I made another round pillow this week to give to a very good friend for Christmas.  I hope she's not reading my blog, or else it won't be a surpise.  LOL  I made it in green and decided to embellish it this time with leaves, and I added a small pearl to the center of each flower.  I think it just adds something to the pillow.  I also added leaves to my pink pillow.  Now, I have to make some more of these pillows to keep for myself.  I just love them because the round shape is so unique and Victorian looking.

Last week our Christmas cactus at work started blooming.  I had been meaning to take my camera to work so I could get a picture of it and this morning I finally remembered to bring my camera.

Another Christmas Doily

After I made the first Christmas doily, I decided that I needed another one, so I made another one, but in a different pattern.  I've made this one before in another color.  I thought it would be pretty to put under a candle or something like that during the holidays.  I'm pleased with the way it came out.

I ran across this picture tonight of a supper we had back in the summer.  It just looked so pretty that I took a picture of it.  That night we had friend salmon patties with homemade tartar sauce, fresh sliced tomatoes, green beans, fresh fried squash and cornbread.  It was delicious!  I must be getting hungry again because I want to make this meal again.  I won't have the fresh tomatoes or the fresh squash, but I have some store bought squash in the frig, so maybe I will make this meal tomorrow.

Round Crochet Cushion

For the past couple of weeks I've been crocheting again.  I made the Christmas doily and then I made another Christmas doily (photo to come later), and now I've made a round crochet cushion.  I've been seeing these in blogland and I think they are so vintage looking.  This is my first one and I was trying to decide whether to put leaves on it or not.  I may still do that, but for now, this is what it looks like.
