"" KEEP OUT"" (from "my" room)!!!

No worries, none is upset!!! You know, I have two boys.....two brothers......brotherhood.....do you know what I mean??? Well, it happens that the "teen" one wishes with all his heart to not have his little brother in his own kingdom, so.... I came out with a simple idea!!!

It all started with some yarn and a pair of knitting needles....





and the thing on the needles turned out to be a little rectangle (21 stitches, moss stitch, 30 rows, needles #5!!)...



From the sofa, where I was sitting & knitting, I saw my little collection of embroidery loops and the idea popped in my mind...


So, I collected the biggest one, some red and white felt from my stash, needles, scissors, cotton threads and a pencil...




...and after some backstitching (and a brief fight with the loop...!!)....


...I cut a skull with his crossbones from a piece of black felt...



I had to choose some right ribbons for the guy, so...B&W was the only choice, I suppose...


With the help of a crafty glue, I fixed the chosen one along the border of the loop...




I knotted (back top) and pinned (back bottom) some black ric rac to let hang the pirate flag (no prisoners...)



Now you can see it hanging on the door of my teen....




....you know, even the little one wants one sign like this for his room door: revenge, maybe??...Ahoy, Captain!!!

Beauty is where you find it #33

On the market, this is what Nic is looking for this week....
Well, in JK there are not weekly street markets as in Italy or in Europe, but you can find some local daily markets (one day I'll show you the one close to my house..), or, more often, something like these....
