Things I've made . . .

Here are just a few pics of what I've made recently ....

Gifts for our cat, Peaches
The balls are plastic practice golf balls, which I cut a slit in, then inserted a jingle bell, and then crocheted around it with a bit of scrap yarn,  the knot is a 3"x 11" piece of fabric, folded in half, sewn and stuffed and then knotted.  I thought about buying catnip and inserting it, but our cat doesn't seem overly thrilled with catnip, so I didn't bother.
At right is the stocking I made for her.


The above is the basket I made for my mom.  It's basket #5 for me. :)  I think she liked it.

 These are hats that I made for a Secret Santa program in a nearby town.  Hopefully they will help keep three people (kids and adult) warm.

Below are photos of items I made for a online group's secret santa exchange.  I don't think she's opened the package yet, so I'm still hoping she will like them.

ACBC - Kids at Christmas Video

Please let me know if the background music is too loud!  It sounds ok on my computer, but each one is different.  This will be played during service on Saturday night (Christmas Eve)...

Special Olympic Scarf Update

Hello! :)

We had a meeting of our knit and crochet group yesterday .. and lots going on!  Several members finished scarves and so we've increased our total! :)

3rd Scarf by FH

1st Scarf by FH's sister, EH

1st Scarf by NH

1st Scarf by ET
Aren't they great?  That brings our total up to ....

*drum roll please*

25 Scarves for Wisconsin Special Olympics!

Wow ..
Our number will get a little bit bigger, ET gave me a couple of skeins that she didn't think she'd be able to use and I'll probably get atleast 2 scarves out of that.  Also, NH is about 1/2 way through with another scarf - a really neat design by the way.  Can't wait to show you the finished product.. She's doing a great job on it.

I'll be mailing this box the first week of January.  Just wish I could see all the olympians faces when they get the scarves.  I'm sure they'll really enjoy them.

Another big happening, is that the local paper, the Ozaukee Press, came a took a photograph of our group with the scarves and did an article about us! Not sure if it is in this week's or next weeks paper, but I'm going to get a paper today to find out.  I'll let you know when I know!
