Hope you all are having a lovely day.
Mines has been improved by the addition of a cherry tree find, that is absolutely awesome!!!
(thanks Gem for the cute phrase to describe charity shopping )
I found this for fifty cents. It was published in 1971
It is really cute, except for the back, which shows this rather horrific baby.
I am not sure which is worse, the baby's scary face, or the woman's scary hair!!!!!!!!!!!!
Crocheted earrings anyone???
And I love the expression on this one's face. Very Top Model!
So I anticipate lots of fun poring through the pictures, and maybe managing to learn to read patterns, or maybe not, it may all just remain hyrogliphics in my head.
In other news, I forgot to mention in the excitement of my last post, that in the post before, where I showed you the hat and scarf I had made for the three year old party the next day.............
Remember that? Because I confused myself a bit writing that!!
Anyway, the day after that post, daughter#2 and I were all dressed up and driving to the party.
We had been on the road for about 10 minutes, when I decided to call my brother, to see if his girls would be at the party.
He informed me that I had gotten the date wrong, and the party was in fact on the next weekend. I felt like a right goose!!!
So, long story short, we went to the party yesterday and daughter#2 enjoyed herself immensely, and I scoffed far too much party food!
And the birthday girl seemed to quite like the hat and scarf combo, and wore it during the party, so I was chuffed with that!
In other news, I am quite pleased that I posted about the scary doll I made, as there was so much lovely feedback about her. Thanks to Cuckoo she now has a name, Petula, and she will soon be having a partner, thanks again to Cuckoo's suggestion. My plan is to make her a suitable similar looking doll to hang out with. So it's more than likely that her partner will, instead of looking like a serial killer, which is what I'm planning, end up looking ridiculously cute!!
Anyway, here is a photo of my thongs to end today's post.
These are my absolutely favourite weekend shoes. They are super comfy Birkenstock style shoes, and I absolutely love the little crochet flowers on them. I bought these eons ago, before I had even started to crochet again.
So I shall farewell you all now, and as always hoping everyone is doing well, and having an amazing weekend, where you are doing the things you love to do with the people you love.
