Pineapple and fans tablecloth


Just finished my new tablecloth. I added an extra row of pineapples, then joined them and also added the fans. I needed the added length so that it would hang over the table's edge.

new crocheted doily


I have also made a new doily for my dresser, also rug and pillows for my bed. This doily pattern is in an old booket I had, but now do not know where it's at, lol. I am now working on a new tablecloth for the dining room table. The old one is worn out and has far too many holes.

Sewing for my kitchen

I have been sewing for my kitchen, made new curtains for both the door and window, apron, and plastic bag holder to match them. Didn't have a pattern, the darn things cost way to much, so I just take measurements and then made them. The apron and plastic bag holder are in older posts so you can get the pattern links for these free.

Sewing and stuff

It's been raining here, love the rain, clears the air, renews life and just makes everything smell good. I have been busy with job hunting (like half of US), sewing. At the left is a bookmark I made for either my grand daughter or one of my nieces. I am also working on the crochet along starting in April for my list At My House. It's a set of kitchen things, like a rug, dishcloth, towel topper and whatever I can think of. It will be posted over a couple of months.

Green Ski Hat

A friend has asked me to design an alien ski hat and scarf for her daughter's birthday. I had a lot of fun doing this one, and it turned out really cute. Now on to the scarf. It will look like this same design, same colors, but will have a pocket in the back of the design.

Valentine's Day

This is what the grand kids and my nieces are getting for Valentine's Day, there is a pocket in the back so I can put anything I want too in it. I can make them with different sayings like Love, Best Friends, but this one is my favorite. Or I can just make coasters out of them.

Love to sew


As I said, love to sew and these are a few of the things I have been busy with the last couple of days, one will be banners for my grandkids for xmas, lol, yes, xmas, and other holidays. I start early, it's cheaper to sew, knit or crochet them something than for me to buy.
