My package

Yesterday in the mail, I recived this beautiful yarn. From my good friend Betty http://mysticklobo.blogspot.com/ you can find out what a wonderful person she is there. Thanks Betty!!!

Cecillia's Sweater

Not really what I expected from this pattern. I'm upset as i paid for this pattern, it was confusing to read and had some typos I had to figure out. Didn't turn out as lacy as I would have liked. But all and all I'm sure my beautiful grand daughter wont complain. After all she is only a few months old. Thanks for looking!

My Treasures

Today I helped my MIL reorganize her walk in closet. She had a few things from her Mothers things that she kindly rewarded me with. Although I don't think she thought of it that way as she is a very kind and giving person. These things will be close to my heart as her Mother was a wonderful person too. I feel very special to have received them. And look what treasures they are even a learn to crochet book by Susan Bates! I feel like I struck gold!!! Also she had 2 beautiful cape type poncho's she had knit years ago for her Mother. She was gonna give them away but I couldnt let her! They will be pictured later on my blog soon! She did a beautiful job!

Finished Slippers

I do love the way these turned out, they were the practice pair so I could make my mistakes on them. I did learn to cut them a bit bigger at the top of the foot and the part that goes around the foot. Barbie loves these reguardless and is wearing them now. :) So it makes it all worth while!

Mary Jane Slippers

ok here is the link i found http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2007/01/craft_pattern_podcast_repurpos.html Not quite finished as i need to add snaps to the sides they say to use vlecro but I like the snaps better. I did learn i need to cut them out a bit more for the toe area to cover the toes. Will have to go to the fabric store to get them. still working on #2 slipper but learned from these and am working on another pair for Jadens sister, dont want her to feel left out! Im useing a free pattern from online but have (as always) altered it to fit what i like. Thanks for taking a look!
