Little Baby Butterfly Cocoon ............... perfect for photo props!

We have been busy with company,  have so enjoyed the chit chat and catching up with life long friends.  This week I shall be working on new listings in my Etsy shop   Here is a peek at my latest butterfly cocoon photo prop for your baby.  I will be listing soon!  Bright and colorful to make those special keepsake photos something to cherish. I used Redheart yarn and a soft fluffy textured fibre yarn.  I just love the RosePink and Turquoise together.....  the deep amethyst give nice accent.

New project on the hook!

After a very busy spring & summer, fall is upon us! Catching you up to my world... spring of 2016 kept us busy in the yard, finally got a small garden in! I also had many trips, almost one a month to my daughters in Calgary, for christening, 1st birthday, and then to help with a long distance move. Between visiting with friends, time flew by.... Summer brought our eldest grandaughter out for a 2 month Okanagan visit. We had a wonderful time ... activities each and every day, going to the beach alot! I had very little time for creating, but we did create treasured memories! Thats what counts! Family is important!  We were blessed to have her longer than our usual 2 -3 weeks!
September brought a wonderful visit with my kids in Florida, we had so much fun and the baby is now walking and a going concern. Beach life is very relaxed and I found every one so friendly down there! I left just before Matthew arrived! My thoughts and prayer to all those affected. My kids evacuated inland during the storm.
Gradually getting back into the swing of things, picking up some new projects, finishing ones started, I hope to reopen my Etsy within a few weeks!
Hope you all have a fabulous fall! I'd love to hear what's new with you!

Finishing Projects!

Been working on finishing some beanies this week.....  
Soon to be listed for sale!

Tonights project is sewing crocheted flower and leaf appliques on a basic navy beanie!  
I do love the color contrast with the bright fushia pink on the navy.
Were having company for a luncheon tomorrow, so I have scads to do, so I cannot spend too much time playing tonight.  I shall post a finished project tomorrow evening.

I am anxious for the weekend to come, as I will be starting  my next bubble blanket.  The colours are all bright pinks, yellows and prints.  I am excited to see its progression.
These #TummyTime #BubbleBlankets are pillowy soft.
A Big Hit for a Shower Gift.
I will only be making 3 - 5 of these, this year
as hoping to get out of the house and be working again.

Here's a peek at the beautiful colors!

Hope you all have a Fabulous Weekend.....

Another girlie Mini Album!

Just a few pictures of another mini album on the table to be worked on this week.  I am sure it will take a few weeks to be done.... but I think its looking really pretty (lots of girly pink and bling) perfect to put those cherished photos in.   Will also have a few pockets for keepsakes, concert or movie stubs, and special notes.  Lots of tags and journalling spots.  
This one will be going up in my Etsy ..... down the road
