~Finished Projects~

I thought I would share a few crocheted and knitted projects that I made for gifts. First is this red and white crocheted afghan, it was a gift to our home. A fun and quick afghan to make.

This baby girl crocheted blanket and knitted sweater was a gift for my niece Christine who had the most beautiful baby girl named Heidi two months ago.
Also for Heidi a knitted blanket and hat.

Another baby gift crocheted blanket and knitted hat. This was for our niece Amber who we (thought) was having a baby girl, but it's a boy who will be born this Friday Dec. 11 and we can't wait to meet him. So for now I will save this gift for the next baby girl to be born.
A quick sewing project, this red and blue blanket was for our Grandson Ty who love Cars and Optimus Prime! These are quick blankets that all the kids love. I sewed 11 pockets into Ty's blanket for him to keep his cars. The blanket is reversible.

A brown, green and white crocheted blanket and hat's were a gift for our niece Amber, who is having a baby boy who's name will be Logan and will be born this Friday Dec. 11.

I 'm still working on our giveaway gift for our upcoming 100th post. I am trying to post more so I can get to the 100th post.

My fingers have been very busy every day while resting on the couch. I can't wait to show you what I've been working on for our first giveaway.

Until the next post we wish you all good heath and the love of your family during the Christmas Season!

~Guest Cottage Sign~

As you look down the hallway to the Guest Room you will see this sweet vintage sign "Guest Cottage" made by Paula from "Castle & Cottage" http://www.castleandcottage.blogspot.com/

Come on in, I have shown you all this room before but I thought you might like to see some of it again.

So there you have it. I love the sign so much and its fun to walk down the hallway and see it hanging on the door.

I am still resting on the couch with my foot up until I see the Doctor on the Dec. 11 for the bandages to be removed. A few of you have told me you had foot surgery too and so you know what I am going through.
I am trying to read as many blogs as I can, please know I am visiting you all, just not able to leave a lot of notes at this time.
Thank you all for you kind words and thoughtfulness. I love you all and thank you to all who follow me, its so very sweet and kind of you. I have really been enjoying seeing all your Christmas decorating. I will see if my sweet husband will hang a few of our wreath outside for me this weekend. He has been cooking and picking up the house for me while I'm down, how sweet is that and Mom and Dad have been over everyday to help me and Mom has been sick and she still comes over. I tell you, you really know who cares about you when you are sick. I am a very lucky girl.
