The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for "A Chick with an Easter Egg".
Clue: You will find it in the Pencil Cup patterns!
I am now using images that are in the free Paper Bead Generator for the daily Scavenger Hunt Items.
The daily scavenger hunt item can only be found for one day.
I no longer keep them available to find for the whole month.
The instant prize could be either a discount or a download of something that is free for today only.
This pattern is always a free pattern.
This egg, even though it is made of yarn, could be easily made of thread instead. It uses a technique I recently learned how to do, Tapestry Crochet. A method of crocheting 2 colors at a time, carrying one color along as you work the other color.
Every day, from now on, I will post either a members only pattern or a free pattern. It will say whether it is free or not. Once a week, I will offer 1 paid members pattern per week. It will be on Sunday Each Week. This is so I can feature current holiday related patterns, whether they are free or not.
Desk Top Caddy is Back!
I have added a new section to the site! Other Projects! So far there is only two projects in there. The projects that will be in this section will be unrelated to crochet and paper bead making. I plan to add more random projects as time goes by. Most of them, in the future will be for paid members but the projects that existed before on Paper Bead Crafts and the JPF Crochet Club, that were not related, will be free if they were free to begin with.

My Plans for 2020Points accounts will be coming back. Not sure when, when I figure out how it will work, I will let you know. Right now, all I know is there will be 2 or 3 levels of points account members and the levels will be based on how many points are earned. Redeeming points will not be included, at first, just earning points for level access. It may take weeks to figure it all out. Anyone who paid or pays for membership will automatically be at the Gold level and have access to everything without having to earn points over time. I will post details later and as I figure out how it's all going to work. It will be way different from the old system. It will not work the same. Everyone will start at the lowest level except those who have ever paid for lifetime membership or pays for membership in the future. Future members who pay the 12 monthly payments plan, will lose their Gold status if they cancel their monthly payments before the monthly payments end on their own after 12 payments.
Safe Paint Brushes
If you do a lot of painting. Store your skinny brushes in drinking straws to protect them.
Dress up a bandanna with a couple of rows of crochet edging for a different more feminine look to the old standard bandanna on the head thing.
