It's Saturday!

Top of the morning!  I have been a busy little bee.  Working on baby ghans to be exact.  I finished the pink one that I had showed awhile back.  However I lost my camera at the hospital where my sister had the babies. :-(  soo sad.  I wasn't as concerned about the camera even though it was fairly new...but the pictures.  I had about 600 of them..family vacations, Choir Concerts, reunions, weddings, outings with my family..Hoping and praying that someone will turn it in.

But onto another note, I have been working on baby ghans feverishly while I have been training.  The pink ghan went to a baby girl that was born with Spina Bifida and other health related issues.  My heart goes out to her parents and family.  May they find strength and courage. 

Above it the last picture I had, I believe I was working on the border. 
Here is another one that I whipped up this last week for an order..reminds me of sherbet..mmmm delicious and oh so soft and cuddly.


I am infatuated with this pattern and have started another baby ghan..they are wonderful to have in my stash as someone is always needing a gift or having a new arrival.  I have one blue ghan as well. Trying to prepare for the winter craft bazaars as they will be here before I know it.

Babies Babies!

Now where have I been now?  I bet you were wondering...well..I was greeting my new twin baby nieces!   They were born this Saturday June 16th and ohh soo precious and beautiful and lovely and just teeny tiny.  I fell instantly in love!  I begged, pleaded and cried,..I just wanted to bring them home with me.  But guess I will have to settle for being FAVORITE Auntie Lee.  Without further ado..here is a wonderful picture of them all dressed up for the ride home.

Birthday Sunday

Gooda evening friends!Been so busy that I can hardly breathe  but am slowly trying to remind myself to take a few minutes here and there to just relax.  With that being said, I have been trying to stockpile.  I am attending a sale this next weekend and want to make sure that I have lots of goodies.  Did finish the baby ghan this last week..Will post a pic of it tomorrow.  Here is what I worked on last weekend, listed them in my shop then replaced as they sold.  Aren't they just the cutest?  The soaps are glycerin with a bit of palm oil for softness...too sweet! Blueberry Pie, Cherrylicious, and Tangtastic...woohooo! 



Today is also my birthday-had a FantaStic Day with my family, I feel so loved, spoiled and grateful.  What a day!  Lunch, shopping, soaping, hanging out ...now to get myself ready for Monday.  hugs n squishes!

Happy SUNDAY

Hello hello!

Today is Sunday!  My ultimate favorite day of the week.  Time to get crackin on new projects, pack up the old and get ready for the week.

Last week was my first official week back to work..I work a seasonal job (about 6 months out of the year) it will definitely take time to get back into the swing of things but I am sure that I can do it?

I have a few soapy ideas floating around in my head, as soon as the family gets up and out of bed I will get to working.

Last week a friend of mine gave me a fantastic book called .  illy  can I just say that I am fascinated by this lil book?  Lots of yummy recipes for coffee any time of the day or night.  Oh my!  I can't wait to play!  Will let you know what coffee recipe I fall in love with.


Doesn't it just look delicious!  The Tarimisu coffee sounds decadent!  MMM MMMM  I am super happy.


What you may ask is in the background?  A new baby girl afghan that is in the works.  The pattern and tutorial can be found here  Thank you to my wonderful friends at Crochetville.  They inspire me to create time for a hobby that I so enjoy.

This is my new crochet hook..I love love love it!  I had it custom made from a wonderful lady on Etsy.  The thumbprint gives me sores, she was able to put the polymer clay over the entire thumb part.  Oh what a joy it is to use!  Here's her  shop  in case you want to check out her goodies, I so adore her.  Thank you Linda.

off for a bit of hook time.  Hugs n squishes!
