Those whiskers can be used as antennas, as well as legs on foam beetles and ants.

Beaver whiskers? gettin' a little edgy, I think. Or maybe it's just me.

Hit A Super Deal tonight. Went to an auction with my wife and they had a box of thread come up. I bought it for $7.00. In the box were 40 unused spools of Richardson Silk thread in a variety of colors. I am in tiers heaven!!!!

Dryer lint and Christmas tinsel get listed and you draw the line here??
My father-in-law gave me a jar of porcupine quills in a large box of assorted material. For years I couldn't figure out what to do with them, and I eventually got tired of poking myself and tossed the jar. Of course about a week later I read about Marinaro's quil hopper pattern and since have seen lots of examples of the use of these in other patterns. So if you want to know a great use for beaver whiskers,, just throw them away.

I've been keeping an eye out for porcupine on the road side, been wanting to get some to fool around with myself. Did see a couple but even I would not fool with what was left, squished would be an understatement. I'll get some, just a matter of time...
