Just finished this mommy bunny..she is about 16" tall..she is a big doll, I have weighted the bottom so it can be used as a door stop.  Her little babies are 5" tall and are also weighted so they will sit up straight.

Taking a break from crafting

Last week I made a poodle skirt and a twirl skirt (butterflies) for my granddaughter.  She loves skirts/dresses that are full of twirl and the one with butterflies definitely has twirl...lots of fabric. I bought the t-shirt and removed the white buttons and added black ones. The little purse turned out so cute... I wrapped the hanger that came with the t-shirt in the black with white dots fabric and attached a yoyo.

It was a perfect weekend here in South GA...my daughter and granddaugter met us at the spring Calco Arts and Crafts show on Saturday.  It was my granddaughter's first craft show...she's 4 1/2...her favorite items...hair bows and dresses.  The spring show is not as full of vendors as the Fall, we are vendors in the Fall but not the spring. So we went as visitors this past weekend. After Calico, we all went out to lunch to Hardee's...they have toys in the kids meals. I am working on my granddaughter a twirl skirt and will post pictures when I finish.  The picture of the bridal wreath (spirea) is the same as the 4th picture below....spring has arrived....enlarge it for a really good view.  We will be plating our garden next weekend...tomatoes, yellow squash, zucchini and okra....we have already  planted some red onions and blueberry bushes.

Until next time....enjoy the spring weather

I Love Cookbooks

This is my newest cookbook...Our Best Bites.  The quality of this cookbook far exceeds all the others that I have.  The pages are glossy, one recipe per page with large awesome color photos of all recipes, lots of tips, freezing instructions, lots of "make ahead" recipes, suggestions of what to serve with, and these recipes are also in the book. I also found that I have most or all of the ingredients in my pantry...no fancy stuff.  Check it out on http://www.ourbestbites.com    Amazon sells the cookbook...this is a lot of cookbook for $15.59
