My Son's Moose.........

I love, love his moose. Just LOOK at him!
My son was 3 [he's 20 now] when he made this creature.......with the help of a very wonderful caretaker.
I had to share this with you all before leaving to visit with my son for a week.....but I'll be back!
What's that under the moose, you ask? Why it's some knitting I did for Glenda Hunt! I love, love this, too! ;)

Snowflake Earrings

This very handsome snowflake is crocheted with DMC Metallic Silver Floss, crochet hook US sz 5/1.7MM and sz 6 Clear Crystal Silver-Lined Beads. I buy most of my seed beads from Beadwrangler.
It turned out so beautiful. The designer is Mindy Albright and the Free pattern is on HMG.
Okay, so I have one more to make...:O)

The Raspberry Rabbits

Oh, oh, oh!!!! Just look what I got in the mail!!!
I ordered 3 items and got 5! Michelle packaged it so beautifully and gave me some chocolate and a 100-page journal!! What a wonderful and pleasant surprise! Thank you, Michelle!
I will be stitching the 12 days of Christmas Ornaments with these items. I selected the same variegated blue floss, as she did, and for almost the same sister Doris' eyes were a bright blue [8/58-11/97].
I need to also order the linen Michelle has on her website.

It's a little cold..... Chehalis, WA!!! Just look at the Timberland Library's lovely fountain! It's in freeze mode....
This is very unusual for this area.
When I walk outside, the grass crunches under my footsteps, my breath can be seen and my nose gets cold......I also feel alive..
I would love to hear how it is in your part of the country....and please include a link!

My tatted flutterby.....

I actually don't set aside enough time to do this. Since teaching myself, with a video from the library, how to shuttle tat - I've developed a real love for the old craft.
This is tatted with sz 10 crochet thread.
Once, on an airplane sitting between two men, I took my tatting out and began working. They both leaned forward and asked me what I was doing......we talked the whole trip about tatting!
Who would have thunk!
