A little girl, far away, lost her favorite toy horse. What could I do, but make her a new, pink one? I had a lot of fun with this, her mother was so generous with yarn! Lots of pink to spare!

Can you tell what this is? A shawl. My own pattern. I don't know what it is I don't like about this shawl. I'm trying another in a different color and pattern. For anyone who would like the free pattern, email me and I'll send it to you.

At last, the inside of the little house. You can see the first resident. She is the first naked bendy person to get an outfit sewn on . Only a dozen of those to go. So, there are some parts of the house that could use a little more attention, but the girls are just glad they can play in it now.

Strawberry ice cream cone. I keep making these because no matter what I try to crochet- it all turns out like a bulb. (even the straight/flat patterns) Nothing left to do but add a cone. I may give up on the crochet for a while and stick to knitting.

Crochet. My first time trying to crochet. It started as a circle, then a bowl, then a ball, then I wasn't sure. Turns out, it's an ice cream cone. If only I had a pattern...or had written it down as I was working. I'm secure in my love for knitting, although someone gave me a pattern for pretty crochet snowflakes so I had to learn how.
It may not look crafty, but I'm proud of it. We love the Tupperware popsicles but they are so big, they start to drip before the kid finishes. These are cheap small ones from the Dollar Tree. Thing is, they did not work. Several times we've made them and the stick pulls right out, pop is still in the mold. I noticed the Tupp ones had holes in the sticks so the juice can melt and freeze between the stick. So, I took out the drill and made holes in all the smaller cheapies. It worked! Note: these are made of pureed mango, plain yogurt, and protein powder.
