Here is something a little different...this is a sketch of John Wayne I made a good while back, I feel like I'm getting the sketching bug again!
Oooh and we have puppies again!!! I will post pics of them real soon!! I just love puppies all shiny and new!!!!! My doggie had only 4 puppies this time but 1 was a still birth. The other 3 are thriving...she is such a wonderful mommy!!!

Tooth Fairy Fabric Wall Hanging

I made this adorable wall art for the little tyke's room, it's there for when the child is ready to hand over a tooth to the Tooth Fairy. Just tuck the child's tooth into the little pocket and hang over their bed and wait for the Tooth Fairy to magically stop by. Made out of fabric, batting and embellishments, these were easy and fun to make, and I am ready to send one to each of my grandkids!!♥

The instructions for this project was from the book "Aleene's Angels Made Easy" (Oxmoor House) which I bought many years ago, the wonderful designs are by Heidi Borchers.

It is jam packed with angel projects, and I love angels. I highly recommend it. I am not sure if it is still in print. I love it!!♥

I crocheted this extra large tote in turquoise a while back, I stuff my yarn and current crochet project in it and take it with me to appointments that I know I will be sitting for a while....really helps pass the time. I've gotten lots of compliments on it. I love it!!♥

Hi, it's been a little while since I last blogged.....my digital camera died and I could not take any pictures of anything I've made, but I recently borrowed my son's camera and now I am able to post some pics!!!! Yay!!!!!
Here are some small crochet tote bags I made for my adorable granddaughters, 4 year old Emily and 3 year old Mia, one is in Camouflage colors and the other two are a lot more colorful! It only took me a couple of days to complete them. I love adding embellishments like those colorful beads. They are easy and quick! I love to crochet and I try to teach anyone that wants to learn around here!!
