My week, starting on Sunday, began with one of my small collections, my Kewpies.
I had read a fellow bloggers post where she had ventured into an Antique Shop and saw a few of these darlings. It reminded me of the ones I had stashed away.
Unwrap this and you get...........this.
Sweet little babies. They are packed away because I don't have a cabinet to keep them in.
They are cute, but obviously catchers of dust, which by the way, I seem to collect too.
I always thought they were the perfect addition to a shelf in a nursery.
My littlest one goes well in my printer's box.
On Monday I mailed the package to the winner (Pammy Sue) of my Giveaway.
She left me know she received it this week and said she was happy.
I also whipped together a tissue box cover for my mom.
There was no pattern.
I more or less winged it and was happy with the results.
The flowers designs were taken from one of my pattern books.
I added the tiny yoyos in the centers using a French knot to secure them.
I still need to sew the flowers to the box.
Crocheted slippers, easy peasy.
This is a pattern that has been around a long time.
I copied it from a slipper that my mil had made me years ago.
There are 4 granny squares: 2 small, one medium, and 1 large.
I made these for the Pink Slipper Project.
Now all I need to do is search for the address to send them to.
If I can't find it then these will go to a local nursing home.
They make a nice stocking stuffer, great for giving to nursing homes to warm the feet
when someone is in bed. They work up fast and wash up nice.
I can make a pair in a day.
That is about all that is new. I did get my driveway sealed and my furnace checked
for the winter.
I mowed grass again for what seemed the millionth time.
I babysat my grandson a few times and today it is raining.
I started a knitted cap for my grandson. It is on the needles now.
Then I want to make a matching new scarf for him too.
When those are completed I will show you.
Until then, take care and have a wonderful and safe weekend ♥
