My first thank you letter.

Here is the thank you that I received. It is from the nurse at Pine Ridge Reservation OB Unit. It is my first personal thank you and I donated it through my Crafting for a Cause group. What a wonderful group of folks they are. Yeah I am a bit excited. It sure makes you feel good.

I just wanted to share with you, busy today cleaning out the garage and getting ready for the big garage/yard sale that we are having on June 5th through 7th. Wow, I have a lot of stuff to sell that I don't need.

The Tooth Fairy

One of my friends grandsons is getting ready to lose his first tooth so I offered to make him a pillow. I bought the pattern from JayBird Designs and it worked up nice and quick. Below is a photo of front and back. I used the green glow in the dark for the pocket so that the Tooth Fairy would have no trouble finding the place to put the cash or whatever it is that tooth fairies leave for the kids today. All it in I think it turned out cuter an I do hope that Master Colin likes it.

I also finally finished the laprobe that I was making for the elder group at the Crocheting for a Cause Group that I belong to, I think it will match on of the wheelchair bags that Cherri made perfectly.

Thats all for today. *HUGS*

Larksfoot Stitch baby sweater

As you know I have already made/created this sweater but have not written up the instructions. Yesterday I attempted to and only got too row 4 before giving up. So I went ahead and finished up this one and will start another and use a different method as my husband suggested. I am going to record myself making one and then I will play that audio back and write up the instructions. What a great idea. I sure admire all those designers out there that publish their patterns so quickly.

Anyway here is a picture of the sweater that I made yesterday. It's not bright newborn colors but will keep a baby warm regardless.

Thinking of you

Although I have not blogged regularly as I usually do, I just wanted you all to know that I think of you often.
