My MERRY CHRISTMAS Gift to you...

I would be pleased if you would join me and my Texas accent in my studio while we make a fabric doll. 16 step by step videos; almost in actual time and before you know it you will have a finished doll. Creating is good for the soul...

Merry Christmas!

A good day to curl up and knit...

It is cold and partly cloudy outside, homemade chicken soup is simmering on the stove, so this is a perfect day to curl up and knit. I put the finishing stitches on a pair of Firecracker Red socks and I now I need to start the second sock in the Plum Tweed to match my new pajamas I received for my birthday. For some reason, the second sock is always harder to start. It takes me a month or more to knit a pair of socks because I just do a few rounds in my spare time. Handknitted socks are a good *warm* thing!

Personalized Christmas Stocking EPattern

You have plenty of time before Christmas to make my new personalized stocking. It is simple and goes together really fast.

This 25” generous sized Christmas stocking has lots of room for Santa to leave you bobbles, bangles, beads, diamond earrings, vacation tickets, keys to a new convertible and oh so much more! But, here is where I have to tell you that the above mentioned items are not included in this epattern...only the pattern for the Christmas stocking with letters A-Z and numbers 1-0 so that you can personalize stockings for yourself, your family and friends and don't forget your pets.

This latest epattern is currently available for instant download at my PatternMart Shop.

It's beginning to look a lot like Thanksgiving!

Marketing has been done and Poppa and I are waiting with great anticipation for those first bites of pork roast (no turkey this year), dressing, cranberry sauce, gravy, turnip greens, deviled eggs, radishes, olives, sweet potatoe pie with whipped cream and iced tea. One of the best parts of Thanksgiving is all of the left overs, football and no cooking for a couple of days :)

Our table centerpiece this year is a maple leaf platter, a ceramic pumpkin, an autumn swag with leaves, berries, gourds, and corn complete with tassels, a pumpkin spice candle in a canning jar and a delightful handmade painted fabric highly scented crow with wire legs. The candle and the crow were part of a birthday gift from a very dear friend and business associate.

Unfortunately our family does not get along any more so traditional family get together dinners are a thing of the past. Poppa and I are sick with a nasty bug this year but we love each other and enjoy each other's company, no matter the circumstances and we accept things for the way they are. We will enjoy our Thanksgiving and be thankful for each other and God's grace.

May God bless you and your Thanksgiving.....

Pumpkin Cart Ride

All sorts of fun things go on in the pumpkin patch,
especially after the bewitching hour of midnight!

Meet Sassy!

Sassy is the newest member to our family. She is an energetic 3 month old bundle of joy Black Labrador Retriever that we adopted from a shelter in Grand Saline. She is a full time job and Poppa and I will have to stay on our toes. She is a Chewing Machine Monster from Hell!
