The Mohawk Dudes

This is my son, Brandon, and my grandsons (Brandon’s nephews), in their camo Mohawk hats I made for them. Brandon had bought the yarn for me to make one for him, and he mentioned that Clayton might like one.  Since I made Clayton one, I thought it only fair to make Lawson one as well.  We were all at my daughter’s house the other night, and the boys posed for this picture. :)

Doily Runner

I saw the idea for one of these on Pinterest.  My daughter and I both liked the idea.  I made her one for Christmas, which I couldn’t post on here until today…for obvious reasons.  She loves it, and this picture is one she took of it on her table.  A few of the doilies I just made up as I went along.  I wanted to make sure I had a variety of sizes.  The one on Pinterest was made of vintage doilies, I think, but I thought it would work just as well with new doilies. :)

Blues and Purples

I have been busy making Christmas presents, which I can’t show here yet for obvious reasons, but on Sunday I decided I wanted to play around with some Simply Soft yarns that I had on hand.  I loved the colors and thought I’d make a bunting with them. But as it turned out I ended up making ornaments instead.  I bought a small tree…3 feet tall, I think…at a garage sale last year, and I think I will put it up after Christmas and have a “winter tree”.  I will put these ornaments on it, as well as others that I *might* get made. :)

Little Hooties & My Christmas Tree Decorating Helper

Last week I purchased the pattern for these little owls.  Once I got started making them, I couldn’t seem to stop!  All of these ended up on my Christmas tree, except for the one in the bottom right-hand corner.  It will probably be a tuck-in gift in somebody’s Christmas card. I’m hoping to get a few more made.  Right now I am in the beginnings of some sickness though.  Fever, sore throat, etc. I hope that whatever it is leaves me quickly.  I have too much I want to do before Christmas.  Anyhoo, I mostly went by the pattern, but I did my own thing for the owl’s beak.  I did it according to the directions first time around, then decided I wanted to do something else.  If you’d like to make some of your own little hooties, you can purchase the pattern here.

Little Hooties

Here is a picture of Miss Adelyn, who was my Christmas tree decorating helper yesterday.  The guys were out hunting, and she hung out with Gramma Rita. :)


I was in the bathroom when she came to the door and told me she was hungry (we had already eaten lunch), so I told her she could get a pack of gummies out of the pantry.  When I came out, this is what I found.  ;)  LOL  She *did* get the gummies, as well as some cookies.  She cracks me up!


I made chili for supper, and she helped me stir the cornbread.
