A Year Already?

Wow, it will be a year on Friday since I first started this blog. To celebrate how about a give away.

For a chance to win the tea cozy (tea pot not included), pin cushion and herbal tea pictured above leave a comment. I will draw the winners name on Monday, April 5. You can also leave/send me a comment on my facebook page for a second chance to win. Good Luck!

Aren't they cute!

In an earlier post I mentioned a lady at my husband's work who crochets a top on tea towels that makes the towel look like a dress. I really like the look of these so I asked her to make a couple for an upcoming wedding as part of the gift. I supplied the towels, yarn and buttons and she made them up. To pay it for doing this I made her a tea cozy. My husband brought home the finished towels yesterday. Aren't they cute!

Tea Anyone....

There is a lady at my husband's work who makes the cutest crochet dress tops on tea towels. I have trouble following a crochet pattern. I read the pattern, do what it says but it rarely turns out. I asked this person if I supplied the towels, yarn and buttons if she would make a couple of these towels to include in a wedding gift for my husband's niece this June. She said she would so we worked out a barter of sorts. She would make up the towels if I would make her a tea cozy.

I have had this tea cozy pattern by Fran O'Neill, ( for a couple of years now and I have made it once before. I decided it would be the perfect project to work on for the Friday Nite Sew-In. (See link in side bar)

Where does the time go??

The next Friday Nite Sew-In is happening on the 19th of March. It doesn't seem that long since the last one. I have made a little progress on the quilt top I started in February but I set it aside for a bit when my brother passed away at the end of February. While we were dealing with his passing my brother-in-law lost his battle with cancer in the same week. I have finally gotten the energy to work on the quilt again. I am hopeing to get the top done by the end of March.

My niece, Christina has been bitten by the blogging bug and has started a blog about her photography. She has taken some wonderful pictures of sunsets and I look forward to following her blog. Check out the link in my sidebar.
