Week In Review

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 ♥


  1. I love the granny square slippers Susanne. Any chance I can get the pattern.


    1. Sure thing. I will write up the pattern and post it this next week.

  2. Oh my goodness, you certainly have had a busy week. I like the tissue box cover - very colourful and pretty. I bet your Mom will love it. xox

  3. Hi Susanne. I've always thought those little Kewpie's were cute too - and I agree with you that they would be perfect in a nursery. The tissue box cover you made for your Mom looks very pretty and Spring-y - she'll love it for sure. The slippers look very nice too. Have a relaxing weekend. :)

  4. Very cute little Kewpie's. You sound like you have had a busy week, Ohio is cooling off I see so this just might be your last time to mow the grass. Love the slippers, they are going to be a wonderful treat wherever they might land.
    Hugs to you,
