Sharing Craft finds

Yesterday my daughter took me to the Dollar Store and I found these wonderful fall decorations!  A huge orange leaf pre-cut in felt...
...And paper doily leaves both Maple and Oak!  Aren't they wonderful?  I think it would be fun to string the leaves for a garland or use them for fall card making.  The large felt one went right on my front door :)

And some of the doilies will probably be put in windows.  I love the colors and the delicacy of the lace leaves.  Such fun!  
   Visit your Dollar Store, there is one around every corner-ha!

A Gift from my Granddaughter

My granddaughter made me this wonderful dry erase board, I just love it!  She is so clever.  It was made with photo matting, scrapbook papers, rhinestones for my initials, and she printed the days of the weeks.  It is framed in white and the glass works wonderful for a dry erase board!  I hope you like this idea as much as I do. It made a bright spot on my kitchen counter.

I love homemade gifts!!

Thanks for coming and hope you will visit again soon!

Guess Who is Going to Be "Great Grandma" ?

I am excited as I am going to be a great grandmother for the first time and today we found out it is a girl!  So exciting!  I had bought both pink and blue yarns to knit a hoodie for the new babe and started with pink--intuition??  I have the back done so far.  Love this yarn and I got the pattern free on line from Red Heart.

I love the shade and it is working up so fast!  Using size 6 needles and Red Heart Plush Baby yarn.  It is beautiful and only takes 2 skeins to make this sweater!  Sorry I have not been posting lately, I have been working a lot and made a trip to my hometown to see my son and family (see Kerrie's Korner Blog to see pics)
  I am also painting a bird house with morning glories and birds on it.  Working just puts a cramp in my crafting-ha!  But hopefully I will have to work only Monday this week :)
 Cannot wait to paint the rest of this!
At least got some color started on the morning glories.
