As you grow older you will discover that you

have two hands.

One for helping yourself, the other for helping others. " Audrey Hepburn

Gifts and Projects

I made a friend a kitchen set for her birhtday this month of wash cloth, scrubber, and jar opener. I had seen the opener at a craft fair and so I decided to design my own. I used cotton and shelf liner non-slip that you can get at the $1 stoe. It's like a rubber stuff. Works great and easy to crochet with. The scrubber I used netting with cotton on one side to make it rough to scrub pans. It is a little difficult to work with, but the end result is worth it.

I finished my DD wine bottle skirts for one of her Christmas gifts.I also am making her napkins with grapes on them and crocheting trim around the edges. Haven't completed them yet. I loved the glass heart beads I found for the connection, but I needed to add something to make each one different so I added a little different colored bead to each one of a tiny flower. Her dining table is black so I made it with silver thread and black glass beads. :)

I also made a gold pair. The gold beads are moon beads and a bit heavy but very elegant! I used 4 different buttons for this set.

Finished one Gift

I finally finished a gift for my sister. Its a small table runner for the middle of the table only. I made it ont of WW yarn with ribbon and I was pleased with the results. The photo does not do it justice...I am thinking of making a couple coasters and then she can use them for her coffee... I just started some more bracelets and a necklace for my BBF for Christmas...This is my "Good Luck Dice" bracelet with earrings they are available in my Etsy store.
