It doesn't take much it seems to pull me towards a new idea, when I should be working on one already started.  Case in point...

The new little something something that found its new home behind the sink.

Then there is the little matchy piece that sit under my Great Aunt Myrtle's prized possession. 

And of course the table could not be left out from having its own new piece.
Now there are more "new" ideas just waiting to be planned and created.
To bad I can't just wiggle the nose and have things appear.
How awesome would that be!!!!

It is raining here again today.  Not a bad thing.  Saves on the water bill.
But it does take my all too lovely sunshine away.  yippee.
The girls are going around doing their thing before lessons.
Brenna was obviously inspired by her new set of books she's been reading and had to dress Charlie the hedgehog up to look like Fancy Nancy.
Very stylin'.
Then there is to be more work on the baby blanket when things settle down today.  Can't show much you know because I never know if my SIL Teresa will be looking.  Must be a surprise!
I'm crocheting it all in one piece.  There's little bobbiny things hanging off of it all over on the back.

I think I might just have to go find something to bake that is warm and yummy since it is cool and damp here today.  One must keep up the coziness of things on days like this.


  1. I love all your pretty projects, Kar. I think I need to do a nice runner for my kitchen table with some placemats. You are such an inspiration. Awesome!

  2. How pretty! You are so talented. Our weather has gotten way too hot for this time of year. It's supposed to be nice and in the 70's in May, but it's been in the mid to upper 80's and terribly humid, so we've had to have our air conditioner on. The humidity is just awful! On one of our last cool and damp days we had about a week and a half ago I made some chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Have a cozy day!

  3. Love it!
    I was just thinking the other day how I should make a table runner and now that I see yours it is a project that I am going to make sure is on my to-do list!
    MMMM,I might have to make something warm and yummy too!
    Have a cozy day!

  4. Kar, your table runner is awesome. So pretty!

  5. Yes, I love all your pretty projects too. I love how you continue to add pretty little handmade things throughout your house. I know the blanket will be equally fabulous too. :-)

  6. Awesome projects Kar! You have Big Boy on your counter. I can't tell you the last time I've had a Big Boy sandwich!

  7. Love all the matchy items they look great and I especially love the colors you picked for them, it looks wonderful :)

    Did you follow a pattern?

    You're such an inspiration for my crocheting.

    Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend Kar :)

  8. I agree with Sandra! The cute little matchy things just ROCK! Pattern?

    Now...the BIG BOY!!!! OMG he is absolutely TO DIE FOR!!!! Lucky lady to have that cute little guy to keep you company every day. ;-)
