I had to add one more picture of Hunter's birthday (from those that Susie put on). I like this one of him licking frosting off the car. He got training wheels for his new bike yesterday and Jeff came over in the evening while Susie went to a decorating party. He rode that bike for about an hour and a half. Don't know how his little legs could pump the pedals that long.

Felted Bag

One of the friends in California that Carissa and Ben know had seen my bag when we were down there. It's the same pattern as this only a different color. She asked me to make her one and she would give me a picture in return. She is a well-known artist (in California). So here is the lovely picture she sent, which I am going to get matted and framed.

Cute Thrift Store Book

Here is a cute thrift store book that I got for Hunter. A couple of the tools are missing, but Tim and I are making them... Why? 'Cause it's fun!


Here is Step #2 of my felted slippers. Yes, they look ugly now. I only have one done so it will be a little while before I post a picture of the finished product.

Knitted Slippers

Here are some slippers I started yesterday. The pattern requires thinking, which is probably good for my brain! Very fun, though.

One picture

Here are the four of us girls. We have been busy looking at assisted living places. Some are very nice. I asked the lady at the one that was very nice at what age their youngest resident was - she said 54 - and I am tempted to take dad and move in! Their little "bistro" cafe is so cute where you can buy 1/2 sandwich for lunch for $2.50. I'll put some up on Picasa soon. We didn't take very many, though.

Sewing Stuff again

Here's my latest purchase - these labels are woven - and I figured they would work for either knitting or sewing.

I am going to make a DRESS - I have noticed on sewing blogs that dresses are one of the most popular things that ladies are sewing now. I thought I would use this McCalls pattern - might add a slight flare on the bottom. The fabric is not exactly what I wanted - it's so hard to find just the right fabric. it's thin and has to be lined. Just a little more work, but I am excited about starting it.

Garage Sale and Sewing Project

Here's my garage sale find of the morning (the flowers, not the blouse). I finished up the hand sewing on the blouse this morning. It's some fabric I got at the expo.
