Camera Bag

This was so cute! I had to make it. I thought when I first saw the pattern that it was for a toy camera and I would have to alter the pattern to make a bag. I was really excited to see it was a bag. The picture of the bag was on the web site a few weeks before the added the pattern. I checked back several times a week, watching for the pattern. I used scraps of cotton yarn to make the bag. I ran out of red so I have not sewn the buttons on the sides or made the neck strap.

Start a new project?

I crochet the above Shawl as part of a CAL. It was fun. The shawl is more pretty than warm.

A trip to Joann's, and a need to buy just one ball of yarn, resulted in these colorful fingerless mitts.

A puppy bed! It is huge, but one of the kids usually ends up laying on it with the puppy.
It is made from a thrifted vintage sheet and 7 recycled bed pillows.
I sewed the 2' x 4' pillow ,and Myra cut open the flat bed pillows, fluffed up their inside, and stuffed the puppy pillow.
I then cut a big square from a faded Chenille blanket (a yard sale find for a dollar). I made the chenille into a fitted cover that can easily be thrown in the wash.

Happy Puppy!

Noah found a Latch hook kit that makes a stick pony. I have never done latch hook before. And I am not doing this one either. Although I may help when it comes time to sew the two halves together. (The eyelashes still need trimming.)

Spinach and Bacon Linguine. Recipe was on the pasta box. yummy!

Spring is here!

Erik is helping Noah learn to ride a bicycle.

Myra wanted a new hat. I had her pick out a pattern and tell me what color she would like. The yarn is Sinfonia, purchased at Hobby Lobby.
