Well, a finish!

I started and finished the poncho this past weekend.  It is a pretty easy and fast pattern and came out just adorable too!  I found the yarn fairly easy to work with as well.  I would do another again!

My little collection jar show how busy a little beaver I have been!
Now I am working on my little doll.  Poor dear needs legs to stand on you know!  The legs are pesky things to do!  I bet the arms and head will be as well!
My beloved Jack is suffering thru a vertigo attack after being sweet and putting up a shelf for my salt and pepper shakers.  Most belonged to my grandmother on my mom's side.  One poor owl lost an eye along the way!  The potpourri heart is also hers and the little hummingbird I bought at the gift shop in a hospital where I worked.   The angel was a gift from my friend Angela and the round cross stitch was a present from a sweet friend in a nursing home where I worked.  The prayer is a piece I did.
Look!!!  It's a black pear!  LOL!  No, it's just Sylvia mad because I am not giving up the kitty cookies!
And flopping around on the sofa after dad gave her a kitty massage! 

Love those kitty toes!
Thanks for visiting!  Huggles and blessings.

Good for you! Finishing feels so good doesn't it? I had to teach myself that done is better than perfect!

I hope Jack is over his vertigo attack. Having been through them recently myself, I have enormous sympathy for him. Love your poncho! lol about Sylvia! She knows how to get her message across!

Ooo the poncho turned out great. It looks so soft, too. I am a bit afraid to start a "creature crochet" but I can't just make flat things forever!

Love your little shelf, what a great way to enjoy your memories. :D
