Playing Catch-up.... AGAIN :)

So it's been a while.  I think I go through seasons of liking to update my blog and not liking to.  I tend to post everything I make on facebook and forget to keep a better record of it here.  Anyway, here are some fairy shoes I made the past few months.

This one my daughter found while she was hunting for leprechaun treasure in the yard on Saint Patty's.  She figured finding one of their shoes as almost as good as their treasure. :)

I've been meaning to do something fun with this table for a while now.  For some reason I made it happen yesterday. hahahaha  I was walking past it in the morning and said to myself, "Ok.  Get out the paints and do it!"  So I did. :) 

I've been learning how to crochet from a cute lady at my church.  She has a goal to teach a bunch of us "youngsters" how to do it and then have us all make together 100 sets of these hats and booties to donate to the hospital across the street.  This was my first completed set.  I've made several more since, but then then started buying my own yarn and thinking it would be fun to alter the pattern a little to make a hat for Pip and her buddies. :)  Then I'll go back to making for the hospital again.

Kendyl loves to sit and make crochet chains, pull them all out and start over again.  She doesn't want to learn any other stitches yet.  hahaha  This is her sitting on the floor at church making her long snaky chains. :)
 Here's one of the hats I made for Pip.  Actually she is giving this one to her buddy.  She wants me to make her's with yarn that is more sparkly. hahaha  What a girly-girl.  LOVE IT! :)

Ok.  So there's more to update, but that's all I've got time for now.  Later!

I just had flashbacks to you knitting through church in college with that garbage sack and your blanket in it. :) Those were some serious fun times. :) I miss you!
