Goodies

If you like cross stitch, go see Doris and enter her giveaway!

***********************


I made THESE little flower rings yesterday.

They turned out really cute.  They took less than 30 minutes each to make.  Both times I ended up with one extra stitch at the end.  I don't know if the pattern is wrong or if I just couldn't count yesterday.  But I counted stitches after each round and supposedly it was correct.  Whatever..I just skipped the extra stitch at the end and joined in the next stitch.  You can't tell.  But I'm curious if you make one if the same thing happens to you.  I hung these two on the wall to take the picture.  You can see the nail heads at the tops...just in case you're wondering what that is.

And then Fletch and I were just hanging out...


Then suddenly he perked up and said...


"I think I heard something!"


"No, really!  It came from over there!
I'll go investigate.  You wait here."


"Yep...it's the mailman!
And he's got a big box!"

We answered the door and took the box and brought it inside.

WOW, look what I got!


Another birthday box from my bestie, Kate.


Yipee...yarn!


And one of her hand-made rice bags!

Perfect for a 50-year-old's aches and pains.  I think the Captain was just as excited over this one as I was.  The home-made rice bag I made consisted of an old pantyhose foot filled with rice and knotted at the top.  Hee-hee.  This one is so soft and pretty with the rice neatly sewed into a muslin cloth and then a layer of soft fleece.


And another hand-made gift.  A crocheted pincushion made from the top of a jar lid.  Inside the jar are all sorts and colors of cute buttons.

Thank you, Kate!  What a fun birthday package.  I love all of it.

Today I'm just hanging out at the house and relaxing and crocheting and maybe cooking something for dinner later.  It's nice and really cool today.  It's going to be cold tonight so we're going to have a fire.  Maybe I'll make a nice soup of some kind.  That sounds good.

Y'all enjoy your Saturday too!
