My EAT sign turned into ATE

You know that I can't take great pics so thanks to my son's long time love and mother of my grand daughter, Lacey who took these for me

Again, this is for my friends who have more heart than talent. These are sayings from the scrapbook sections The result:

This was easy and not so expensive. Just an idea.

The Champagne Social-ist: It's Cup Match in Bermuda

The Champagne Social-ist: It's Cup Match in Bermuda:  Get ready because the countdown has begun for the most festive, fun, and entertaining two-day holiday you’ll ever experience in Bermuda. L...



I just love the look of tatting but I am not as ambidextrous as I would like to be so I am practicing with Maria Papia and needle tatting on youtube. I just purchased a shuttle and when I get home I am going to try to make something (anything).

I love the colors.

T-shirt Yarn Ideas

You can now buy T-shirt yarn but if you go onto Youtube, you will find videos that will explain how to cut a t-shirt for yarn. I did it and therefore it isn't difficult. So if you have some old t-shirt shirts or dresses. Get cutting.

If not: here are some T-shirt Yarns.

I have found them at Michael's Craft Stores and Pat Catan Craft Stores. I am sure that they are everywhere but what do you do with them? Well, I am glad that you asked. Here are some ideas.

It's Almost Fall

It is sort of cold here in Ohio today. Thinking that it's almost fall and I love Fall. Fall has perfect weather, warm during the day and cool at night. Perfect sleeping weather. I must admit that I would never decorate with the colors orange and brown (the colors of the Brown-Go Browns). But... here are some ideas.

Isn't this great. I want to do a pumpkin tree. Even the planter has a scarecrow on it.
 To see more of this tree go to Country Creations by Denise.

Crafty weekend con'td.

These are the second group of photos that my friend Lacey took for me.
Aren't they great.
You can see that I glittered some of the pine cones to give the wreath light.

Christmas in July, the best of Pinterest.

Santa ornaments

I loved these. follow this link for the free pattern.

I used them as ornament and then with glitter glue I added names of my children and grandchildren to hang on my tree. Here are some other ideas for you. All at the same website.

Aren't these cute?

I love this but have no pattern. I tried to make my own pattern but I hope that in time someone will publish one. If you hear of one let me know.

I am thinking about making these for Christmas.


Obviously these aren't my creations. Please go to my Pinterest page. 
Again follow the link for these and more crochet ideas.

Learn Crochet Drop Stitich

Well can you imagine a scarf in this stitch. 
I understand that this sweater is very easy to make, the machinists of the sweater that is. The stitch is another matter. I suggest that you practice this stitch a lot before you tackle the sweater. Just follow this link to Annie's Attic.

Kim is a great teacher and has several videos out.
