About Me

My Photo

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!

Heart to Heart Book Marker

 This was an afterthought...but I still wanted to share the pattern.  We needed something other than a recipt or a torn piece of paper to hold our place in the evening read...not to mention the school work reads.  So there will be more book markers forth coming.

Adorable. I have got to take a class or something and learn to do more than knit and purl. Thanks for sharing.

I wish I could rewire my brain & I could understand kniting everyone is making such wonderful items
Beautiful book marker!

Ooooh, SO pretty! A MUCH better way to honour a book than the odds and ends that we end up using.
