Finally, some of the promised pictures of Olivia’s Butterfly I wrote about just before Christmas. I mentioned I made one for my DD in Red Heart’s Plush Yarn, and then I made her a scarf with the butterfly design on each end as well. The pictures are not the greatest, and she’s not such a willing model any more – but here they are none the less!

 

Valentine’s Day Crochet! January 4, 2011

Still working through my stash, which has admittedly grown some. Just a little…

This year, I will be making slippers for Valentine’s Day. I’d also like to get a few more pairs worked up for guests. That way, I¬†won’t feel so bad when we have them removing their shoes at the door. It also gives me the oppertunity to try several patterns just for the fun of it.

For DD I found this pair of slippers with a cuff. I’m going to make hers in the black, and use the last of the varigated yarn that I made the tam and shrug with, for the cuff. When I make S.S’s I will add the hearts into the cuff. I’m thinking a yellow cuff with purple hearts – her favorite colors.

For the guys, I found this pattern for Moccasin style slippers. I will post pictures as I complete them, and let you know how the patterns work up.

 

Ice Princess Necklace – Finished November 25, 2009

I really must confess, I am liking these posts that end with “Finished”, I’m liking it a lot ūüôā The Ice Princess Necklace is complete. It didn’t take long either! Once again, I am sorry about the crappy picture. The necklace wouldn’t even fit around the lamp shade – and it’s too small for me or my DD to model…it’s for my sister for Christmas – and it fits her. I know, because she tried it on for the button placement for the closure. Now, I have to make one for DD – but she wants a skull or something like that, not a snowflake.

I’m really amazed, and grateful beyond words to all the people who share their designing talents so freely with us. To be able to make such nice things for my family and friends as gifts for what ever occasion¬†it may be for – or for no occasion at all is a gift given to me by strangers who have no idea what it means to me. To know, I can give something that someone will be able to love and would actually want to use is a such a beautiful thing, I can’t properly express it.

To those of you who I am speaking to and of РI can only say Thank You. 

 Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be able to give so freely and happily to those I love, and even to those I may never meet (through charities) items that will bring  a smile, some joy, or some comfort and warmth this holiday season and beyond. I truly hope you shall receive the same abundance in blessings as you have shared.

 I completed the Vine on a Fence Scarf from Nathalie over at  Gnats On the Windshield. For something so pretty, it was so easy to make. Plus, I used up more of my stash. The pictures I have really do not do it justice at all.
