Rainbow Cloud Hat

I got a request for this hat and it turned out so beautifully I may need to make one for myself and both of my girls.  It truly is a hat from over the rainbow.


I got so many compliments on this shawl.  It was very easy to do.  This particular one is for my good friend Mary.  I sure hope she enjoys it as much as I do.

Skull and cross bones loafers

Because Halloween is a few days away I thought I'd post pictures of a pair of loafers I did a while ago.
Spooky and cute at the same time.  
Happy Halloween!

I was asked by a friend for a baby shower gift for a boy.  But not a typical hat or blanket or teddy bear.  So we brainstormed.  The baby's nursery is alphabet themed so I tossed around the idea of stuffed letters to hang on the wall and a few other possibilities.  But then we decided on these awesome little blocks.  Primary colors plus green and even letters on one side spelling out the baby's name.  As soon as I finished the first block, my youngest wasted no time in testing it out.  
Sophie's checklist::
Eye catching color scheme...check
Don't want to give it back to mommy...check.

So I'd say these blocks are a success!

Auburn Owl

Disclaimer* The making of this Auburn Owl shall in no way implicate me as an Auburn fan.  
Roll Tide!

Crescent Rolls...

What to do with the tube of crescent rolls just sitting in the fridge?? That's what I just asked myself.  My answer, why don't I try making something different?  So that is what I did.

The package said preheat oven to 375* so I did that.  Before I put them in I sprinkled basil and added a quarter of a mozzarella string cheese stick to each one.

Baked for 11-13 minutes...                                                           
 Result, yummy little treats that the girls loved.  Next time though I'll add tomatoes for a caprese crescent effect.
