Made with Love

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! Woohoo!

I have a confession...I am a bad wife. :o(

Today is our 10th wedding anniversary, also the anniversary of the day we met 17 years ago. Hubby gave me a lovely, mushy card first thing this morning. I, however, forgot. I hang my head in shame.

In other news...

I finally finished the crochet elephant! And I must admit that it came out better than I anticipated. I am really a beginner at crochet and parts of the pattern made me nervous. I just kept going and when I got to the tough section, I seemed to understand. The most complicated section was the skirt of her dress, there was a lot of learning in that little skirt.

So here she is...Abby's Elephant!

Here's a new picture of little Abigail and her baby brother Zachariah. They are wearing their future school colors from Pacific Lutheran University. Their mom and dad are both alumni of PLU as is their Grandma, hubby's mom. I will be making something for Zach next and then ship both toys off to Indonesia.

What a cute little cheerleader!

I hope you all saw the little bear on Melissa's Life is Art...Art is Life blog today. It's really cute and it's for charity. The Mother Bear Project takes these little crocheted or knitted bears and gives them to children in need. If you go to their website you can read all about this project and see photos of the children and their new bears. I ordered my pattern today and will be making bears soon.

Today's Etsy store is Genuine Article. (This will end soon, contest ends 12/4) Please take a look at lovely hand made jewelry made by a woman, her mother and sister. They also have custom web banners.

I hope you all have great evening. I will talk with you soon!

    Nice creations, beautiful pictures.

  4. Mom says bad wife, bad wife, ha ha ha. You have had a few things on your mind, she thinks. The elephant is adorable. You did a fine job on it. Your grandchildren are also adorable.


  5. WOW! We are so impressed with your elephant! Our Mum cannot do crochet for her life - just cross-stitch and needlepoint. Maybe it is because she is a lefty?

    Love, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper

  6. Oh, that elephant is so cute! Precious Abby will just love it! Happy Anniversary to you and hubby! :)
