Open House

My girlfriend turned 90 this month and she is having an open house. I made a Lavender pillow with my crocheted lady attached. The smell of lavender is suppose to be calming and the color is a favorite. I will see her this afternoon. Blessings, Janet

Merry Christmas

It was a good day. I talked with with my sister and daddy in IL and had dinner with one of my daughters and grandson. Two more gals are on the sewing board and a new lavender dress was crocheted for the Barbie - she also now has crocheted underwear - don't know how that slipped by me.

New Gal in Town looking for Fun

Ok, so she was started before Halloween.  She has had patience in waiting for her coat to be done (she knew it would turn cold).  Now she is ready (and deserving) for some Fun time. What do you suggest? Blessings, Janet

New Project

I found a way to put a picture on a hot pad without messing up the picture.  The hot pad is more than usable and should not disturb the picture. The tree is on everyday that I don't have to do errands. It is enjoyable.  The Village is in the dining room and the presents are being made in the sewing room. Pictures are taken in the bedroom.  Every room is joyous. Oh, forgot, the kitchen smells of good treats.  My bloggers have come forth with some delicious dishes.  I am looking forward to breakfast with my girlfriend on Christmas eve morning.
Blessings, Janet

Crochet Time

I have completed 6 little dresses, 3 parties and the passing of a good friend's husband. He happened to be born on Christmas day.  It is a shock and so hurtful.  The 4 of us were the best of friends even though they moved from So. FL.  They were married on the Beach at the hotel where Steve and I had our first New Year's Eve together. Steve (left) passed 6 years ago this December.  Blessings, Janet

Green - Mommy finally dressed me

Hi, Mommy sure took her time.  She had to dress Bleu first because I was drying. But then she had to go to a guild meeting (she took Raelynn and PINK, everybody loved them).  Finally, I have my new green blouse and jumper, YAY! You should visit mommy's Etsy place.  If you like us, she can send us to your home :).  I Love You. GREEN

My Daughter had a date with her Hubby

I am so proud of her. She has lost weight and looks terrific.  They make a very handsome couple. Looks like they had fun.

Meet Ms. Bleu.  She's been waiting around, while I made the cookies and something for the guild meeting tomorrow.  She was waiting around in her bloomers.  Her blouse and jumper have been made and her socks. She's a cutie.

Changing it up

I put aside the dolls and have made a Sachet and scented pillow. Both are Loralie inspirations. The pillow is small and would fit anywhere.  Both have the scent of lavender.  I love the creativity of all the projects.  Blessings,

Here comes the boyfriend

I certainly didn't know boys were glued to mama.  He follows me everywhere.  I finally got him done. He has creases in his pants, an undershirt, a tie, a tie pin and a fly.  He will also be going up on ebay (JKW should find me).  Pretty good work for breaking my little toe. I have to stop once in awhile and get it up in the air, but have managed to make the 3 dolls so far.   Blessings,   Janet
