Tuesday Good Morning April 30, 2014

Hello visitor's,

Hope all are doing well today.  Temp. here is very cool in South East Missouri.  Sure wish we could
get some stable temp.'s. 

Our garden is growing really good in spite of the constant changing in temperature.  Our grand daughter came in from school yesterday with some packages of seeds her teacher gave her to plant, so grandpa will be making her a special spot in the garden to let her grow her seeds. 

I finished two more PK doilies, and will be sharing a picture of both.  Love her designs.  I am also
still working on my DGS's afghan.  I am hoping to have it finished by Christmas.  I am anxious to get the cars and trucks appliqued on it.  Not sure just how I will design it up with different things.  I have some idea's, but time will be either on my side, or not in adding what I want to the afghan. 

I will hopefully get a May 2014 snowflake made some time soon for those of you that are enjoying making them.  I love to make other people's designs, as well as trying to design my own to share.

Our daughter in law had her gallbladder removed Monday, so I've been trying to see to her.  She is doing really good though. 

Thank you everyone that comes and visit's my blog, and makes my snowflakes.  You are welcome to leave me a comment.  I love hearing from you that come visit.

Try to stay safe during all the bad weather that is sweeping the states.  There is a lot of flooding in area's around here.  We are high, so no problem for us, but others are not fairing so well. 

Your friend,

I've been making stitch markers.  We have a $ jewelry store, and I stopped in today, and bought some ear rings.  I removed the ear piece and put rings, and closures on them to make stitch markers for my
crochet.  I love the flip flop, bicycles, combs, cameo's, and flowers.  The rest of them are made from
charms I bought at Wal-Mart.  I have one more stitch marker I didn't show.  I now have 32, and I think that will be enough to use on any project.

Just though I'd share with you what I've been doing.

Hopefully I will be sharing another snowflake soon.  Just keep checking back.

Have a great day crafting,
