This is a baby afghan I knitted for a woman in my church. They took him at about 4-1/2 months into the pregnancy and he weighed 1 lb. 5 oz. about three weeks ago. He is gaining weight and improving slowly. Since I'm sure I won't be seeing her for a w
I thought I would share my three little tooth fairies that I have made for my dentist's new office. I made one of them for her before and she liked it so much she took it home and hung it in her bedroom! The designs are from Designs by Sick. Thanks fo
I made this for my girlfriend who is a member of her local red hatters. The design is from Stitch-a-Half. I added a narrow purple ribbon through the eyelets right after I took this picture.
I have decided that my New Year's resolution is to try to stop saying I will do something about exercise and just go ahead and do it. To this end, I have decided to take a yoga for seniors class taught by a 70-yr. old! Never having done any yoga before
This is a mixer cover I made for my sister. She likes roosters and her favorite color is red, so it was a win/win. Hopefully, she will like it. I think it's a little funny, but I like it enough that I'm making another one for a very good friend of mi
This is a tote bag I made for my son's friend. It is a fat quarter bag and I added the pocket with her name on it. Yes, I know the pocket is off center, but it was stitched on with a decorative stitch that would have taken a lot of time to remove, so I
Got diagnosed with strep tonight. With a temp up to 103.8 and all the associated aches and pain, not to mention the sore throat, it's not fun. The doctor said it's going around here in the American northwest, and I'm sure it's all over as well. Com
Does anyone know where I can find a white peony design for a chair seat? The fabric is 14"x14" and the desired size for the embroidery is 8"x8". I've looked and can only find pink and so far, none of them are big enough. I expect it would have to
When I let my dog out earlier, she raced from the door to the fence, chasing a new fledgling robin. When I called her, she immediately came back (isn't it nice when they listen?). What was the best part was when the indignant daddy robin chased her alm
I was really excited to find that I have a robin's nest in one of my cherry trees. Another sign of renewal in spring. No eggs yet, but I will keep checking. Maureen
I wanted to show how beautiful it is in Idaho in the spring (at least in my front yard). These are obviously irises (and lilacs) but I thought it was great that they are all blooming at the same time. Thanks for looking. Maureen
Not trying to be a Bible thumper, but I just got home from seeing "God is Not Dead." It is an amazing movie. Maureen
We not only have about 7" of snow on the ground here in north Idaho, but have a temperature of 1 degree with a wind chill that makes it feel like -19! And he high tomorrow is supposed to be 12. Brr!
I wanted to wish all a Happy New Year. You have all been supportive of me when I needed it. Personally, I am hoping for a better year in 2014, since not only did I lose my husband, but my brother's wife passed away on Christmas Eve. Needless to say, i
A while back I put a note here that told of the crocheted beds I made for the local Humane Society. My niece works there, and let me know that both the workers AND the cats love them. I guess I will continue to make more. Thanks. Maureen
