Not a total loss

Yesterday wasn't a total loss. I did manage to get a few things done, but not nearly enough.

This little doll is made of spools. It's amazing what kind of stuff I have to craft with when I start looking.

My granny made me one of these when I was little. I loved my little spool doll. I wonder what ever happened to her? I mainly did this just to see if I could remember how she went together. I might do some of these for the girlies that are too little for aprons.


















I finished this child-sized scarf in chocolate brown.


















I need to get a list made up for the nieces and nephews so I can see where I'm at in the gift making. I'm going to be an aunt again somewhere around December 11th. Gosh! That will be number 25.

Today I finally got my next apron cut out. It's a new pattern and I'm having to think about it too much. I think it's going to be really pretty if I can get over this mental block I'm having.

LOL! Right after Christmas.

Maybe I should try to make double everything.

Hello from East Texas (Hunt County) I have recently been divorced and I have moved into what ai think is a Caddo House. Do you know where I can find information on these dwellings?

Ken, it would be interesting if your house was a Caddo house.
