Just for Fun

Last weekend Eddie and I went to our friend's house to a party to celebrate her baby's one year birthday. My friend told me that she had looked at one year old birthday decorations and didn't find anything that she liked. She said she decided to make some tissue paper flowers. Well, after I saw them I had to know how to make them, so she showed me how and I made these. It's amazing what you can do with tissue paper. I had another friend show me how to make some carnatins out of toilet tissue.

Nostalgia - These Boots Are Made for Walkin'

I've been thinking about nostalgic things lately. When I was in junior high school, there was a popular song by Nancy Sinatra called These Boots Are Made for Walkin'. I thought I would put the video here for you to see. And, my girlfriends and I each had a pair of those white "go-go" boots. Thought we were hot stuff walking around in those things.

Madeline's Sweater

A couple of months ago I knitted a sweater for a friend's baby girl. Her name is Madeline and she has just celebrated her first birthday. I miscalculated a bit and this sweater is much bigger than I thought it would be, but her mom says that she will grow into it soon, so I'm happy about that. I hope Madeline likes it when she's big enough to wear it.

I found the pattern on the inside of a yarn label. I bought the yarn at Hobby Lobby and the yarn is I Love This Cotton yarn. I'm not sure if the pattern is in all of the labels, but it was in several of the skeins that I bought to make an afghan with. It was a very simple sweater and lots of fun to make.
