  19. Thank you iamrushmore! I used to shop yard sales every weekend and you wouldn't believe my accumulation. It's ridiculous! But, I must say that I'm glad I did it back when, because now...where I live in Colombia...there ain't no such thing as a yard sale. :(

  22. Thank you Lynn! I'll NEVER tell my secret of how I stacked them. NEVER.

  23. My brain is so focused on paper, that at first I thought "stack of metallic papers." It took about 15 seconds for my perspective to shift! Thanks for the fun visual and great photograph.

    ReplyDelete
  24. LOL! Thanks quinncreative! Don't feel bad, AFTER I POSTED these pictures, I realized...in a way...this isn't a stack AT ALL. HAHAHA!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am as intrigued by HOW you took the photo, as the photo it's self! Fascinating collection and photo!

  53. Thanks Linda! :) I've been told I'm different for most of my life. Usually in a good way. I think. Maybe.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Absolutely the most stunning stacks! Very clever and imaginative. I've inherited all my mother's and grandmother's knitting needles and crochet hooks and I love looking at them (and I don't knit either) but now you've inspired me to consider some kind of art work with them. Maybe I could incorporate them into my assemblage work. Thanks for visiting my stacks. This is fun, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thank you Carol! None of my ancestors were knitters so I've picked all of these up at yard sales hoping that one of these days, I'll use them! I'd love to see your needles in your assemblage! And YES! this has been lots of fun.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I would have never thought about knitting needles, they look so gorgeous! Guess that is what creativity is all about! "thanx" for commenting on my blog also!!

  57. thank you NM Creatrix! It was the first thing that popped into my head...but Don'T ask me why?!? And...YW. :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. That's amazing. I looked at the first photo, and the second, and third - each time thinking I was looking at books and it wasn't until you said " And I don't even knit" that I realized they were knitting needles. I bow down to your outstanding creativity! Bravo!

    ReplyDelete
  59. This is the most original and creative stack I have seen! I'm totally impressed.

    ReplyDelete
  60. The sweaters you could knit with these... but I would probably be like you: just arrange them and enjoy the 'stack' picture! Fabulous!!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Wow! Very artful...love your stack!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Wow - I had to take a closer look at the photos to see that they were indeed knitting needles! Very unique and fun interpretation of Seth's "stacks" challenge :).

  71. Hi hun, I love your stacks. I've come back to this post a couple of times wondering whether to enter this after seeing it here & then about 10 of my art/idea/doodle journals I have stacked on my trucks. I looked at them a few weeks ago thinking how 'arty' they look and I should pic them, but alas never got around. Thanks for sharing, and coming over to say hi, please do let me know if you make some recycled journals hugs jenny x
