Happy Easter! And other thoughts.


Happy Easter to all!

So sorry I’ve neglected this site.  Will try to get better about it these days.

I’ve a new job and absolutely love it!

I’ve finished three projects thus far this year.  JJ’s hat, a smock dress for Sami, and a tied fleece blanket for Sami.IMG_20150405_102626


(Sorry, I don’t have a photo of JJ’s hat or Sami’s fleece blanket as of yet)

JJ’s hat is an orange crocheted hat that I made with no pattern.  It used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn in Pumpkin. Hope to make more for sell on my Etsy site.
Sami’s dress is made out of a mock smock fabric from JoAnn Fabric and ribbon I found in my drawer.
Sami’s fleece blanket was made out of blizzard fleece, also from JoAnn Fabric. Made a matching smaller version for her baby doll.

That’s all for now.  Time for some Star Trek and bed as there is work/school in the morning.


Garage Sale = Small Success!


We had a small garage sale yesterday.  Not much foot traffic, but we still came out with $41 from the sales.  I wanted to do the sale a few weeks ago, but with hubby sick, I had to wait until I had other help lined up for the kiddos.

My next project? Taking photos of the jewelry and arts/crafts to post onto Etsy.  I hope to have those done by the end of next month. Hopefully I can take a few photos and post a some each week.  We’ll see.  Other items leftover from the garage sale will be donated this weekend.
