Catching up

Standard

Earlier in the month,I made an eel to drop in Florida (link).  I didn’t get to drop it though, there was too much going on.  Instead, I found a new medical clinic here and decided to drop it there but each time I would pass the place, there were too many people around.  Half the fun of making these toys, is dropping them while no one is looking.   This morning, I took Mojo to be groomed and noticed they had a planter out front so I dropped Mr. Eel there.

Here he is waiting to be taken home.  I hope he is gone when I go pick Mojo up!

  Then, deciding I needed to get down to Christmas crafting, I made 2 little purses with appliquéd birdies.  I added a crocheted flower and charm for fun.  July’s MIM gift (link) is done!

I lined each with fabric to match their birdies…

I’m going to put a few goodies inside each purse before wrapping them up for Christmas.  Maybe a toy and one of those plastic coin holders that will open when you squeeze it.  My mom always said you have to put a penny inside a purse for good luck when you give it as a gift.  

I continue to crochet cat beds for the local animal shelter.  I’m up to 10 now and hope to do several more by fall.  It is just a simple mat but my cats love them and will use them until delivery day.  If you want to see them or get the how to, click here.

About yarnigras

its the little things that bring me joy...my children's laughter, my husband holding my hand, Ginger's thump of her tail each and every time I see her. A jar of buttons or marbles, some pretty yarn; planting seeds and then watching them grow. Helping a turtle to cross the road, discovering tree frogs and toads in our yard...watching a snail meander across a potted plant or a ladybug run to the tip of my finger then fly away. The smell of hay, saddles and horses; finishing a project that I know will make someone happy, cooking someone's favorite meal, finding something for my garden...like a hummingbird's nest...how amazing is God's world!
