Here are the two baby cradle/purses I made for my 3 year old nieces:

I made a couple of Christmas gifts today. First up was a Beard Hat. I've seen them all over the place on line, but didn't ever think about making one. But I was seriously devoid of ideas of what to make for my nephew Lucas. Like a lot of people I am short of funds this year for gift giving, so I decided to make presents, but really what do you do for a 13 year old boy??? Then I remembered these hats. So here is my finished product. I made up the hat by trial and error, but the beard pattern came from JJ Crochet at
I'm very sure that it will look MUCH better on him!

My next project was a super cute headband/ear warmer for my 13 year old niece. I found this free pattern at Sadie's Basket,
These were both great patterns and super easy to work up. I made both of them the same day.

I couldn't get the links to work, so to visit these pages you'll have to copy and paste. Sorry about that.

Yeah! I actually have a finish! Just a little Christmas ornament I picked up stitched on plastic canvas.

No Stitching or Crocheting lately

I've been babysitting for the last two weeks and find it difficult to do anything other than just watch the kids. They are very very very busy. Today I'm sitting for a friend who is attending a funeral. She left her 4 little darlings with me this morning and they have pretty much been bickering ever since. LOL But now they are occupied with a snack so I thought I'd pop off this blog post while I could.

I've been surfing through the various blogs I follow and have entered a drawing over at Victorian Motto Sampler. Nancy does beautiful work.

Hopefully I can get a little something done on any one of my projects when I get the kids to take a little nappy. Right now we are on our 2nd viewing of the day of How To Tame Your Dragon. I love this movie!

Baby Cowboy Booties

I recently started making baby cowboy booties and they are so very very cute!
The brown and green pair are for my grandson Ryan Jr and the pink pair is for my cousins baby. My only problem....getting them in the mail! I have taken 3 orders thus far for newborn sized booties for friends. I love being able to make such wonderful gifts!

I am a terrible blogger

I never seem to remember to do it. And to be honest, I really haven't been stitching very much any way.  However, I did recently get out an old WIP or UFO..whichever you want to call it.  I'm pretty proud of the progress I've made. When I restarted, only the upper part was done.  Now look at it!
