About Me

I am a work from home, home schooling Mom who loves her Kids...yep, I think my kids are great. You will find me: Knitting, cross stitch, embroidery and working with felt are things I enjoy for fun. I also love to decorate and find deep satisfaction in decorating my home with great finds and my handmade items.  Gardening is one of my great loves, it like decorating outside!

Knitted Dolls Clothes

Even the Dolls get gifts around here.
I made this for Trinitys doll. It turned out so cute. The pants are too small so I am making a new pair. But the top has a nice flair at the bottom and at the sleeves. Then I embroidered flowers around the bottom, cuffs and neck line. And crochet some pink lace along the edge. I also lined the bottom with purple polka dot ribbon to give it some weight to make it lay nice and to hide the not so pretty back side.
Alaska (the name of her doll) will really be in style with this on.

Moving to Higher Ground

Well the kids have the right idea, find a tree and hang on!

Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile we got caught up in all this flood mess in Georgia. I say it's time to pack it up and move out west.

I here those Colorado Rockies calling me again.Add Image

We had to leave our home for awhile, we lost water and electricity for a few days. Then once we finally figured a way to get out of here...all the roads were blocked. It rained again and there was no way back home. A water spicket was left on and it ran wide open in the bathroom for three days straight! No you really don't want to know what the water bill was. We are now renovating the bathroom and that keeps adding up as well. Though I had a complete stranger give me the rest of her Low's gift card while we were standing in line. It was $35.00 Made my day.
But no matter how high the water gets we can still get higher on life.
And I will post The hat that I knitted for Trinity soon. I am now working on a Dress for her Doll for Christmas. Yes, the dolls get presents too.
