Latest bits and pieces

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything in here.  I’ve been crocheting and have done one beaded/embroidered piece. I work part time, garden, cook and do some ‘home caring’ in between. I’ve got dust that has settled, etc., etc.  I’m sure some of you know what I’m talking about.

I’ve not been keeping up with my TAST stitches.  Here’s the latest piece I did right around my birthday, combining several stitches.  I had a horrible time with two or three of them and got more depressed.  I did this a day or two before my 63rd birthday.


Now it’s a couple of weeks later and I’m still NOT caught up.

I’ve still got to practice needle tatting.  Haven’t done anymore since the first couple of try pieces.

Here is the beaded/embroidered piece that I did.  I’ve still got to mount it and put it into the frame.



Below are some more crocheted needle cases and some Irish crochet roses.


Crocheted Irish roses in silver. I thought ladies who do crazy quilts might like these.  We’ll see.


I enjoyed making all of these, but really enjoyed making this one. Even though these pieces are small, they are time consuming.


These below are actually a copper color.  I’ve got to take better pictures.  The color of the piece that they are lying on is the color above, not the sickly color shown here. Sheesh.

Silver, light orchid/pink, dusty rose, river blue.

Needle cases and babies on my workspace.


Babies are right around 2” tall.  Teeny, tiny babys.  The hardest thing is stuffing them and tying the bow on their bonnets.


Here are the babies stored in an empty egg carton, the plastic lid closes over them so that each one is in her own little compartment.


Now, the hardest part is figuring out how to price everything. Creating is so much more fun.

I’ve really got to figure out what to do with all the pieces I have beaded but not done anything with yet either. Sigh.

Happy Creating, whatever your medium.
