... just enough for the next step.
I grabbed myself a needle and threaded the end of the yarn... then I threaded a whole mess of beads.
When I had a lot of beads on the yarn, I continued wrapping it around the tree, adding a bead or two as I went. Before long, my tree was beaded.
My little silver star at the top finished the whole thing. And I didn't even have to stand up.
