Crafts from the great wide open

Plate canvas kissers

Did anyone else make these with Your Grandma when you were a kid? I had a good time making these with my daughter this Weekend. We gave then to the Church ladies after the Christmas pageant. they ave 10×10 squares sewn together ontwo adjacent sides. Does that make sense? Well they are a fun Trick.

amigurumi nativity in Crochet.

I had a  good time stitching up these dolls for my cousin. They were easy and cute but they have a ton of parts so it took quite a bit of time. Still I Love them. Great Stashbuster.

The pattern is available here : 1_editedWP_20141130_13_17_38_Pro_edited

Anyway, lets be friends on Pinterest?

Obligatory Halloween pumpkin post

Our inlaws grow fantastic pumpkins look at this beauty… Also Jeff is nearly one year old and Is having a fantastic time watching the chickens free range in the yard. With school and Halloween we have been out celebrating something every weekend and even spent a day launching pumpkins at Crow River Winery’s pumpkinfest.
