The 2 pumpkins, assembled.
More pumpkins, the short one's design was found at the Perler Bead website, here. tall one is my adaptation, sized to stack on top if I want to.
Yes, they really are orange. I have no idea why those translucent ones don't come out correctly. Frustrating, but at least you get the designs.

These will be 3D Trees, strung together and free to swing. The color is off again, sorry;the scanner just doesn't get the rust and orange right.

The past week or so, we've been playing with Perler Beads. (Called Hama, in some places.)
My camera wouldn't get them in focus, so I scanned them. Some of the colors faded, but you can still see the designs.
My daughter created the wreath, tree, and pink striped candy cane heart; I made the pink and green heart.

I just figured out how to add labels to my posts!
Now pictures should show up when people search for the words.
I know, I know - simple, huh? (rolling eyes)
Well I never claimed to be computer savvy. Leave an old lady alone with her Perler beads. sob!

Actually, Perler bead ornaments are what I'm working on now. Pictures as soon as I can get the silly camera batteries charged.
I hate this camera.

More in progress. I wound up with 5 sets of 7 rainbows, 35 total.
Sad... It turns out we only have 13 people in the ornament exchange... Do you think I could get away with giving them 3?
These Korean clothes pin dolls were only the start. I wound up buying more clothespins.

120 more clothespins.

There are 35 Korean clothespin dolls, 40 dolls with 1920's hair and faces, a bunch of wild and crazy dolls from the 1960s, and there are still more pins! pant, pant
I sort of got carried away.
