About Me

My photo
I am 45. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. In 2015 we added another beautiful young adult to our house, our niece, and she has been a great joy! Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first.

Wedding Gifts

FINALLY, I am done with the wedding gifts for Matt and Lisa!! He works for the Forestry Department and their house is all woodsy/animals/earthy...so I made them an afghan done in tree colors. lol. I got about 30 squares into my original 48 squares and thought I was going to lose my mind. So I decided to quit and jerry-rig a border. Well it turned out pretty cool looking. The border is done to look like fall leaves. **I will post the pattern for it tomorrow**.

Then I figured a fall leaf blanket needed a fall leaf pillow. So I made one from Patons Merino Wool and felted it. **Pattern posted tomorrow too!**

Then I rounded it out by making some pot holders and some dishcloths. Mom contributed by embroidering a set of kitchen towels with wildlife pictures...deer, bear, moose...etc. She did a great job. This is all coming from our two families, so it worked out really nice!
I hope they like it all. I know some of the colors are outrageous...but their house needs a burst of color!
Let me know what you think!
